Bianchi signs with Ferrari for the long term // There's a new French driver on the block

After just one day in the car at Jerez, Jules Bianchi has been snapped up by Ferrari in an as yet undecided position. His manager Nicholas Todt says:

His role is undefined for the moment, but from now on, he will be at Ferrari's disposal. His first Ferrari drive is obviously at this young driver test.

It's unclear how long the deal is for as well, but the aim would be for Bianchi to move up to test driver role, and I'm sure he would hope for a race seat. I make that six drivers for Ferrari now. How many will they have before the season begins?
