Force India will analyse three driver’s performance



Aug.13 – Force India’s Chief Operating Officer Otmar Szafnauer, says that having three drivers is a big problem, details that the extra fight is helpful for the team. Third driver Nico Hülkenberg has been tipped to land a full-time seat at the Force India, but Adrian Sutil and British Paul di Resta have both proved strong pace in 2011.

“That’s a luxury problem,” Otmar Szafnauer told Auto Motor und Sport. “Shall we toss a coin? At the end of the year we will analyse the three drivers and then make our decision.”

Otmar Szafnauer went on to speak about the German Nico Hülkenberg’s Friday practice trip, admitting that if the team had to fight with a rival at the end of the season, they could give their permanent drivers the maximum amount of track time available. – (Having three drivers) can be a disadvantage under certain circumstances. If it was at the end of the season and we were fighting with Renault for fifth place and we felt that this was a disadvantage, then we would have to come up with something.” He added

Force India’s COO added that Hülkenberg has optimistically influenced both Sutil and di Resta this season:

“If one of the three was clearly slower, the pressure would have a negative effect. This is how the internal competition makes all three even better.”
