Daniel Juncadella is hoping Williams' switch to Mercedes engines could pave his road into Formula One next season.
The 22-year-old is currently competing in the DTM series with Mercedes where he is 11th in the Championship with four rounds to go.
The Spaniard, though, is dreaming of a future in Formula One after being given the opportunity to drive a Williams FW35 during July's Young Driver Test.
And Juncadella is hoping that Williams' new link to Mercedes, who will be their 2014 engine supplier, will strengthen his chances of securing a F1 drive.
"We'll see what happens in the future," he told Russia's Championat website.
"Next year, Williams and Mercedes will have the same engine so they'll be closely related.
"Mercedes can send its young and inexperienced drivers to a team it is connected with, where the driver has the opportunity to show his potential.
"There is a good chance that, in a few years, I can be the main driver for Williams, [but] we'll see."
However, should his bid to enter F1 prove unsuccessful, Juncadella says he's like to remain in DTM.
"I first need to finish the season and then we'll see," he said. "I think I'm doing a pretty good job and it would be nice to spend another year in DTM."
