Published

The German Adrian Sutil is getting closer to being the driver who eventually becomes the team-mate of the Paul di Resta at Force India, which would mean that the set of Silverstone again align the pair of pilots who had in the 2011 season, before Nico Hulkenberg would jump to race driver.

Also Jules Bianchi listed on the second pre-season test at Barcelona. The Silverstone squad confirmed Barcelona test line-up. Regular driver Paul di Resta will drive first two days, Sutil will compete on Thursday and reserve driver Jules Bianchi will taste final day of testing.

Force India confirmed via their official twitter: “Adrian Sutil will all drive the VJM06 in BCN this week. Paul on Tues & Weds, Adrian on Thurs & Jules on Fri.”

Previously Adrian Sutil’s manager, Manfred Zimmermann, said the chance of a 2013 race seat with Force India is “intact” with just one month to go until the Melbourne season opener.

“We continue to hope, knowing that Barcelona is pretty much the last chance,” he is quoted by German news agency DPA.

Still Force India not confirmed 2013 all drivers’ line-up.
