The missing name in Honda testing

Honda has announced that GP2 drivers Mike Conway, Luca Filippi and Andreas Zuber will drive at the team's first winter test in Barcelona next month. The three are all being looked at to see if they have longtime F1 potential. The interesting thing is that the team will not be testing with Christian Klien and we hear that the Austrian's days with the team have now come to an end and he is hoping to get back into racing with the Force India team. The team's testing roster for mid-November has changed quite a lot in recent days but it is still expected that we will see Ralf Schumacher and Tonio Liuzzi in action. Jarno Trulli is more doubtful but there remain some questions about his future at Toyota. The fact that Toyota has yet to confirm Timo Glock is also interesting as this suggests that there are some problems with the deal. We hear that Glock wants a short-term deal because BMW would like to have him back, while Toyota want to nail Timo in to a deal for three years.
