Asmer and Hulkenberg in running for third BMW seat

With BMW having let both Sebastian Vettel and Timo Glock go to other F1 teams - for the moment at least - the team is looking for a new third driver and there is speculation that this could be British Formula 3 racer Marko Asmer or Germany's Nico Hulkenberg. There is also vague talk of Robert Doornbos. BMW says that it is planning to run two or three drivers in a test at Jerez in December to decide on who will get the job. Being a third driver may not seem like a glamorous job but it certainly did Sebastian Vettel no harm when he stood in for Robert Kubica at Indianapolis last summer. He ended the year with a contract to race for Scuderia Toro Rosso in 2008.
