Di Resta has 'fingers crossed' for Force India debut (GMM) Paul di Resta has his "fingers crossed" for a formula one race debut with Force India in 2011.
He is currently the team's reserve driver, and at Silverstone will make another track appearance during Friday morning practice.
Mercedes-backed di Resta, who also races with the German marque in the DTM series, is managed by Lewis Hamilton's father Anthony.
The 24-year-old is quoted by the PA news agency as remaining focused on his 2010 duties.
"It's taking one step at a time because it is a big task this year, and hopefully I'm impressing the team enough that I can build a future," said di Resta, whose cousin is the successful IndyCar driver Dario Franchitti.
Although Force India's current race drivers are Adrian Sutil and Tonio Liuzzi, di Resta admitted he would like a seat next season.
"It's certainly a great team to be part of. I'd love to be driving one of their cars next year, so fingers crossed."
