Reigning Formula 3 Euro Series champion and double Macau Grand Prix winner Edoardo Mortara is closing in on a DTM drive with Audi for 2011, AUTOSPORT reports.
Mortara is among the leading candidates for a drive with the Audi works squad following its extensive "young driver" tests that took place in December. Audi is expected to reveal its DTM lineup early next month, but Mortara said he is yet to sign a deal.
"The test was positive but I still have no news from them," the 24-year-old told AUTOSPORT. "I'm pretty optimistic for the future, but for the moment I'm still without a seat for this year."
