So who's the 3rd driver?

The media site has photos of both D'Ambrosio and Nicolas Prost.

Reserve driver (D'Ambrosio)
Third driver (Valsecchi)
Development driver (Prost)

See, they got rid of the horrible red end plates, only to add more vile red onto the wing plate, side pod and behind the T-cam, but they did cut most of the red off the rear wing end plate.

The reds much more vibrant as well isn't it? Its quite offensive to the eyes, youve got black, but then the creme (cmon, it aint gold) just ruins the car, it should just be black and gold or black and red.
