Di Resta does not care who his 2013 teammate will be

Paul di Resta (GBR) Force India F1 talks with the media. Formula One World Championship, Rd17, Indian Grand Prix, Buddh International Circuit, Greater Noida, New Delhi, India, Qualifying, Saturday 27 October 2012.Nov.9 (GMM) Force India is yet to announce some news which was expected earlier this week, but Paul di Resta will almost certainly be staying for a third consecutive season with the Silverstone based team.

Asked by Brazil’s Totalrace about the contract, the Scot reportedly answered: “It’s team policy not to discuss it, but I’m not worried.

“I’m not a bit worried,” he added.

Indeed, the real question is who will join him at the Vijay Mallya owned squad next year: an old hand like his 2011 teammate Adrian Sutil, or a young charger like reserve driver Jules Bianchi.

“I feel I could handle a rookie on the team, as well as someone competitive,” said di Resta. “I feel I have enough experience and have been a part of this team long enough [for either situation].”

Pressed to nominate his favourite, he insisted: “To be totally honest, I don’t care. The decision is not mine and so it’s something I don’t worry about. I’m hired to do a job on the track.”
