Newly crowned A1GP champion and teenager Nico Hulkenberg will test a formula one car for the first time later in 2007.

That is the promise of the German's manager, Willi Weber, who is famous for steering the career of the most successful and highest earning grand prix driver of all time, Michael Schumacher.

Weber told the German magazine Sport Bild that he is already in contact with Renault boss Flavio Briatore about organising a test for Hulkenberg, who drove for his 'Team Germany' in the A1GP open wheel series in 2006/2007.

"After we cooperated together with regard to Michael between 1991 and 1995, Flavio and I know each other more than well," Weber is quoted as saying.

In the meantime, Hulkenberg is racing this year in the F3 Euroseries. (GMM)
