Buemi waiting on Force India decision

Sebastien Buemi hopes to secure an F1 return with Force India for 2013
Sebastien Buemi has revealed that he is one of the drivers in contention to secure a drive with Force India following the departure of Nico Hulkenberg for the 2013 season.

Hulkenberg will switch to Sauber next year in a move that opens up a vacancy with the Silverstone-based team, which is expected to retain Paul di Resta for another year.

Test driver Jules Bianchi and former Sauber man Kamui Kobayashi are amongst those said to be in contention for the drive while former Toro Rosso man Buemi has also revealed he is in the mix.

Despite having been offered an extended deal to remain as test driver with Red Bull, Buemi also revealed that he is watching the situation at Lotus, where Romain Grosjean has yet to be confirmed for another season.

“I am waiting for Force India's answer,” he told Blick, “and everything doesn't seem clear at Lotus. Luckily for me, most teams have not forgotten about me. There's no more I can do."

Nov.29 (GMM) Kamui Kobayashi has entered the frame as a potential replacement for Romain Grosjean at Lotus, Finland's Turun Sanomat newspaper reports. You can read on ( newsonf1 ). I can put full web address. Now Kamui Kobayashi or Heikki Kovalainen will be replaced Romain Grojean if Lotus finally decided to drop Romain Grojean for 2013. I believe it will decide on what Lotus's French sponsor Total say. I believe Kobayashi at Lotus will be fantastic.
