Heidfeld Confirmed as Mercedes Reserve Driver

As I mentioned last week, Nick Heidfeld has become the official Mercedes Grand Prix reserve driver. “I am very pleased to be joining Mercedes Grand Prix”, Heidfeld said. He also suggested that he would have preferred a race seat, which is completely understandable for a competitive racing driver. Nick could deputized for an injured/unwell race driver, and that could result in a race seat for Heidfeld in 2011. F1 test/reserve ‘drives’ can also mark the end of a driver’s F1 racing career, as Fisichella, Panis, Badoer, Gene, and Wurz have demonstrated. I was going to include de la Rosa, but he has had a lucky reprieve!
