Dimitris Papadopoulos (f1enigma) is reporting that Bianchi will be Force India’s test driver.
There’s no need for a collective sigh of relief – I doubt there was anything substantial to the reports Kobayashi would be replaced. Kobayashi never dodged a bullet because there never was a bullet in the first place.
@keith-collantine – It was probably just someone trying to score an “exclusive”. Or maybe they were trying to get one back on Peter Sauber for some perceived wrongdoing; I saw a tabloid do just that yesterday.
