1 Mins read

Paul di Resta, the 2010 DTM champion and current Force India reserve driver, is poised to be promoted into a race seat with the Formula One team, according  to a BBC report.

It is understood that the 24-year-old will partner Adrian Sutil although Force India are still to conclude negotiations with Tonio Liuzzi, who has a contract with the team for 2011.

The BBC also report that former Williams driver Nico Hulkenberg is expected to join the team as their third driver.

If Di Resta does get the race seat he will become the third British driver on the 24-car grid. Force India are expected to announce their driver selection before winter testing begins on 1st February. They are the only team not to have named any of their line-up for the new season.
