The latest update from the family of injured Formula One driver Jules Bianchi indicates that he is no longer in the intensive care unit at a French hospital. He is now in a rehabilitation center to begin therapy to improve his condition. Bianchi is still unconscious but is breathing on his own.
There are two approaches to hiring a Formula One driver. The first is to go with a seasoned veteran, a driver who's already seen just about anything that is likely to come up on the track or off, and knows how to deal with it. The second is to grab an aspiring rookie who's eager to show his mettle, bereft of the caution that years of experience can impart. The same goes for test drivers, but once in a while a team finds itself having to promote a tester into the race seat.
