Di Resta reveals American dream

Di Resta reveals American dream

Paul di Resta has admitted that he would like to try his luck at IndyCar if he doesn't secure a Formula One seat in 2014.

With Force India yet to confirm its driver line-up for next season, the Scot revealed after last weekend's US Grand Prix that he is considering following in the footsteps of his cousin Dario Franchitti.

"I built a good reputation in DTM [an international touring car racing series, which he won in 2010], and there are other opportunities in a few other series," Di Resta told ESPN.

"I've always been slightly concerned about the safety of it [IndyCar], but sitting down and looking at it logically, it's a serious option to look elsewhere because of the success he has had.

"Racing in America is slightly different, isn't it? In Europe, [Franchitti] is probably under-appreciated. But to sit there at 40, having won four IndyCar titles and three Indy 500s ... I would like to be in that position."

Nevertheless, the 27-year-old added that his preference is to stay with Force India for another season.

"They know what I'm capable of here, they know what I can deliver. I feel like I'm an asset to the team but I can't make the decision for them, and I have to respect their decision. I've said all along I'd love to be part of it," he continued.

"I don't know what will happen. I've got to wait and see. We're speaking, and that's all you can do. All is not confirmed yet."
