Veteran Italian speed merchant Jarno Trulli and Japan's Takuma Sato as well as Malaysia's own Fairuz Fauzy are likely to be in the scheme of things for the 1Malaysia F1 team, oopss sorry, Lotus FI team.
Sato, Japan's best known F1 product, is job-hunting since his Honda-backed Aguri team folded in April 2008.
He does not fancy a reserve role, so the Japanese could well be starting on the grid alongside Trulli. Fairuz? Test driver perhaps?
