A driver from the African republic Angola has been invited by the Williams team to make his formula one test debut.

The Angolan sports newspaper Jornal dos Desportos said 26-year-old Ricardo Teixeira could appear at the wheel of the famous British team's car in January.

The newspaper said the invitation came after Teixeira performed strongly for the Northamptonshire based Ultimate F3 team, which earlier this year was linked with trying to break into formula one.

Like Ultimate, Teixeira runs with branding by Sonangol, a partially state-owned Angolan oil company.
