I was quite surprised for drive-through penalty – Di Resta

Published

on

June.13 – The Force India’s young driver Paul di Resta thinks that the drive-through penalty he received during Canadian GP was undeserved, with Paul damaging his front wing following clipping the back of Nick Heidfeld’s Renault on Lap 42. The Scot then went on to hit the wall at the exit of Turn 8, retiring just three laps from the end of the race.

“The weather conditions were very bad today (Sunday) and given the intensity of the rain it was absolutely the right decision to stop the race,” di Resta began. “There were a lot of rivers running across the track and they were catching people out, even under safety car conditions. After the restart I think things were going well until I lost my front wing against Nick (Heidfeld) at the chicane when he cut across me. That gave me a drive-through penalty, which I was quite surprised to receive because it only really compromised me.

“After that I was coming back through the field and I was pushing to pass Rubens (Barrichello) in the final few laps. Unfortunately I pushed a bit too hard and clipped the wall, which gave me a puncture. That’s why I had to park the car. It’s a shame because we had a strong car today and we could have come away with some important points.”
