Force India will confirm Paul di Resta as its third driver on Tuesday, according to sources.

It is believed the deal, which could involve the 23-year-old running on the Fridays of some Grand Prix weekends, will be announced in Glasgow.

"I can't say anything about what's happening," Di Resta, a DTM driver for Mercedes in 2009, is quoted as saying by Scotland on Sunday.

It is rumoured the deal may involve a full race seat with the Silverstone based team in 2011.

The team's chief operating officer Otmar Szafnauer is already in Scotland, according to the Daily Record newspaper.

"Hopefully we can build a very long and strong relationship for me to try to race with Force India," di Resta, the cousin of reigning Indycar champion Dario Franchitti, added.
