Force India VJM03 nose detail badge logo Formula One Testing, Day 1, Barcelona, Spain, Friday 18 February 2011.Nov.7 (GMM) Swiss newspaper Blick has tipped Force India to announce Paul di Resta’s teammate for the 2012 season today (Wednesday).

Veteran journalist Roger Benoit said that the Silverstone based team has weighed up paying drivers including Adrian Sutil and Bruno Senna, or an essentially unsponsored talent like Sebastien Buemi.

“With five million [Euros], I would be there immediately,” Swiss national Buemi, currently Red Bull‘s reserve driver, said. “But I’m still optimistic.”

Also still in doubt as Nico Hulkenberg’s 2013 teammate at Sauber, are candidates Esteban Gutierrez and the impressive new Renault World Series champion Robin Frijns, a 21-year-old Dutchman, who tested the C31 this week in Abu Dhabi.
