Boss Vijay Mallya - who now owns an equal 42.5 per cent share in the Silverstone based team rather than a majority, controlling stake - announced recently that he will not decide the 2012 driver lineup until mid December.

The fact the decision will be taken so late had raised eyebrows within the F1 paddock, so whether the deadline still stands now that Sahara's Subrato Roy is now also in charge is not known.

"At this point I don't know how the structure will work within the team," rookie Scot di Resta is quoted as saying in Korea by the AFP news agency.

He said he knows Mallya remains team principal for now.

"The team have said they're going to do it (the driver decision) in December. Whenever they want to do it, they will do it," he added.
