Narain Karthikeyan’s hopes of winning a 2006 seat with Williams appear to have grown. Having made his test debut with the team last Wednesday, the Indian driver has now been called back for another two outings at Jerez.

Karthikeyan, who outpaced Williams’ 2006 race driver Nico Rosberg last week, will get back behind the wheel of the FW27B on Wednesday and Friday as part of the team’s final test of 2005.

Williams will field Rosberg and Mark Webber as their 2006 race drivers, but have yet to confirm an official tester. Karthikeyan remains in the market for a seat having lost his Jordan drive earlier this year at the end of his debut season.
