Force India next in signing low-profile development driver

Force India has become the next F1 team to court controversy with its signing of a 'development driver'. Lotus has faced criticism of trading credibility for money, as it unveiled first Carmen Jorda and then Adderly Fong as the newest members of the Enstone team.

Between the pair, they have contested five seasons of GP3, for a collective haul of 2 points. Taki Inoue, remembered as an average 'pay driver' in F1, remarked on his humorous Twitter profile: "It seems bank account development driver is getting popular in F1."

Now, another driver with an extremely low profile has joined the ranks of F1 development drivers -- Steven Goldstein. The top three results in a Google search refer to Goldstein the lawyer, Goldstein the masseur, and a 57-year-old Steven Goldstein who passed away last week.

But Steven Goldstein, the 31-year-old Colombian racer, has been signed up by Force India to be a development driver for the Silverstone based team in 2015, according to foreign-language media reports. In recent years, Goldstein has raced in GT sports cars, and last year drove a Lamborghini Gallardo to second place in the Italian championship. (GMM)
