Andy Priaulx - the next F1 brit? (updated with test times)

I would really like to see Priaulx in F1 hopefully in a couple of years. I hope his imminent F1 test with Williams goes really well.
I for one would much rather be cheering on Priaulx than Jenson "erm" Button.

I have had the chance to speak to Priaulx on a few occasions while being at BTCC rounds back in 1999 and he is a genuinely all round "nice guy". We actually sat next to his Dad by chance at an Oulton Park meet back in 1999 and he was telling us how he started out racing.

Priualx wont make it into F1 unless a team creates a car that has a roof.

He is always been the kinda guy u seem to picture racing tourers and sports cars. His Bathurst drives in the v8's have been nothing to show that he would be good in F1.

Priaulx is definitely a very talented driver in tintops, but that doesn't always convert to single seaters... anyone know what open wheel experience he has? I would think at this stage a Williams test would be no more than an interesting diversion, but who knows? If he puts in a fantastic session he could be the next great British hope... (it'd be nice to see him in an Aston at Le Mans instead though... )

Andy is a real nice bloke,he has driven in single seaters longer than tintops. British F3 is as high as he made it in singleseaters full time so far.

Since when has Bathurst been an indicator for driving talent!?

Andy is a top guy with lots of talent but F1 is probably out of the question - but who knows? He'll have a story to tell after driving that thing anyway. I worked with him at Silverstone and he is very professional and it would be great if somehow it all came about.

Great link Jase, thanks

Some good experience there, and good on Sir Frank for giving him a test.

Yes, he did race single seaters until a few years ago when he made a couple of appearences in BTCC and did very well straight away IIRC. Then a couple of great years in ETCC hs seem him humble better teams and win the cahmpionship.

I wouldn't dismiss him as a 'touring car' driver (pointless in many ways), but I doubt this is a start of a F1 career. The test is presumably just a reward and treat from BMW, who have accepted him into the family.

Why not cheer them both?

But even if the test is successful, I doubt he'd get the necessary superlicence. He's been in tin tops a bit too long. Comparisons with Kimi etc who came directly from an S/S background wouldn't work.

Anyway good luck to him I watched some of the ETCC and he was the star performer.

Andy Priaulx would get a superlicence if he complete the required minimum amount of testing to a necessary standard.

A talented driver - but my gut feeling is he'll never race in F1.

Andy did pretty well in F3, especially in the wet, although I'm not sure he's got what it takes to challenge in F1. He seems quite suited to touring cars, and should have a long and glorious career in the WTCC. If he does well in the test though, who knows?

His best hope would be to become one of Williams/Michelin's 'secret' testers.

he may be a little old for an f1 team to even consider using him for anything but testing, which is a shame because he has real talent.

I don't think there's any shame of being labeled a tintop specialist, especially as this year the winner gets to call himself a World Champion again.

The BMW test is merely a 'thank you'. Seems standard practise these days for works drivers in other series to get a day out in the company's F1 car.

The snobbery against touring car racing on here is saddening. In touring cars you do a lot more head-to-head racing and have a lot more parity of hardware (and, at the same time, variety on the technical side) than in F1.

Agreed Martin, both codes deserve respect.

However they are also both very different.
