With the majority of F1 teams gearing up to unveil their new cars, all but two have confirmed their drivers for the upcoming season. The only seats still up for grabs are with Force India and Super Aguri, and while the former was expected to confirm its drivers before the end of the year, that date has now been pushed off until January 11.

Adrian Sutil is all but completely confirmed to take one of the seats at the team formerly known as Spyker and before that as Jordan since its founding in 1991. But a number of drivers remain hopeful to take the second seat, including Renault refugee Giancarlo Fisichella, former Toro Rosso driver Vitantonio Liuzzi, former Jaguar/Red Bull/Honda pilot Christian Klien and Roldán Rodríguez, currently slated as Force India's test driver. Veteran racer Ralf Schumacher, as we previously reported, tested for the seat, but previous reports that the German driver would have to sit out the 2008 season have now been confirmed.

Once Force India confirms its drivers in two weeks, only Super Aguri, recently confirmed by Honda for another season, will be left to announce its roster. Takuma Sato is expected to take one seat and the second remains a wild card likely to be contested by whoever doesn't get the second Force India seat.

      According to Super Aguri, Antony Davidson is remaining at Super Aguri next season. This is from the MD, Daniel Audetto: source(http://www.itv-f1.com/News_Article.aspx?PO_ID=41527&PO=41527)

      well thats a nice story with a picture of jarno trulli...too bad the story isnt really about him...autoblog needs to watch f1 instead of just reporting f1 news three weeks after it happens...

      there ARE pictures of the new force india cars as well as the super aguri cars...either of which would have been much better for a story about force india and super aguri...how about reporting on the lost statue of hill that was found, after all its been on the bbc f1 page for about 2 weeks, should be about time for it to appear here

      AKA Midland F1 Racing & AKA Spyker MF1 Racing.

      They must have spent more money on changing all the signs and stationary then on the cars.
