Despite the ongoing delay, Force India is not in a rush to confirm its second driver for the 2013 season, with Deputy Team Principal Bob Fernley explaining that the outfit’s shareholders will move closer to a decision after the first Barcelona test.
The team, which has already confirmed Paul di Resta, is testing former driver Adrian Sutil and Ferrari protégé Jules Bianchi at the Circuit de Catalunya this week. Although it has refuted claims of a so-called shootout, the squad will sign one of the two men.
"We're giving everyone the amount of mileage they need," Fernley explained to Sky Sports as Thursday's track action began. "We'll try and get all the information we have been collecting over to the shareholders this weekend and then it's their decision.
"We want to make sure that it's an even playing field for everybody and that, more importantly, they have got the opportunity to get used to the car. Obviously one of them will come through and we do not want to disadvantage them in any way."
Following on from di Resta's two-day stint in the VJM06 chassis, Sutil has been handed Thursday's running, while Bianchi will get another run in the car on Friday.
