Bianchi to test Force India car on Friday

Published on 05 Feb 2013 08:14
Jules Bianchi has emerged as the hot favourite to complete the 2013 grid. The team's reserve driver last year, he has been called up to test the new Force India at Jerez this week.

As Paul di Resta recently launched the VJM06 alone at Silverstone, team officials confirmed that Frenchman Bianchi, 23, is a leading candidate to be the Scot's teammate.

And, referring to Ferrari's development 'academy' driver, that team's boss Stefano Domenicali said earlier this month: "We are currently trying to find him a role in formula one and when we have some news, we will let you know."

Force India has confirmed reports Bianchi will drive the VJM06 at Jerez on Friday.

"Jules will be able to provide the team's engineers with further comparison feedback between last year's car and the VJM06," said the Silverstone based team. (GMM)
