American Jonathan Summerton has said he hasn't given up on his dream of racing at the pinnacle of the sport.

Summerton had hoped to get a chance in F1 with the US-based Cypher Group, but that project failed to get off the ground when the people behind it withdrew their bid to secure a place on the F1 2011 grid last summer [see separate story - click here].

Despite that setback though, the 22-year-old, who has competed in Indy Lights for the last two years, remains hopeful he will still make it, even though he doesn't have anything at all confirmed yet for 2011.
