Paul di Resta admits he is surprised Force India have yet to announce its driver line-up for 2013.
The Scottish driver has a contract for the new season and is fully expected to remain with the team. However the identity of his team-mate remains unknown.
"I am surprised there has been nothing yet," Di Resta is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.
"The team have said they will announce it in good time as to where they are going to be, and I have to respect that."
At present, it is believed test driver Jules Bianchi and former driver Adrian Sutil are heading the list of potential candidates.
An announcement is expected next week, as the team prepares to launch its new car at Silverstone on February 1st.
Di Resta remains focused on his job, but says knowing who he'll be working with has an impact on him.
"Ultimately it does," he replied. "But at the end of the day I know my job, and I am fully focused on what I need to achieve at the moment."
