It is now almost certain that Gerhard Berger's nephew will shortly make his Formula 1 test debut.

Widespread reports say that DTM frontrunner Lucas Auer will drive the Force India at the post-Hungarian Grand Prix young driver's test.

"As it turns out, he will get a Formula 1 test in the Force India in the young driver test," Berger, who is the DTM series boss, told Bild.

The former Ferrari and McLaren driver said that at 22 years old, Auer is more than ready for the step into F1.

"I think two years ago, he would have been burned, but now he deserves his chance. Whether he uses it is another matter," Berger told Kurier.

However, Auer said at the DTM race at the Norising at the weekend: "Nothing has been confirmed yet.

"I am in touch with a few teams," Speed Week quotes him as saying.

Auer drives in DTM for Mercedes and shares a sponsor (BWT) with Force India.
