I was just wondering. only 4 drivers can be used during a season by any one team. HRT used 4 last year, Ferrari the year before.
I know we’re still in testing, and pretty much anyone can drive any car right now. But seeing as Kubica and Petrov were already confirmed as the team’s 2 drivers to take part in the season proper, would having Heidfeld drive the #9 car in Melbourne (ahem, sorry, Bahrain… keep forgetting that – it’s not hard to really, is it?) class him as the 3rd driver used by Renault this season? Or does the ’4-drivers-per-season’ only start at the first race, even though Kubica had already been confirmed.
