Anthony Hamilton, father of 2008 Champion Lewis and manager of Paul di Resta, is confident that the Scottish DTM title winner of 2010 is in a strong position for a Force India race seat for next season.
Having driven in several Friday free practice sessions for Force India this year, di Resta clinched the DTM crown for Mercedes last month and Hamilton remains confident that the 24-year-old from Uphall, West Lothian can step up to Formula 1.
“There hasn't been one bit of negative information from the team about Paul,” he told BBC Sport. “He has done a great job, the team love him.
“He's a Champion and a leader. Nothing has changed; he is still a contender for a race seat. We are very positive.”
Force India is yet to reveal either of its drivers for the 2011 season although Germany’s Adrian Sutil is strongly tipped to remain on-board after finishing the 2010 campaign 26 points and four positions ahead of Italian team-mate Vitantonio Liuzzi.
