It is now expected that the team's long-time regular Adrian Sutil may have to seek alternate employment, with Friday driver Hulkenberg set to step up to the race seat alongside rookie Scot di Resta.

"There are quite a few rumours going on. At the moment, that is what they are," admitted Hulkenberg in Delhi this week.

"A decision has not yet been taken," said the 24-year-old, referring to his boss Vijay Mallya's scheduled announcement in mid December. "I'm waiting for that day.

"Hopefully, the association (with Force India) will be a good one and I look to a good future with them."

You have got to keep showing the results, maybe show them even a bit more

Even di Resta, Sutil's current race teammate, is not feeling comfortable.

"It (the December announcement) does play on your mind, I won't deny it," he told the Guardian. "You have got to keep showing the results, maybe show them even a bit more."
