BRACKLEY-BASED Force India driver Paul Di Resta declared himself ‘very happy’ after Sunday’s Singapore Grand Prix with the young Scot announcing his fourth place finish in round 14 of the 2012 FIA F1 World Championship was his best day in Formula 1.

The Sahara Force India driver was in superb form throughout the race and chased the leading trio of Sebastian Vettel, Jenson Button and Fernando Alonso hard to the chequered flag.

At the end of the race, Di Resta said: “This was a really hard race for a number of reasons. The safety cars came at difficult times and actually hit Nico (Hulkenberg) very hard.

“I just kept position and my mind on the job in hand. This is without doubt my best day in Formula 1 and I am now really looking forward to Japan and the next race.”

Vijay Mallya, Team Principal of Sahara Force India, was proud of the team effort, saying: “The whole team did a great job today.

“Paul was superb throughout and I do feel sorry for Nico as he should also have been in the points.

“The safety car breaks hurt his progress but I am sure we will be able to continue this form in Japan.”
