Vijay Mallya has poured cold water over rumours his Force India drivers are leaving, saying he will do "whatever" he has to do to retain both.


In recent weeks Nico Hulkenberg has been linked to Ferrari are Felipe Massa's replacement while Paul di Resta could replace Lewis Hamilton at McLaren should he head over to Mercedes.

But, according to Mallya, neither move will be happening as he intends holding onto the German and the Scot.

"I have confirmed to both my drivers that I want to retain them, and that's it," the team boss told F1 journalist Adam Cooper.

"I will do whatever I have to do to retain my drivers.

"I've not been approached by anybody, contrary to all the speculation.

"The fact that their names are mentioned only shows that my trust and faith in them is not misplaced."

Felipe Nasr and Valtteri Bottas head out to begin the fourth and final day
