Paul di Resta has been linked to a race seat at Force India
Paul di Resta is expected to have a meeting with Force India this week to discuss his role with the team for 2011.
The new DTM champion worked with the Silverstone based outfit’s reserve and Friday driver in 2010, and is a contender for a race seat next year. But also the ousted Williams rookie Nico Hulkenberg is in running for the seat, with team owner’s fellow countryman Karun Chandhok getting the rumors limelight fr the same seat, while Adrian Sutil is expected to be retained, and Vitantonio Liuzzi also has a firm contract for 2011.
Di Resta’s manager, Anthony Hamilton, father of Lewis Hamilton, is confident:
"There hasn't been one bit of negative information from the
team about Paul. He has done a great job, the team love him."
"He's a champion and a leader. "
"Nothing has changed; he is still a contender for a race
seat. We are very positive."
It is believed Sutil will have one seat in 2011, while the other will be occupied by either di Resta or German Hulkenberg. Otherwise, it may be Karun Chandhok, after Liuzzi’s contract is bought out.
