Force India team Principal Vijay Mallya says that they will keep Paul Di Resta and Nico Hulkenberg for 2013 Formula 1 season.
Three top teams still find the drivers for next season, the opening available in Ferrari, McLaren, and Mercedes. Force India will confirm their deal if they not make any move on other teams for 2013.
“I have confirmed to both my drivers that I want to retain them, and that’s it,” Vijay Mallya told SPEED.com.
“I will do whatever I have to do to retain my drivers. I’ve not been approached by anybody, contrary to all the speculation. The fact that their names are mentioned only shows that my trust and faith in them is not misplaced.”
The German Hulkenberg says that it was pleasing movement talk about the links with top teams, it showed they are done something right with Force India.
“It’s a positive thing if you get linked to those teams. That shows that we’ve done something right,” he told SPEED.com.
“But you shouldn’t get too carried away. We’re here to race and we have seven races to go, and the focus must be on maximizing our performance.
“I think it’s quite typical for this time of year, a lot of rumors and speculation, and I think we all know how it works. We just sit back, relax and maybe laugh about it.”
