Di Resta can join F1 elite – Sir Jackie (The Scotsman)

“He’s impressed everyone with what he’s achieved during his Friday test sessions with Force India this year, and he’s fast. But he’s also very clever, astute and ? from what I’ve heard ? very good with his technical feedback. I definitely think he’d help strengthen the grid even more.”

Several sites were caught out by a fake story about HRT securing a sponsor for 2011 (here’s one of them). If I were a HRT employee concerned over the future of the team I wouldn’t be impressed by false reports of the team securing a major sponsor.

Comment of the day

Kamui Kobayashi won the “Pass of the Year” vote last year and this year he was voted “Overtaker of the Year” by F1 Fanatic readers. Here’s Puffy’s explanation why:

His overtaking moves were gutsy in a car that quite frankly had no right to be overtaking some of those that it did. Much easier to streak past another car in a nice elegant manner when you?re in a McLaren or Ferrari. He?s definitely rough around the edges but man is he entertaining; and a driver that I expect great things from some day.
