Force India confirms test line-up

Jules Bianchi, Luiz Razia and Rodolfo Gonzalez to test for Force India at Magny-Cours this week
Force India has confirmed that it will run three drivers during the upcoming F1 Young Driver Test at Magny-Cours.

Test driver Jules Bianchi will be joined by GP2 racers Luiz Razia and Rodolfo Gonzalez – both of whom have tested F1 machinery in the past.

Razia will be at the wheel of the VJM05 for the first day of the test tomorrow [Tuesday] before Bianchi then takes over for Wednesday.

Gonzalez will then get his opportunity to run at the French circuit when the test draws to a close on Thursday.

“The young driver test is a chance to evaluate promising racers from the junior ranks,” team boss Vijay Mallya said. “It's something we take very seriously and we have always tried to give young drivers time in the car whenever possible.

“We know Jules very well from his work during Friday practice sessions and it will be valuable for him to spend a full day in the car. Luiz and Rodolfo are both established GP2 racers and I look forward to seeing how they get on.”

Mercedes and Ferrari will also test at the former home of the French GP this week.
