  1. He will probably drive another year with ART in GP2 next year, and will hope to find something to do in 2012, or hope Massa to get dropped the year after (testing would not be really an option I suppose), or hope Ferrari find somewhere to put him in a car if he does not want to end up like all those from the RB or Renault driver programs somewhere in the world.

  2. Is he related to Lucien Bianchi?

      1. LOL!!!

        I was going to ask you how to do that, but I googled “let me google it for you” myself.

        1. good, someone is learning! :D

      2. Ha, that site is awesome, hadn’t seen that before.

    1. Yes, Lucien Bianchi is his Uncle

  3. Well he better be testing on Massa’s car.

  4. r there any one from Ferrari academy who drives in F1 now?

  5. Will he be driving for the two straight days? I think they should have given some chance to some other driver as well.
