Paffett holds on to F1 dream

Gary Paffett will probably be defending his DTM championship next year for Mercedes-Benz but he still wants to be an F1 driver and is looking forward to a run in a McLaren-Mercedes as a reward for his work in DTM. The 24-year-old tested for McLaren in 2002 and 2003 but was unable to find a race seat and so switched to DTM.

Lewis Hamilton, the Eurocup Formula 3 champion is also expected to be seen testing for McLaren at some point this winter.
