Paul di Resta will line up against Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button as Britain's third driver on the Formula One starting grid this season after being named on Wednesday as Adrian Sutil's Force India team mate.

Sutil, the 28-year-old German who made his debut with the team in 2007 when they were named Spyker, has been retained for a fifth year.

Germany's Nico Hulkenberg, discarded by Williams at the end of last season to make way for Venezuelan rookie Pastor Maldonado, was appointed test and reserve.

The announcement at a news conference in Di Resta's home city of Glasgow was a major career setback for Italian Vitantonio Liuzzi who partnered Sutil last year and had hoped his contract would keep him in the race seat.
