Bathgate’s Paul di Resta returns to Formula One action this weekend when he races for the first time in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
And the 25-year-old Scot was right on the pace, clocking the ninth-fastest time in the opening Free Practice session in his Sahara Force India.
“I think this weekend is going to be another exciting race. Our car should be well-suited to the layout of the circuit. In many areas it reflects parts of the circuit in Singapore. I finished sixth there, so that’s a reason to be optimistic,” said di Resta.
Jenson Button topped the timesheets in his McLaren.
