> F1NEWS> Force India: Drivers to stay FORCE India has no intention of changing its 2009 driver line-up of Adrian Sutil and Giancarlo Fisichella in the middle of the season.

Obviously I’ll have to look at this for next year sooner or later.” With Force India tester Italian Tonio Liuzzi believed to have a clause in his contract for a 2010 race seat, Mallya may only have one seat to worry about for next season. But for now, at least, any imminent driver change at the team seems unlikely. The most testing of circuits Nico Rosberg looks ahead to this weekend’s Spanish GP
