McLaren protege returning to Britain in 2002

GARY PAFFETT, a McLaren test driver and something of a protege for the team, raced in German Formula 3 last season, and while he did not win many races he was nonetheless right up there with the frontrunning teams. Paffett is now tipped to be planning to return to Britain in 2002 and is believed to be talking to the Valiant and Motaworld teams. Valiant will be run by Bruce Jenkins, the man who guided many young drivers to success while running Paul Stewart Racing.

Another McLaren protege Lewis Hamilton will make his car racing debut this year, driving for Manor Motorsport in the British Formula Renault series.
