As P1Mag reported roughly two months ago, Paul di Resta had been in pole position for the race seat at Force India, courtesy of a deal struck between the team and its engine supplier Mercedes-Benz, on who’s salary list the Scotsman had been the last couple of seasons. Adrian Sutil, also a know quantity when his options Renault and Sauber had vanished, was also confirmed. To see Nico Hülkenberg as third driver is somewhat of a disappointment. The young German rising star was skipped by Williams F1 in a less than stylish fashion after the final round of the 2010 season in favour of Venezuelan petro-dollars and failed to find a – well deserved – race seat for 2011.
