Di Resta ready for most vital season of his career

Published

on

Force India’s Paul di Resta well prepared for another important season of his career, he undergoing with hard training with his neighbor in Monaco, McLaren’s Jenson Button.

The first half of the last season the Scot performing well, but the second half was very unlucky for him, du Resta earned just two points from the last six races.

The Scot now fight back with personal trainer Gerry Convy, there can be no excuses when it comes to physical and mental strength.

“I’m getting there. It’s nice we can go out and train together. We’ll still have that competitiveness at the track. But it’s good we have developed a friendship where we can go out and knock ideas off and even talk about our personal lives. Di Resta told Press Association Sport.

“I’m sure at the track we’ll probably train together a little this year, and Jenson is very fit. He obviously has this desire to do triathlons, whereas I can’t run. I can’t really take it. I do different things. I mix it up — swimming, rowing, cycling, weights — because you can get very bored and out of the zone.

“I’m now seeing the difference. In January I trained on 27 of the 31 days. I have definitely lifted it another level, which is good.”

“For whatever reason nothing went the right way at the end of last season. Essentially you always remember the end of a year more than the beginning — and with my crash as well. There were some good drives, some good pace, but it just never worked out. He said

“I’ve been through times like that where you just need to dig deep and eventually you get out of it. Hopefully this year will be the year. Of course, there is pressure on me this year. It’s my third year in Formula One. But, as always, nobody puts pressure on me to do well like I do on myself.”
