Force India's Paul di Resta is hopeful he will be able to make a 'big impact' at the 2013 F1 British Grand Prix this weekend.

The Scot has had a great season so far, scoring points in six out of the seven races, and he added that in his opinion the VJM06 is 'the best car' the Silverstone-based outfit has produced in the time he has been there.

"I think we can be pretty happy with how we have done this year. All things considered we've managed to get some good results and kept up our momentum. The last two results, in particular, felt very satisfying, especially because we managed to get the strategy spot on to come through the field," he remarked.

"These results set us up nicely for this weekend, which is a massive one for everyone in the team.

"It's always a highlight of the year and with the way our car is working these tyres at the moment, we are looking really healthy.

"I believe this car is the best we've ever had and everyone in the team is working hard to squeeze even more performance from it.

"The key for Silverstone is to hopefully get three successful days in a row on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. That's what we did in Bahrain and it really paid off. If we can do it at Silverstone, then hopefully we can make a big impact on the race," he concluded.
