Di Resta wanting 'big results'

Di Resta wanting 'big results'

Paul di Resta is hoping Force India can repeat last year's strong finish as the team looks to challenge Williams and Sauber in the standings.

Last season, having scored in just four of the opening nine races, Force India put together an impressive run in the second half, bagging top-ten results in nine of the last ten events.

This ensured the team secured their best-ever result in the Constructors' Championship when the finished in sixth place.

This year, the team is down in eighth place having failed to carry last year's season-ending form through into this year's Championship.

Di Resta, though, is hoping that Force India can at least put in a repeat performance and finish strong as they attempt to hunt down Williams and Sauber, the latter of which is 34 points ahead.

"There's still a long way to go in the Championship and we need to get back to scoring regular points. Last year we ended the season strongly and we need to do the same this year," the 26-year-old said.

"Williams are not too far ahead of us but Sauber have a big points advantage and it's going to be a big task to overcome that.

"But we won't give up; we'll keep pushing and see what we can do. We definitely have the potential to get some big results before the end of the year."

The Scot is eagerly anticipating the next race on the calendar with Formula One heading to Spa after the summer break.

"Spa is a great place to begin the second part of the season. It's one of the best tracks in the world and it always feels special to go back there.

"I never had the chance to race there a lot in my junior career so it's nice to be able to go there and experience such an impressive range of corners in a Formula One car."
