Mallya to reveal team lineup in Monaco

Sun, 18 November 2007, 12:54

Force India is expected to reveal its full driver lineup for 2008 in Monaco early next month, an Indian daily newspaper said.

The Asian Age said new team owner Vijay Mallya will address the Motor Sport Business Forum in Monte Carlo, which precedes the FIA awards gala dinner, on December 5, where he is due to divulge the plans.

Adrian Sutil is under contract to the former Spyker team also for 2008, but the rookie German is also linked with a switch to replace Fernando Alonso at McLaren.

The second seat, meanwhile, is hotly contested, with established names including Ralf Schumacher, Giancarlo Fisichella, Vitantonio Liuzzi and Christian Klien among those vying to race for the Silverstone based team.

“From a business point of view, Monaco in early December is the ideal place and time to introduce the Force India F1 concept to the great and good of the global motor sport industry,” Mallya is quoted as telling the newspaper.
