Di Resta concentrating on this year, not the future

A decision about Paul di Resta’s future will only be taken “later in the year”, the Scottish rookie said on Thursday.

Force India’s Vijay Mallya has an option on the 25-year-old for 2012 and talks with di Resta’s manager Anthony Davidson are understood to have begun.

“There is no movement yet, things are still going along,” said di Resta, who retains strong links with the team’s engine supplier Mercedes.

“It’s better to concentrate on this year at the moment,” he added.
