Can anyone explain how this isn't a sign of some rather large problems?

Senna or Petrov...I think Petrov now that he is gone from Caterham, that might be why Force India waited so long, now that Van Der Garde is confirmed at Caterham and Petrov is out, he can jump over to Force India with his cash, I think he brings more money than Bruno and Petrov isn't a bad driver.

Looks like a fake to me. Captured 3s after posting? And the twitter user name looks different on the top tweet compared to the one below it. You would expect them to look identical.

The image has been resized. They're expected to look different, actually. If they did look identical, then we'd know it was shopped.

Would like to see Petrov in a Force India but still think Ferrari will have the say in the seat.

What has Ferrari got to do with the price of eggs at Force India?

Force India could be switching to Ferrari engines to 2014. Jules Bianchi is a Ferrari academy driver who has been linked with a drive to Force India.

Which to me says he will be there in 2014, not this year? ps, watching the video with Scarbs, the TD is saying they optimised the high chassis but the nose is so low?

They added a chin to the nose, going back to their 2010/11 nose concepts, but the chassis itself sits higher at the top and underside then what the 2012 model did. Basically running closer to what the regs allow.
Thats what Andy Stevens is meaning about optimising the high chassis.
The chin on the nose is all about directing the air flow in a manner that works well with their aero concept.

Bianchi is going to test on Friday, so chances are he's gone ahead of Sutil in the fight for that second seat.

A very good test and development driver who has been employed to do as such for various manufacturers for years.

He's Force India's simulator tester/developer, so they are putting him in the car to verify the data their simulator is producing. Pretty sensible.

That's who the f*** he is.

Wasn't he suppose to get a drive for USF1 if they got into Formula One?

Yeah, he had 'signed'. But so did several others.;) I still can't work out how Peter Windsor was allowed back in the paddock....

James has been around the F1 paddock for years, working mainly with BAR/Honda
He's also been involved with the Lotus GT project working with the Evora and was racing the car at Lemans in previous years.

He's a solid good choice to have involved with the development team and am really pleased to see him part of that.

Directly addressing the thread title here - you all need to understand Vijay The Bling King doesn't have a mere 'Launch', he has a fully fledged Gin Palace, AKA yacht.

what is the current situation regarding 2nd driver?

this reminds me of 2008 when they delayed signing of 2nd driver untill very late, and then signed fisichella. So can we expect another relatively high profile driver again?
