Paul Di Resta is a talented driver who finished last year well. I think he'll be even hungrier to get ahead this year. However, he was beaten quite handily by Adrian Sutil. There are many reasons Sutil lost his seat at Force India, but I don't think Di Resta was a big part of it.
Nico Hulkenberg spent one year at Williams, where he had a spectacular last race, putting the Williams on pole for the first time since 2005, and also the last time. Following the race, he was sacked for Maldonado. His pole position was a bit of a freak occurrence; he didn't exactly burn up the track for Williams. After sitting out last year, he's back in the seat this year in place of Sutil.
My call: Di Resta will take Hulkenberg quite comfortably this year. Although Hulkenberg is a former GP2 champion, I think Di Resta is the more talented driver. He has shown more race-craft, and will continue to do so.
