I'm not really sure if this story is a red-herring or not.

All the stories coming out of Force India was that they wanted somebody with experience and speed. So they were looking at Sutil which gave them the experience part of the equation. Now they're suddenly looking at a Rookie?

The only driver I haven't heard as having the best opportunity at Force India is Kobayashi, and in all honesty he should be at the top of the list if they're truly looking for a strong driver who is capable of qualifying well and fighting for podiums.

Kobayashi and Kovalainen should be first Choice, Sutil Senna and Bianchi afterwards. Surprised Ferrari didn't try to parachute Bianchi in with Hulkenburg at Sauber, maybe the.Mexican money spoke louder than Ferrari backing

@Richard - This is modern F1, mate. Engines earn their merit on power, not reliability. Since the start of the V8 era it's been unanimously agreed that the Merc unit is the gutsiest.

The ferrari engine deal for force india were signed under spyker. Dr Vijay preferred mercedes when he took over because the engines were manufactured close to Force India's base near silverstone (or around there). So that gave them better support.

Their new mercedes deal ends at the end of 2013.
