Paul di Resta may give up F1, 2014, as competition for Force India seats accelerates

London: Force India driver Paul di Resta could prefer to follow his cousin, Dario Franchitti, and associate himself with IndyCar racing for the next season, according to reports.

According to a Newspaper, di Resta is being necessitated to consider a driving career outside Formula One as seats run out for next season.

Di Resta stated that he built up a good reputation in DTM racing, which he conquered in 2010, and there are opportunities in a few other series, further adding that he has always been slightly concerned about the safety of IndyCar but sitting down and looking at it logically, it’s a serious option.

Force India, as usual, will not announce their 2014 drivers until the end of December but they want to re-sign the highly rated Nico Hulkenberg from Sauber, the report said.

The incumbent Adrian Sutil and Sergio Perez , who have been dropped by McLaren, are deserving for the other seat, the report added.
