Bertrand Baguette rates his chances of a seat in formula one this season as “small”.
Some reports have linked the Belgian, who turned 24 on Tuesday, with the vacant cockpit at Campos that is also being courted by pay-drivers Jose Maria Lopez and Karun Chandhok.
“F1 is my goal,” the reigning World Series by Renault champion said.
Baguette tested with both Renault and Sauber in December, and told the French language dhnet.be that he wants to contest “at least one race” in 2010.
“There remains a small chance to be on the grid of the first GP,” he said. “(But) my budget is not enough.
“The sponsors want a (F1) contract before they help me, but to have a contract, you need money,” added Baguette.
He acknowledged that he may have to look outside F1 for the 2010 season.
“There are possibilities in the Superleague, IRL and GP2. Nothing is decided yet,” said Baguette.
