Who Deserves the Force India Seat?

With Luiz Razia joining the Marrusia Racing Team, the final piece remaining in the puzzle is the vacancy at Force India. The team certainly does have variety of options. Jamie Alguersuari, Heikki Kovalainen, Adrian Sutil and Jules Bianchi are all available to partner Paul di Resta at the team. However after months of speculation it looks as if the team will decide between Sutil and Bianchi.

Both men bring benefits to the table. Sutil worked with the team from 2007-2011, while Bianchi on the other hand has spent a year as third driver and knows the current set-up much better than his more illustrious rival.

The team has already said they would prefer to have Bianchi as their reserve driver for another year before promoting him to their proper line-up. But with Sutil’s past run-in with the law and Force India’s desire to switch to Ferrari power for the 2014 season, you’d have to say Bianchi is a dead-cert to take the remaining seat.

Another interesting scenario that could play out is one that sees Narain Karthikeyan occupying the remaining seat. Vijay Mallya’s financial troubles are no secret, and with the technical over-haul only a year away, the team maybe forced to run a second pay driver. With Tata significantly increasing Narain’s coffers, the team may finally run an Indian driver. Pedro de la Rosa has even come out in an interview, where he goes on to describe Narain as an underrated driver. Another factor that could work for him is the fact that unlike the aforementioned drivers, he’s coming off a full season of competitive racing in Formula One.

Whichever scenario plays out, all three drivers remain viable candidates. I am certainly no fan of Karthikeyan but I do think its time he gets his chance with a competitive team. Feel free to disagree in the comments section below.
