Force India driver Di Resta upbeat ahead of British GP
London: Force India driver Paul Di Resta has expressed hope of performing well at his home Grand Prix at Silverstone following promising performances in his last two races.
Di Resta knows he could and should have achieved more in Montreal and Valencia, only to finish 11th and seventh respectively.
During the Canadian Grand Prix, he was running fifth at his first pit stop, only to drop back over the second half of the race.
In last weekend’s European Grand Prix, he only qualified 10th after admitting to a mistake on his final run. Executing a one-stop strategy in the race, Di Resta was as high as second at one point.
But then a safety car period undermined Force India’s strategy and he finished on a set of Pirelli tyres with no grip.
“We have some minor upgrades coming that should give us performance. So if we can carry on from where we are we should be going into Silverstone thinking positively,” Di Resta said.
“We`ve still work to do because the problem with Silverstone is that it will show up any struggles you are having,” he added.
