Paul di Resta is a contender for a Mercedes seat if Michael Schumacher does not continue in Formula 1 next year, team CEO Nick Fry has confirmed.

It would be fantastic to see Di Resta in a car with which he can regularly score points, and maybe podiums and victories. Di Resta really gets good results sometimes by just staying out of trouble, picking the right battles and driving to the strategy that he pursues. For a driver that has returned to open wheel cars, his whole approach and performance is impressive.

That would then ranch up the pressure on Rosberg. Di Resta is a very quick learner, and could challenge Nicoís results sooner rather than later.

Iíve enjoyed seeing Schumacher drive since his return in 2010; heís driven some impressive races and hasnít lost that racerís instinct. However, there isnít much point in Schumi being there anymore. For a driver of his calibre, itís not good enough to merely be competitive and racy; heís got outclassed by Rosberg. For somebody who always dominated his teammate, that has to hurt, and if he cannot match the driver next to him in the same car, whatís the point?

Címon Michael, give way to a driver with bags of potential Ė youíve had the chance to show what you can do.

The chances of Di Resta snapping up the seat at Mercedes may well increase if Schumacher's current run of form continues, regardless of today's 'pole position' in Monaco.

2 points and 3 retirements from 5 races doesn't exactly read good for someone of Michael's calibre, and given his antics in Spain, many may question if he really has a place in F1 anymore.

Schumacher drove a beautiful lap today, but as you say, it wonít count for much with the grid penalty. I found Michaelís anger at Hamilton in Spain a little strange too, this was a driver who put Hamilton on the grass at Monza and changed his line in the braking zones, yet gets steamy when someone else blocks him Ė the irony.

There isnít much wrong with Michaelís speed, he seems to be extracting most of the cars potential more often than not. But thatís the problem. Michael set a standard where ďnothing much wrongĒ wasnít good enough, and now he isnít performing to that special level anymore. For the standard he has, I donít see how anything other than consistently beating Rosberg can be worthwhile.

di Resta is more likely to go to McLaren then Mercedes.

Hulkenburg will go to Mercedes.
