sacher. bianchi is still a ferrari junior driver, so i guess that an "arrangement " was made, similar to ricciardos with hrt.

and as for third ferari driver. this is to be rigon. (according to other sites)

He was remarkably good in F3. He has been strangely erratic in GP2, it's true, but he keeps showing glimpses of what he might achieve.

I don't know what his problems are but I think its fair to say that he has considerable talent. If I were a team boss I'd be keeping an eye on him.

Bianchi will be making Vijay pay attention to him during friday practice. He's not there as a token reserve driver. He was beating everybody he was testing at ferrari with, and Sergio Perez was in the mix.

Good news for Bianchi. That Force India reserve role is probably the most coveted testing spot on the grid. In as many years, three drivers have been promoted to the grid. Liuzzi, Di Resta, and now Hulkenburg. Will Bianchi be the next in line?

That was the seat that was the most interesting to me after Williams was done. I was hoping for D'Ambrosio or Alguersuari to get that seat... But Bianchi? Yeah I'm cool with that too.
