Nakajima set to replace Wurz in Brazil

Williams will confirm later today that Kazuki Nakajima is to make his Formula One debut with them in the Brazilian Grand Prix later this month, autosport.com has learned.

The Japanese GP2 Series racer, son of former Grand Prix driver Satoru Nakajima, has tested extensively for Williams this year and has been drafted in as a replacement for the retiring Alexander Wurz.

Williams are still considering their driver options for next year, and an outing at the Brazilian Grand Prix will give the team a chance to evaluate Nakajima's abilities in a racing environment.
