DiResta did himself no favours in rubbishing his team on a number of occassions and he proved to be rather less good than many had thought.
He may well go back to the DTM but other than keeping his career afloat for a bit longer I see no real point. In a couple of years he will be out of the picture and popping up in celebrity races and I doubt very much if his sour face and general demeanor will do him any favours there either.

It's a damn shame that he gets the boot while people like Perez & especially Sutil keep their place in F1 not to mention the pay drivers like Maldonado!

I hope he gets another chance in the future but he is the least deserving driver to be kicked out of F1!

There are only a few drivers on the grid who can rubbish a team and get away with it and they are usually driver with the highest talent just ask Mclaren.

I'm quite surprised at the lack of support for Di Resta. He did a better job than a lot of other drivers this year. Okay mid field at best, but reasonable.

What I think is pretty poor is that Di Resta and others are left out on the cold in favour of other drivers that are nowhere near as good, but can buy their way into, or stay in the sport. Maldonado, as one example, should be out but his money bought a seat, just like Barichello managed to stay in the sport long beyond his time and ability should have allowed.

They all go on about F1 having the best drivers in the world and so on. I'm afraid it seems more obvious this year that isn't the case. You may be the best, but if you don't bring money, you've next to no chance. Kind of raises questions about the integrity of the teams and the sport as a whole. But ssadly thats F1. Its a money sport more than a talent sport.
