Bianchi, Rossiter earn Force India test

Jules Bianchi and James Rossiter to test with Force India at Jerez alongside Paul di Resta
Sahara Force India has confirmed that it will run both Jules Bianchi and James Rossiter during the first test of the F1 season at Jerez this week.

The pair will both get time behind the wheel of the new VJM06 during the four-day test alongside Paul di Resta, who is the only driver currently signed up to a race seat for 2013.

Di Resta will drive the car all day on Tuesday as well as on Wednesday morning and Thursday afternoon, with his time in the car being split by Rossiter's outing on Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning – which the team said would give the Briton the 'chance to benchmark the VJM06 against the team's simulator model and progress the simulator development programme'.

Bianchi, who is one of the drivers being tipped to earn a race seat for 2013, will then be in action on the final day on Friday.

“Having spent 2012 as the team's third driver, Jules will be able to provide the team's engineers with further comparison feedback between last year's car and the VJM06,” a statement from the team read.
