Williams new winter tester - Kazuki Nakajima gets a role with Williams

Published by Christine

Kazuki Nakajima is the son of ex-Grand Prix racer Satoru Nakajima and has got his foot in the door of F1 for himself. He has been signed up as a test driver for Williams next year, drafted in as part of the Toyota (Williams' new engine supplier) driver development programme.

Williams have a bit of a history with the elder Nakajima, as their refusal to offer him a drive back in 1987 meant the loss of their Honda engine deal. Funny how things turn full circle, eh?
