I predicted van der Garde to get an F1 drive 3 months ago
Van der Garde is almost certain to graduate to F1 next year
Back in November I listed several drivers to reach F1 this year
Went for Razia, Gutierrez, Chilton, Bianchi, Bird, van der Garde & Bottas.
I feel all of these drivers have a realistic chance to progress to F1 based on their experience, talent and backing.
Of these drivers, 4 (Gutierrez, Chilton, van der Garde & Bottas) have a confirmed seat for 2013, with a further 2 (Razia & Bianchi) likely to be racing in F1 this year too
