Force India will wait until long after the 2011 season before finalising its driver lineup for next year.

Team owner and boss Vijay Mallya is openly keen to hang onto impressive Scottish rookie Paul di Resta, whilst also having long-term driver Adrian Sutil on the books along with significant Medion sponsorship.

And in the wings is Nico Hulkenberg, the team's current Friday and reserve driver whose F1 career began promisingly with Williams in 2010.

"It is way too early," said Mallya when asked by F1's official website about the 2012 Force India lineup.

"I will announce my driver lineup around December 15th. Not before that. I want all my guys to focus on the job at hand and not start speculating about their future."
