The battle for the top driver at Force India this season is heating up with the pair separated by just a solitary point in the championship with four races remaining.

Nico Hulkenberg is 12th with 45 points just ahead of teammate Paul di Resta, with the German having outscored the Scot in the last eight races.

"The fight with Paul is very close. Of course we both want to beat each other, but the main task is working for the team and hopefully catching Sauber,” Hulkenberg told IANS. “That's a big task, but not impossible."

The 25-year-old, who is speculated to move to Sauber in 2013, joined the team this season, although he spent the year before as a test and reserve driver. Di Resta has been racing for Force India since 2011.
