F1 » Force India F1 likely to keep same driver line-up after all..?


Despite both test and reserve driver Paul di Resta and Williams refugee Nico Hülkenberg having been mooted as potential Force India F1 drivers in 2011, the Silverstone-based squad could very well stick with current pairing Adrian Sutil and Vitantonio Liuzzi after all. Here's why...

Calvin, while i ultimately agree, i cant think of a better unsigned driver than Sutil and with more money than liuzzi. Di Resa and Hulkenburg cant bring much money into the team either. Annoyingly for the fans and team, Liuzzi's place is pretty secure.

JoeS,

If you'd have asked me last year, I might have agreed with you. Sutil has potential, but he doesn't seem to be able to use it in any way consistently. Maybe a new team and environment may help him unlock it. The FI was a fast car, but both their drivers lacked any consistency.

I agree about the problem of di Resta and Hulkenberg having the necessary financial support. Unfortunately, this is an important part of the equation now.

Is there anything in this article that we didn't already know? Liuzzi may well have a contract in place, but after you factor in the cost of repairing all the cars he will crash in the new season it would be a false economy to keep him.

Sutil thinks he's better than he really is, won't give 100% to FIF1 as his mind is eleswhere.

Di Resta & Hulk would be the right choice. Both can grow with the team and in DR's case is a champion in waiting.

The Force is in a strange situation. money may be the driving the decisions in F1, again..

We the fans are getting the short side of the stick. I'm willing to bet their is a another Vettel, Hamilton, Rosburg or some local Indian kid sitting hoping for shot.

I can see no solution to this F1 pay to play thing. Money cannot buy talent, we the fans deserves to see the best in completion, or money and mediocrity will be the rule..
