reserve Pedro de la Rosa
is recovering after a week of 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? Or 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?
Japanese Kamui Kobayashi
, although hugely popular and among the most recently experienced following his three years with Sauber
, might be near the bottom of the list. Whilst demonstrating the team's 2009 car on the streets of Moscow last weekend, Kobayashi - now a Ferrari sports car driver - lost control and crashed.
"The track was very slippery," he said, "and there was a marked bump at that point, which is why I hit the barrier. A shame, but I am pleased the team let me out again after a few minutes." The crash can be seen at: www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ea1oUlFpGjY
