|Bianchi impressed during young driver tests in 2009, '10 and '11|
The Frenchman, 22 has been part of Ferrari's young driver development program since 2009 having been the first member. He will stay part of the initative but will no longer be a feature in Ferrari's F1 team meaning their number of drivers appears to have now decreased to 6. (Alonso, Massa, Fisichella, Gene, Rigon & Bertolini).
|Bigger role for Rigon in 2012|
Meanwhile, Marc Gene completed important simulator work for the team in Maranello today whilst Giancarlo Fisichella and Andrea Bertolini are over in America competiong in the Rolex 24 at Daytona. All the drivers (besides Bianchi who will be at Silverstone for the Force India Launch) will be back together on the 3rd of February for the launch of Ferrari's new F1 challenger in Maranello.
