Di Resta is on the verge of an F1 exit
Once hailed by manager Anthony Hamilton as a future world champion, per The Independent, Paul di Resta now appears on the verge of life without Formula One.
The 2014 season was by no means a disaster, with di Resta finishing in the points in almost half the races and comfortably outscoring teammate Adrian Sutil.
Following an impressive sixth place finish in Abu Dhabi, di Resta told Sky Sports that he felt he had done enough to merit another season with the team.
However, the Scot has also had his differences with the team.
In Canada, he labelled his team’s performances as “not acceptable” in an interview with BBC Sport after a gearbox software issue hampered his qualifying.
What appears more likely now is that di Resta will move to Indycar, possibly taking cousin Dario Franchitti’s race seat at Chip Ganassi. It’s an option that di Resta told Autosport he would consider.
I wouldn't rule out anything. I've openly said I would discuss it with Dario. At this point, I'm still in the running for the seat here [at Force India], at least I would certainly like to think I am. There are obviously a few other options with interest.
