Force India`s Di Resta vows Grand Prix win before season end
London: Force India driver Paul di Resta has vowed to secure his first grand prix victory before the end of this season ahead of the Spanish Grand Prix.
Although Di Resta, touted as the `Flying Scot`, has yet to even step on to the podium in Formula One, he is sure that a chequered flag is there for the taking after making his strongest start to a campaign, the Daily Star reports.
The report further said that Di Resta, who equalled a career-best result in Bahrain when he finished fourth, is even willing to challenge triple world champion and Red Bull ace Sebastian Vettel and fellow Britons Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) and Jenson Button (McLaren) for the title.
Stating that something special is on the horizon with a car that has been termed as a top-10 challenger, the British driver said that he would never talk down a win as it would look silly, adding that he thinks that he has the potential to do much better in the nest 15 grands prix after achieving the fourth place in the Bahrain GP.
Di Resta further said that the key to success in F1 is by building one`s reputation as then one is always being watched which prods him to keep working hard and improve himself, adding that a driver always delivers on pressure.
Overall, Di Resta finished 10th quickest, 1.2 seconds behind Vettel, with the Red Bull star 0.017 seconds ahead of home hero Fernando Alonso`s Ferrari, the report added.
