Renault development driver hopes to be in a F1 car in 'six months to a year'

Carmen Jorda has admitted her dream of actually driving a Formula One car has been put on the backburner for now.
Amid some controversy about the former GP3 driver's credentials, the 27-year-old Spaniard was signed this year by Renault as development driver, and has been travelling the calendar with the Enstone team.

Asked to assess her 2015 so far, she told the Spanish sports daily Marca, "It's my first season and I'm happy with how far I have come. But my dream to test the car has not happened because of some problems with the team. Yet I know that my time will come and so I have been focused on working in the simulator and on my physical preparation."
She admitted not actually driving yet is a setback, but is happy she is carrying the baton for female drivers all over the world who dream of a career at the top of racing.
"I am satisfied," she said, "because it's not as though you arrive and that's it. Everything is a process with ups and downs, like now with the team problems that have not allowed me to do as was planned."
When asked about the progress of the Renault buyout, Jorda answered: "I am very focused on my work, which I do every day with the engineers. I also know that our management will do their best for the team, but it (the buyout) is likely to happen.
"In the end, a F1 team is a business and if the company has financial problems that of course affects everyone. And yet in Japan we had both drivers in the points, showing that we have a very good technical team despite the difficulties."
Asked, then, where she sees herself in five years, Jorda answered, "My sole focus is on testing the car in six months or a year. It's the only thing in my mind."

Many of the dreams have seen in the night. We have to try to make the grate dream in to the realistic approach. It means that the first human being try to prove his self as well. It will be the first virgin of the internet as well.

I am very interested in all the information written on this page, for that I can only say thank you to all those I've read on this page.
