Months of speculation over the Force India line-up for 2011 will be ended on Wednesday when the team holds a press conference to reveal its drivers.

While the team remains tight-lipped about what the media will be told, the fact the event is being staged in Glasgow, the home town of Paul di Resta, leaves little to the imagination.

For months Force India have been juggling with which of three drivers to pick - the others are Adrian Sutil and Tonio Liuzzi. In the normal scheme of things most pundits would have tipped Liuzzi to lose out, but the Italian is under contract to drive for Force India in 2011 which complicates matters.

Di Resta was drafted in as Force India's test driver last season and took part in several morning Friday practice sessions ahead of grand prix races. Liuzzi, meanwhile, had a string of races where he failed to finish, more often than not as a result of other drivers' errors.
