Bianchi looks to stay with Force India in 2013

Jules BianchiOct.13 (GMM) Reserve driver Jules Bianchi has revealed he expects to stay with the Force India team for the 2013 season.

Managed by Nicolas Todt, the Frenchman is a member of Ferrari‘s driver development ‘academy’ and this season has been the reserve and Friday driver for Mercedes-powered Force India.

Asked in Korea about his future, the 23-year-old told RMC Sport: “I am already in a good team with Force India, so the goal is to stay with them.

“I want to grow with the team and who knows (what will happen) if one of the two incumbents moves place,” he said in the Yeongam paddock.

“There are several options but the most practical is Force India,” added Bianchi.

Force India racer Nico Hulkenberg is hotly tipped to switch to Sauber for 2013.
