Alexander Rossi is on standby to take the place of the injured Jules Bianchi in this weekend’s Russian Grand Prix.
The FIA entry list for the race confirmed the team had nominated Rossi to replace Bianchi, who was badly injured in Sunday’s Japanese Grand Prix.
However the team are yet to confirm their plans for participation in this weekend’s race.
Rossi is yet to start a race in Formula One. He was announced as a replacement for Max Chilton in the Belgian Grand Prix earlier this year, but a late change saw Chilton retain his usual seat after Rossi took his place in the first practice session.
