Di Resta spokesman confirms split with manager Hamilton
5 July, 2012
The Telegraph had said the 26-year-old Scot and Hamilton, who also no longer manages his son Lewis Hamilton, parted “some weeks ago” for unknown reasons.
A spokesman for di Resta, who is linked with a move to Mercedes for 2013 in the event Michael Schumacher retires again, confirmed the split to the Scotsman and Sun newspapers, but did not elaborate on the reasons.
Hamilton, 56, has not commented. But the Scotsman said di Resta or Hamilton have no plans to formally announce the split.
Martin Brundle, former grand prix driver and leading British television commentator, tipped di Resta for a bright future.
“There is no doubt that Paul will be on the shopping list for consideration by several top and well funded teams in the future and he is unquestionably a great talent,” he said.
“It’s too early to say if he’s world champion material.”
