The final details of Bruno Senna's debut formula one test, for the Japanese team Honda in November, are being discussed at Interlagos this weekend.

The German news agency SID said on Saturday the event will take place in the third week of November, in evaluation for a race seat in 2009.

Official confirmation will reportedly be forthcoming next week, after the 25-year-old Brazilian and team officials stage talks about the details, including the number of days the test will entail.

He told reporters in Brazil that no contracts have been signed.

"I hope that with this test the right people can see that I am ready for formula one," Senna said.

He is also in talks with Toro Rosso, the team co-owned by his late uncle Ayrton Senna's former McLaren teammate Gerhard Berger, but Senna seemed keenest on the Honda option.

"I believe I could learn a lot with them, very quickly," said the 2008 GP2 runner-up. "It would be the ideal start for me."

He therefore played down reports of a handsome multi-million euro offer from Berger's Toro Rosso, but did admit he is a healthily sponsored driver, with the possible backing of the Mexican telecommunications giant Telmex.
