Di Resta set for special Silverstone

Di Resta set for special Silverstone

Paul Di Resta is eagerly anticipating taking to the track for the British Grand Prix at Silverstone next weekend.

Di Resta and Force India have managed six points scoring finishes in seven races so far this year, enabling the team to lie fifth in the constructors standings (ahead of the likes of McLaren), and the Scot can't wait to test himself on the Silverstone track layout, which he says is 'like nothing else in the world'.

"It's the track that makes you really appreciate what a Formula One car is capable of," said Di Resta.

"Especially the aerodynamic grip through the quick corners and the change of direction. Everybody talks about Maggotts and Becketts, and there really is nothing else like them anywhere in the world.

"I also enjoy the new section and every year we go back there it gets better and better. The new layout has definitely created some more overtaking opportunities, especially with the introduction of DRS, so it's been the right move."

Di Resta also paid tribute to the Silverstone atmosphere, saying: "For me it's the biggest event we go to, especially in terms of support from the British fans, which is always amazing.

"The atmosphere is electric and I remember last year the drivers' parade was one of the highlights of the year - it really sent a shiver through me because of the reaction we received and the fact that there wasn't a seat left in the place."
