New GP2 champion Davide Valsecchi is hoping his crown is the ticket to formula one. Every single past GP2 champion - Nico Rosberg, Lewis Hamilton, Timo Glock, Giorgio Pantano, Nico Hulkenberg, Pastor Maldonado and Romain Grosjean - has raced in F1.

25-year-old Italian Valsecchi, who secured the title by 25 points over Luiz Razia at the Singapore season finale last weekend, hopes the trend continues. He said his immediate goal is to find a seat for F1's final young drivers test for 2012, in Abu Dhabi in November.

And asked what the next target will be, Valsecchi answered: "I don't know, but in Italy they always say there is no Italian driver in formula one, but before now who deserved it? I really hope to have the chance, because at the moment we are strong enough to use it, so I really hope I will have a chance, and that I can show that I deserve to be there. I would sign right now," he laughed. "Next week, if you were going to Japan, I would come with you." (GMM)
