He has a point! For such a small country when we produce a driver he is a great driver, even David Coulthard was brilliant, he was just unlucky that McLaren backed Hakkinen over him in the late 90's early 2000's.

As much as I would love to see Di Resta in a top team, I don't want to see him at Ferrari because he'll have to play second fiddle to Alonso, if it was Mercedes, McLaren or Red Bull then I that would be much better.

He has a great future in front of him and he is whooping Hulkenberg's a$$ at the moment which I didn't expect.

I think he may pop into the Mercedes setup when Schumacher calls it a day, Haug is a big fan of his and he's been a Merc employee for ages. He can't do much more with FI, they are never going to be a top team, they punched above their weight last year.

surprise, surprise... a scot talking up a scot! but in reality, di resta is a merc sponsored driver, so there would be little chance of him being considered for ferrari. he is a reasonably steady performer, but not really ferrari material.

@richard what do you mean "surprise, surprise.. a scot talking up a scot" ? Are we not allowed to have past champions supporting their own countrymen? Every other country does it, Stewart obviously see's the talent there

What about the Herbert on Hamilton story ? Surprise, surprise an englishman talking up and englishman could be said about that thread.

Are you blind ? "A reasonably steady performer" did you not see the last race? He managed to beat both Ferrari's and mr. Hamilton He would certainly do better than Massa is doing right now.

"For a small country we are punching above our weight!" To my knowledge no F1 car is produced in Scotland, no road cars, not even a push bike! As much as I admire Jimmy, Jackie Paul and even DC, lets not get carried away you Scots! Without the English you would have no cars to drive. Count yourselves lucky!
