Sergio Sette Camara says he is ready for formula one.

The 20-year-old Brazilian driver, who will stay in Formula 2 next year, will also be a McLaren test driver in 2019.

He is backed by team sponsor Petrobras but insists Brazilian drivers are still "taken seriously" in F1.

"We are recognised as a country that produces good drivers, even though we do not have as strong an economy as the Europeans," Sette Camara told Brazil’s Globo.

McLaren said he will have a test and development role, but he may also be on call in case Carlos Sainz or Lando Norris cannot race.

Asked if he is ready for a grand prix, Sette Camara answered: "I believe so.

"I think you need a few days of testing to face a race weekend with a formula one car, but with some caution, I could do it.

"In the end it’s still a formula car, and the F2 car is already fast. Of course it’s one more step, but I think I would have it under control," he said.
