Di Resta stimulated by top teams ignore

Paul di Resta says that he is motivated by top Formula 1 teams overlook for 2013 season. The Scottish speedy was linked with a move to both McLaren and Mercedes for 2013.

But McLaren and Mercedes picked Sergio Perez and Lewis Hamilton for next season, now the Scot expected to drive with Force India for another season and he confidently says that to achieve more with Force India in 2013.

“Of course it was flattering to be linked to those seats,” he told the Scotsman newspaper.

“But I won’t deny I was disappointed when both teams opted to go down another route.

“It’s just fired me up even more to go out and deliver next season. Of course you want to be in a car capable of regularly winning races and, ultimately championships. All I can do is go out next season, and deliver.

“If I do that, and it attracts a bigger team, then so be it. At the moment I’m paid to race for Sahara Force India, and I’ll be giving it 100% when we line up on the grid for the season opener in Australia in March.”

Paul di Resta now targets to achieve podium finishes for 2013 Formula 1 season.

“I certainly want a podium and then I want to be on it again. That’s the target,” he added.

“But I don’t want to luck-in to a podium. For me, it has to be a well-earned top-three finish, one which we can build on. We need to do it on merit, and I certainly believe it’s achievable.

“But to do it, we need a car capable of delivering fast, sustainable pace right through not only a race weekend, but also the whole season.”
