'Checa confirmed at Force India

Although not overly surprising, especially since I've been expecting this to happen for awhile - largely due to something called the Mexican Grand Prix, now slated for 2015, nevertheless it's great news to hear that 'Checa, aka Sergio Perez will indeed be upon the F1 grid next year and beyond, having been announced as thee 'Hulkster's (Nico Hulkenberg) team-mate.

Thus, both of this year's Force India drivers are now searching for rides with Paul di Resta's future looking the bleakish in regards to F1 drives for '14 while 'Yo Adrian (Sutil) looks to have the inside track upon one of Sauber's seats with NO word on where Esteban Gutierrez  will pop-up at? Although I'd like to see him swap seats with "Guido-the-Dutchman" (Giedo van der Garde next year leaving the scramble for "Pay-drivers" at the back end of the grid, i.e.; Marussia and Caterham - where they belong; YOUCH!

As there seems to be the inevitable 'Scrum occurring over Van der Garde's and Max Chilton's access to multi-million sums, while I'd not be surprised to see Sweden's Marcus Eriksson land on the grid too, as unfortunately I think KOVY's (Heikki Kovalainen) time as a Formula 1 racing driver has passed by...

And rumours abound over where Di Resta  will ultimately wind-up, from Indy Cars to DTM and possibly places  in-between, including a possible "Simulator Jockey" role with Mercedes GP? As I'd guess that DTM is his most likely landing spot, but we'll see - as the Scotsman is currently tied-up in litigation regarding his former F1 manager, some chap named Anthony Hamilton. (Yep, Lewis's father...)
