Valles to issue Force India ‘ultimatum’

Thu, 15 November 2007, 06:10

Spanish youngster Adrian Valles plans to issue an ultimatum to Force India bosses on Thursday, according to the local news agency EFE.

It is reported that this year’s occasional Spyker test driver, and his sponsors, are upset to have been left out of serious consideration so far for a race seat in 2008.

He is scheduled to meet with team chiefs on Thursday, during which he intends to demand an official role for 2008 or go on the market for a drive elsewhere.

“We are going to talk to other teams as well,” Valles said, also refusing to rule out returning to GP2.

‘EFE’ said Valles is angry about a lack of support by Spyker, Force India’s Dutch-owned predecessor, in 2007.

“Then they said Roldan (Rodriguez) is going to be their official driver when this is not true, and it hurt me a lot.

“It is a pity that after working so hard, I have not been given even half the opportunity of some others,” he added.
