Merc boss says Di Resta in line for F1 seat
20 September, 2010
Sep.20 (GMM) Paul di Resta has a “good chance” of moving into formula one sooner rather than later. That is the view of Norbert Haug, the motor sport director of the German carmaker Mercedes-Benz.
Haug works with Scottish rookie di Resta, who is also Mercedes-powered Force India’s reserve and Friday driver, in the German touring car championship DTM. The 24-year-old won from pole at the Oschersleben circuit on Sunday.
“I think his chances for a formula one seat are good,” Haug revealed. “Of course I hope he stays with us but I also know he has to take the opportunity when it arises. I would absolutely support him in that,” the German is quoted by racexpress.nl.
