    Reports suggest former Toyota driver Kamui Kobayashi is in talks with Peter Sauber

    Kobayashi in talks with Sauber



    With Virgin Racing's Tuesday announcement having seen more pieces of the 2010 driver jigsaw fitted into place, a number of spots on the grid remain vacant ahead of the upcoming season. With Mercedes' second seat generating most speculation, Finnish media suggests that ex Toyota pilot Kamui Kobayashi may have signed with Sauber.

    After making an impressive Formula 1 debut in Brazil before scoring three World Championship points in only his second Grand Prix in Abu Dhabi, Kobayashi looked to have secured a place at Toyota for next year before the Japanese manufacturer suddenly pulled out of the sport only three days after the season-ending race.

    With former team-mate Jarno Trulli now signed at Lotus alongside Heikki Kovalainen, Finnish newspaper Turun Sanomat reports that 2008-2009 GP2 Asia Series Champion Kobayashi has already signed for Hinwil's Sauber, with an announcement only to be released once the team's second driver has been confirmed.
