With his new title as European F3000 champion, Nicolas Prost has targeted a formula one test for Ferrari.

Prost, the 27-year-old son of the former quadruple world champion and team owner Alain Prost, secured the crown at the Magione circuit in Italy.

He started his career late, at the age of 22, but has since collected experience in junior single seaters, at Le Mans, and in the A1 series driving for France.

Prost said: "I hope this title can help me in the future and I would like to do a test with Ferrari."

His father Alain, who had a tumultuous Ferrari tenure in 1990 and 1991, acknowledged that Nicolas' "dream" is a Ferrari test "and we'll see what we can do".

"To get a seat at 27 certainly isn't easy," he added.
