Andy Stevenson, Force India sporting director says that Paul di Resta and Nico Hulkenberg will “get exactly the same treatment”. And Stevenson added that We’ve never had a policy here where we have a lead driver.

Force India reorganized their 2012 line-up as consequence Adrian Sutil departure the team, Paul di Resta and Nico Hulkenberg will drive next season. Last season the German Nico Hulkenberg started his job with Force India as a reserve driver role.

Sporting director also admitted that the 2012 Force India car looked “very, very good” but agreed with technical director Andy Green that its relative competitiveness was unknown.

“We’ve never had a policy here where we have a lead driver,” Stevenson told Sky Sports News. “Both drivers get exactly the same treatment; they get exactly the same equipment. Paul will be under pressure. It’s his second year within Formula 1 as a full-time driver and it’s going to be tough for him. Nico has already proved himself to be very, very quick.”

“It’s an evolution. From what I’ve seen so far it looks very, very good but we have to get it on the track. We know what the figures are – we have confidence in the car we’ve designed, but we don’t know what the guys down the road have done. So until we get to those first tests and actually see what sort of speed other cars are carrying then it’s difficult to tell.”
