Paul di Resta, Force India, Korea International Circuit, 2013Paul di Resta says he is still not sure what caused his crash in the closing stages of the Singapore Grand Prix.

He was on course for sixth place when his Force India understeered wide into the barrier at turn seven with seven laps to go.

“The big question is why it did happen and why we lost all that downforce and why we went off,” said Di Resta. “Even the team are a bit unexplained.”

“But at some point you have to move on, you have to progress and learn from it.

“Maybe in a different position we’d have done something different but we’ll continue to keep pushing because it is still possible with the car we’ve got, although it’s not the strongest we’ve got, it still can get results and our tyre management showed to be very strong.”

Di Resta believes the team were on course for a good result before the Safety Car was deployed:

“Our pace was very good. I think the whole weekend we took a different approach, maybe it didn’t look the best on Saturday afternoon, but we were the only ones that were going to achieve a two-stop strategy.

“We were strong, but you get unexpected things like that.”
