F1: Vettel Hopes To See Di Resta On Grid

F1: Vettel Hopes To See Di Resta On Grid

Sebastian Vettel has told Paul di Resta he hopes to see his former F3 championship rival and teammate on the Formula One grid next year.

Scottish driver di Resta, who is a year older than the new F1 champion, beat 23-year-old Vettel to the F3 Euro Series title by 11 points in 2006 when they were both with the French ASM team.

So when Mercedes-Benz hailed its new DTM champion in Stuttgart on Thursday, Vettel appeared by video link and according to motorsport-magazin.com told di Resta: “I hope to see you in Formula One next year.”

And the SID news agency quotes Vettel as adding: “Hopefully it will not be as tight as it was in F3!”

Di Resta, who won five F3 races compared to Vettel’s four in 2006, is now strongly linked with a Force India race cockpit for 2011 after serving as third driver this season.

He is reportedly in competition with Vitantonio Liuzzi and Nico Hulkenberg, with Adrian Sutil saying again this week that he has agreed a deal to stay with the Silverstone-based team in 2011.

“We have reached an agreement. The signature is a mere formality, which will happen,” DPA news agency quotes Sutil as having told the broadcaster Eurosport.

“The drivers who do not have a contract yet want to join the team because it is the best team with an open place,” the German added.
