    He was only on Sky at the weekend as Davidson was thrashing round CotA in his Nissan. Hopefully Ant will be back for Japan.

    Williams have fufilled their contractral obligation of having a dullard over-rated Scottish driver who does TV work as their 3rd driver by signing Paul Di Resta up for the job.

    When asked about how he felt about the role he apparently stated that it wasn't his fault that he was 3rd driver but was down to tactical errors by the team and mechanical failures. He went on to say for the next 20 mins that it was obvious he was a top driver and deserved a top drive as he once beat Vettel in a junior series. By this time all the press had fallen asleep.

    He has also been announced as a pundit on Sky which has been celebrated by C4 as it may attract them more viewers.

    (I know I'm very harsh on Paul Di Resta by the way but don't rate him).

    Sir Jackie has always rated Paul Di Resta as a driver who deserved a competitive car, not because he's Scottish.

    More likely they share a sponsor.

    Still, at least it means he's displaced Adrian Sutil...

    Di Resta has apparently turned up on the BBC saying he thought Rosberg's retirement was an April Fool.

    It's December, Paul.

    He knows exactly what month it was when he beat Vettel in Formula Three EuroSeries though. Ask Dario Franchitti, his cousin.

    Looks like Di Resta might get a 2nd lifeline to resurrect his F1 career as he is announced as reserve driver for Williams

    I am thinking after a few shoddy races Massa will retire for good this time and Di Resta will get his chance

    If Massa were to hang up his helmet during the season it would be planned with the start of the European races or the mid-season break. Williams would then choose a good replacement, thereby ruling out Di Resta.

    I suppose it depends on how well Lance Stroll does. If he shows some speed and Massa does decide to pack it in mid-season we may well see someone like Wherlein being placed into a Mercedes powered team or one of their other junior drivers. I can't believe di Resta would be first choice for them or for any other team come to that.
