Ferrari reserve Pedro de la Rosa is recovering after a week suffering with flu, the Spaniard admitted on Twitter.

“I think I can see the light,” the Spaniard told his quarter of a million followers.

But de la Rosa’s illness has triggered a round of speculation about who is second in line for a Ferrari race seat, should Fernando Alonso or Felipe Massa be unable to drive in Hungary.

Is it Jules Bianchi, the leading Ferrari ‘academy’ driver, who if he stepped up to the main team would then leave Marussia needing to fill a seat?

It could also be test driver Marc Gene, who like de la Rosa attends the races? Or 26-year-old Italian Davide Rigon, who tested Ferrari’s 2013 car at Silverstone last week? (GMM)
