Di Resta says Force India can keep the progression

Published

on

Force India speedy Paul di Resta retired from second lap of his home race at Silverstone in last race weekend. But the Brit is strongly says that Force India can keep the progression and the level going.

The Force India duo finished British GP without points. The German Nico Hulkenberg run with strong race and keep ninth place, but unfortunately he ran wide at Copse corner and dropped out of the points.

“Valencia we were very strong and in up and coming events we should be relatively optimistic that we can do something,” di Resta told autosport. “I think we have made step forward.

“The teams around and about us started very well but we are catching up and so long as we can keep the progression and the level going… the guys are working hard and trying hard to understand it all.”

After the British GP, Force India team principal says he was disappointed with di Resta’s retirement and they are still doubt on that contact in the first couple of corners with di Resta.

“We should have scored points today so we leave our local race feeling disappointed. Nico drove a strong race and looked set for ninth, but we lost out to Senna with a couple of laps to go. Unfortunately in his eagerness to regain the spot Nico ran wide at Copse corner and dropped out of the points, which is frustrating.”

“I’m also disappointed for Paul who retired after just a couple of laps. His car would have been well suited to the dry conditions today and we never got a chance to see what he could do in front of his home crowd. It’s still unclear what caused the puncture, but we suspect contact in the first couple of corners.”
