Sutil, Bianchi get Force India test outings
18 February 2013 – Adrian Sutil and Jules Bianchi will both test the Force India VJM06 at the Circuit de Catalunya this week, with the pair fighting for the vacancy alongside Paul di Resta. At present, only the Scot has been named as a race driver at the outfit.
Sutil, who contested four seasons with the team from 2008-2011 before being replaced, recently had his seat-fitting and will get behind the wheel on Thursday. Bianchi, a Ferrari protege and long-time favourite to seal the drive, will be in the cockpit on Friday. The confirmed di Resta is due to drive on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Bianchi enjoyed a test outing for Force India at the opening Jerez gathering earlier this month, posting the second quickest time behind Kimi Räikkönen on the final day.
