Force India team principal Vijay Mallya insists his team is not in a rush to replace Nico Hulkenberg for next year’s Championship
Although Paul di Resta is expected to be staying on at Force India next season, the Scot is in need of a new team-mate after Hulkenberg signed with Sauber.
There are several drivers in the running for the position, including former drivers Adrian Sutil and Jaime Alguersuari as well as Force India’s current reserve driver Jules Bianchi. Marussia’s Charles Pic has also been linked to the team in recent weeks.
But for now all four driver will have to wait as Mallya is in no hurry to confirm his 2013 line-up.
“We have traditionally waited until the end of the season to confirm our line-up and I expect we will stick to this schedule,” said Mallya.
“With the state of the driver market at the moment there is no rush to make an announcement.
“We have a shortlist and will take our time to make sure we have the fastest drivers available in our cars next season.”
