Force India May Announce New Drivers In Wake Of McLaren Deal

Force India F1 Team may well be about to announce two new drivers in the wake of the deal with McLaren Mercedes, team boss Vijay Mallya told a news agency.

Mallya had previously claimed he would not be told who should drive for him, and McLaren said it would not be a junior team, but that looks like it was a load of rubbish!

Currently, Mallya told presses that Adrian Sutil and Giancarlo Fisichella would be driving, but this appears no longer likely.

“I haven’t gone into any details on drivers yet, it may well all change” Mallya said yesterday.

It appears likely that young gun and Mercedes DTM driver Paul di Resta may get a drive, after successful tests with the McLaren F1 Team.  Veteran Pedro de La Rosa may well be packed off to Force India, or possibly a double DTM pairing with Gary Paffett who has been after an elusive F1 seat for years.
