Mallya in 'no rush'

Austin: Sahara Force India Team Principal Vijay Mallya has said he is in "no rush" to confirm the teams' driver line-up for F1 2013.

Following Nico Hulkenberg's decision to defect to rivals Sauber, there is at least one vacant seat at the Silverstone-based outfit, and while Paul Di Resta is thought almost certain to be retained, the identity of his teammate remains a mystery.

A number of drivers' have been mooted however in recent months, including the team's current test and development driver and Ferrari Academy man, Jules Bianchi, as well as Toro Rosso reject Jaime Alguersuari, Adrian Sutil and Kamui Kobayashi.

"We have traditionally waited until the end of the season to confirm our line-up and I expect we will stick to this schedule," Mallya stated.
