Alex Lynn says the potential to graduate to Formula 1 with Williams is 'what dreams are made of' as he looks to put himself on the radar with the team ahead of possible driver shuffles.

The 21 year-old is considered Britain's leading junior prospect having won the GP3 Series on his first attempt in 2014, while he has already clinched two race wins in his maiden season of GP2 Series competition with five rounds remaining.

Having formerly been backed by the Red Bull junior programme, Lynn has since progressed to a role with the Williams F1 team as its development driver and has already driven the FW37 during May's in-season test at the Circuit de Catalunya.

Indeed, as a team with a good recent record of promoting its junior drivers, most notably Nico Hulkenberg, Bruno Senna and Valtteri Bottas, Lynn says the prospect of progressing to F1 with the iconic team is a 'dream' for him.

"The ultimate career path is to graduate into a race seat with Williams, that is what I really want to do," he told Crash.net. "It would be an amazing thing as a young British driver - that for me is what dreams are made of.

"You grow up watching Nigel Mansell and Damon Hill, so it is a special thing and I want to emulate that. My goal is to be a world champion and I want to be a world champion in a British team, so Williams is the perfect place for that."

With Williams potentially looking at hiring a new driver for 2016 as rumours persist that Bottas could be Ferrari-bound next year, Lynn says he would like to think he has a shot at a drive, but insists his priority is to maintain his form in GP2.

"I would like to think so. If the opportunity arose, I would definitely like to think so. I am doing my talking on the track in GP2, so all I can do is keep winning races and performing. I am in the factory every day, so they know my face is around. It is just about getting the right people to believe what I am capable of.

"There are loads of rumours. I just have to keep my head down and keep winning to the end of the year. That is my main focus at the moment. We have had talks about next year, but there are too many cogs to fit into place above me to even estimate what could happen to me."

At the half-way point in the GP2 Series season, Lynn is fifth in the standings with two race wins to his name.
