Paul Di Resta is poised to become the third Briton on the Formula One grid this season, joining former champions Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button.

Force India have called a press conference for tomorrow to reveal the identity of one of their drivers. Given the location is the Glasgow headquarters of whisky giant Whyte & Mackay, one of the team's key sponsors, it appears certain Scotland's Di Resta will be confirmed, after weeks of speculation.

The 24-year-old is likely to replace Italian Vitantonio Liuzzi and race alongside Germany's Adrian Sutil, who is due to retain his seat with Force India for a fourth consecutive year.
