GP2 champion Pantano hoping for an F1 drive

“We have to wait and see if there is any contact, see if anyone calls,” Pantano said to magazine GP Week. “If there is a good offer, I need to focus on my future. I do not want to take an opportunity just for one year I have to focus on my fuure.

“I am sure there I [the US] I can find a good seat to secure my future if there is nothing food in Formula One. I don’t want just Formula One I know I have a future so I want a good offer.”

Pantano already has some F1 experience he signed to the Jordan team in 2004 however he had a troubled season, retiring from several races and tending to qualify and finish around the back of the field.
