Da Matta to test for Toyota
After an abortive career in Formula 3 and Formula 3000 he decided to go to America in 1997 and won the Indy Lights series in 1998 with Tasman Motorsport. He then moved into CART with the Toyota-supplied Arciero Wells.
He has retained close links with Toyota for the last three years and so his major hope of getting to F1 is with the German-based team as at 29 he is now too old to get into F1 and work his way up.
