Adrian Sutil, Paul di Resta and Nico Hulkenberg continue to await their Force India fate for the 2012 season as team boss Vijay Mallya still hasn’t decided his line-up.

Mallya initially promised to make a decision on his drivers for next season after the conclusion of the 2011 campaign, but then agreed to bring the date forward following requests from the drivers.

However, he appears to be no closer to making an announcement on his line-up.

“All the drivers have asked me to make an early decision, and I respect that. I have a big decision to make! But it’s not made yet – I’m not the type of guy who’s going to make a decision and string people along. When I decide I will just tell them the way it is and that’s it,” he said.

Of the three, Di Resta appears to be a safe bet for one of the seats while many pundits believe Hulkenberg will edge out Sutil, who has been linked with a move to Williams, for the other drive.
