Paul di Resta speaks with Force India engineers at Jerez

Paul di Resta has admitted he is quite enjoying his current status as Force India’s only race driver, as Formula 1 testing got underway at Jerez this week.

Since parting with now Sauber racer Nico Hulkenberg, the Silverstone based team has been weighing up its options for 2013, with Jules Bianchi and Adrian Sutil reportedly at the top of the candidates’ list.

Britain’s Daily Mail said the very last place on the 2013 grid should be filled by Force India in time for the forthcoming second pre-season test, in Barcelona.

But Di Resta, although openly disappointed to have missed out on a top seat this year, is quite enjoying the responsibility of being Force India’s only driver for now.

“It’s not affecting me one bit,” he insisted. I’m working away with the people I feel I have to, and in my third season with the team it’s good to have the challenge of developing my feedback,” said Di Resta

“We’re working away on the small details, as we normally do, but my opinion is obviously being well respected by the team,” added the Scot. (GMM)

    Well all the focus is on Paul the only trouble is that if he goes the wrong way he is the only one to blame.

    This guy is an idiot for sure. Another driver would be someone to learn from, for both good and bad. More track time = more telemetry and more bugs worked out. Team Sport Paul, Team sport. Try to remember that.
