Di Resta, the reigning DTM champion for Mercedes, has been hailed as "exceptional" by Norbert Haug and tipped for a move to the Silver Arrows by British commentary legend Murray Walker, after the 25-year-old outqualified his experienced teammate Adrian Sutil in his first three attempts with Force India.

"It is great that people are talking but at the same time I have got to keep progressing," di Resta told the Telegraph.

His manager is Anthony Hamilton, the father of 2008 world champion and last-start Shanghai winner Lewis.

Asked about the Mercedes rumours in particular, he said: "I would like to think there is an interest.

"We've not spoken to anyone but for sure Paul is a Mercedes protege and Norbert has said some very complimentary things about him," added Hamilton.
