Bianchi has to be the lead candidate alongside di Resta at Sahara FIF1.

Quote:
Jules Bianchi and James Rossiter will drive for Force India at the first pre-season test of 2013 in Jerez this week, the team has confirmed. 23-year-old Bianchi was the team’s reserve driver in 2012 and took part in nine Friday practice sessions.

Force India say that the Frenchman, who is believed to be in contention for the Silverstone-based squad’s second race seat, will assist Paul di Resta in providing the team’s engineers with further feedback between last year’s car and the new VJM06.

Rossiter, 29, has previous Formula One testing experience with Honda and Super Aguri and will be given a run in the new car to help with his role driving the team’s simulator.

Di Resta gave the VJM06 a brief shakedown following the car’s launch at Silverstone last week and will be in the driving seat for the first day of testing on Tuesday. Rossiter will take over on Wednesday afternoon before handing the car back to the Scot on Thursday afternoon. Bianchi’s first run in the VJM06 will be on Friday.

so with the sauber that makes 6 silver cars in the field?

From a color perspective:

We have the RBRs and STRs looking alike from the distance, the Ferrari and the Marussias. I guess the only unique teams left are Lotus, Force India, Williams and Caterham.

I'm glad they changed the tire side wall colours this year. Last year that silver and white were almost impossible to tell apart, much clearer this year to instantly know what is on.

Force India is now the only team who has yet to announce their full driver lineup.

http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/105438

Quote:
Luiz Razia has secured the Marussia Formula 1 seat left vacant by Timo Glock's pre-season departure from the team.

Brazilian 23-year-old Razia joins fellow GP2 graduate Max Chilton in an all-rookie line-up at the squad.

Razia will drive the new Marussia in Wednesday's Jerez test session, although the team will start the day late following Chilton's crash due to suspension failure on Tuesday.

"The past two seasons in GP2 have been all about proving that I have what it takes and that I'm ready," said Razia.

"This coming season will be all about rewarding the faith the team have shown in me.

"This is an important year for the Marussia F1 team in terms of maintaining the momentum from a very positive 2012 season. I look forward to making a valuable contribution to that."

Razia became a GP2 title contender last year in his fourth season in the series, eventually finishing runner-up to Davide Valsecchi.

Team boss John Booth said he had always expected Razia to blossom after initially hiring him as reserve driver for the then Virgin branded F1 team in 2010.

"We had every expectation that he would progress to the extent that he has," said Booth.

"He is a very quick and tenacious driver who battled hard to the runner-up spot last year.

"Together with Max, we are fielding a young but incredibly ambitious pairing and we look forward to seeing what they can achieve."

Marussia's announcement means that the only vacancy remaining on the 2013 F1 grid is the second Force India seat.

In addition to his 2010 run with Virgin/Marussia (pictured), Razia has also tested F1 cars with Toro Rosso, Force India and Caterham.
