Force India won't rush decision

Force India won't rush decision

Force India hopefuls will have to wait to learn their fate as Vijay Mallya won't make a decision until after the team's Christmas party.

Several drivers are vying for a seat at Force India for next year's Championship including 2013 race drivers Paul di Resta and Adrian Sutil.

But according to the latest rumours, the team could undergo a complete overhaul with Nico Hulkenberg and Sergio Perez tipped to replace the current pairing.

For now, though, all four - and everyone else - will have to wait as Mallya is in no rush to decide.

"Everybody knows I make the decision at the last minute - well not the last minute - I make the decision after the Force India Christmas party which means in December," the team owner told ESPNF1.

"I see no reason to change it. Yes, I have received approaches from other drivers but they all know that decision time will be in December.

"I would like to think and believe that the Force India race seat is a very desirable seat, it's not just a seat for the sake of having a seat. So I am not surprised that people have come to me."
