    And both have had a fair crack of the whip in a competitive car.

    It was a Lotus/Caterham joke that you clearly got immediately.

    If Grosjean is out next race(Is that the case?) then it has to be D'ambrosio and personally I'm massively excited about it. Always thougth Jerome didn't get a fair shake of the stick and a good drive in a good car just around contract time won't do him any harm at all.

    D'ambrosio to fill the one year gap at Ferrari anyone? ;)

    So according to this http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/102202 the likelyhood of Jerome getting the drive next weekend is 'very high' and as he's been the reserve driver all season, drove the car at the test and has been doing simulator work it'll be blooming stupid if its not him as its just one race.

    As a tribute to our favourite driver custard joke I have not only changed my avatar but I shall be bringing you Jerome news, facts and updates all week as i'm officially declaring this week Jerome D'ambrosio week!

    RasputinLives - Great! If Maldonado gets a similar punishment will we get Valteri Bottas week, fortnight or just year? LOL

    teabagyokel - no for Bottas getting the drive I'm planning a parade with 40 trombones, elephants and clowns to go past the Williams factory. Bruno Senna will be one of the clowns obviously.

    Jerome D'ambrosio fact number one - Jerome is actually of Italian decent so hopefully the Tiffosi will give him a good cheer as he's the nearest they have to a home driver.

    @Rasputin Lives - I hope Maldonado won't be driving one of the elephants. That could be carnage.

    A good yardstick to measure JdA against might be Seb Vettel at the 2007 USGP - teams in similar states I feel.

    I think a steady top ten finish and he'll have done the car and himself justice.

    We're being premature though. Knowing the stupidity of F1 we'll see news tomorrow that they've given a one race deal to Jarno Trulli or something

    Yeah and I heard Alguersauri threw his name into the hat on commentary as well.

    Really though whats the point in having a reserve driver if you don't use him as a reserve? if it was for the rest of the season I could see but its one Grand Prix - put the guy in who knows the car! Simple.

    Isn't Bouillier D'ambrosio's manager? If so it's pretty much a done deal imo. Get your guy experience + a chance to show what he can do and increase his chances of a drive for next season. Plus he knows the car as mentioned.

    D'ambrosio might seem an obvious option, but I imagine there'll be other drivers willing to pay to get in that seat and Lotus might want a more experienced driver who will pick up points incident free.

    I can't see how Johnny rent a driver, however many grand prix he's done, is going to be a more reliable option than a guy who has been part of the team all season, done endless simulator work and most importantly driven the car. Not for one race anyway. I may be bias but Jerome isn't a rookie either with 19 grand prixs to his name.
