A list of candidates to replace Timo Glock as BMW-Sauber’s primary tester is beginning to emerge.

25-year-old German Glock, the newly crowned GP2 champion, is expected to shortly be signed in a racing role for one of formula one’s Toyota powered teams.

Upon imminent confirmation of Glock’s plans, BMW motor sport director Mario Theissen is expected to quickly organise a new driver ahead of the upcoming post and pre-season tests.

According to Auto Motor und Sport, reigning A1GP title winner Nico Hulkenberg – the 20-year-old who is looked after by Michael Schumacher’s manager Willi Weber – is in the running for the reserve role.

Another young German being mentioned for the drive is Christian Vietoris, as are Estonian rookie Marko Asmer and Ulsterman Adam Carroll, who won two races in GP2 this year.
