Jules Bianchi: Linked with Force India

Jules Bianchi: Linked with Force India

Jules Bianchi is one of those heading the queue to land a Force India drive, according to his manager.

The former Ferrari Driver Academy man served as Force India's test and reserve drive last season, taking part in nine Friday practice sessions.

The Silverstone outfit are yet to decide who will partner Paul di Resta next season with Adrian Sutil, Jaime Alguersuari and Bianchi the favourites.

Nicolas Todt, Bianchi's manager, believes his man is in with a good shot of securing a race-seat.

"The decision is in the hands of two or three people at the Force India F1 team," Todt told RMC Sport. "I think Jules has a real chance but nothing is done. As of today I do not think anyone has signed.

"There are many drivers knocking on the door at Force India. Jules is one of those in contention and the aim is to get a race seat for 2013."
