Di Resta 'speaking to Force India every few days'
11 December 2013 – Paul di Resta has revealed that he is still in regular contact with Force India about continuing with the team in 2014.
The Scot has been with the outfit since 2010 – initially as a test driver, before stepping up to race in 2011 - and while he concedes it is looking likely he won’t be with the Silverstone-based outfit again next season, it seems there is still a slight glimmer of hope, although McLaren reject Sergio Pérez is undoubtedly the favourite to land the drive alongside Nico Hülkenberg.
“Force India are speaking to me every two or three days,” di Resta said on Tuesday according to Herald Scotland.
“They may be interested. They may not. I believe they are in talks with Sergio Pérez.
“It's looking likely that I will not be driving.”
Talking about his other options for 2014, he stated: “The only [F1] team that really has any [other] possibility is Sauber.
“[But] there has been nothing other than a chat with my manager.”
“I am [also] speaking to Mercedes-Benz for DTM,” added the Scot, who won the German tin-top series title back in 2010, before switching to F1.
Di Resta’s comments came at the High Court in London, where he was giving evidence after being sued by his former manager, Anthony Hamilton – Lewis Hamilton’s father – for wrongful termination of contract. The case is due to end this week.
