Despite the number of drivers vying for the two race seats, Force India could be set to reveal the driver line-up for their maiden season in Formula 1 as early as the first week of December.

Team owner Vijay Mallya is to address Motor Sport Business Forum in Monaco on December 5th, where he will be attempting to promote India as a burgeoning market for Formula 1 following the announcement the nation is set to host a grand prix in 2010.

In addition though, Mallya hinted to Asian Age newspaper that it makes sense from a 'business point of view' to reveal detailed plans of their future in Formula 1, including who will drive for the team in 2008.

"From a business point of view, Monaco in early December is therefore the ideal place and time to introduce the Force India F1 concept to the great and good of the global motor sport industry," he said.

Although he has been linked to a seat with McLaren, Adrian Sutil is set to honour his contract in 2008 with the team, leaving several drivers battling for the place alongside him.

Among those, Christian Klien and Vitantonio Liuzzi have already tested for the team, while former Toyota reserve driver Franck Montagny is set to drive the car at Jerez. Toyota and Renault refugees Ralf Schumacher and Giancarlo Fisichella have also been linked with the seat, as well as Indian driver Narain Karthikeyan.
