Pedro de la Rosa is tipped to return to Formula One action next year with Force India. The Silverstone based team, powered by Mercedes engines and supported by McLaren, has not yet confirmed either Adrian Sutil or Tonio Liuzzi.
McLaren test and reserve driver de la Rosa tested a Force India last winter, and was thought to have been first in the queue for a Campos seat for next year.
That option is now believed closed due to a lack of interest by Spanish sponsors, but Spanish radio sources Onda Cero and Radio Marca have reported that Force India is a possibility. In fact, the sources said an announcement could be imminent.
Paul di Resta meanwhile will make his Formula One debut at the young driver test at Jerez, Switzerland’s Motorsport Aktuell reports.
The Scot, who races with Mercedes in the DTM series, will reportedly drive the Mercedes-powered Force India car during the early December session. He reportedly had a seat fitting at the team’s Silverstone headquarters early this week.
