Mercedes-Benz DTM driver Paul Di Resta has a sound understanding when it comes to the technology of vehicles and knows what is required to improve a car's performance, it has been stated.
Manuel Reuter, who commentated on the DTM season alongside Philipp Sohmer for German TV station ARD, believes the Scot outclassed his established teammates and was unlucky not to become DTM champion.

He said: "He experienced a fantastic year - and did so in his first year at the wheel of a latest-spec car. He drove great races, even in the closing stages of the season when he had to cope with a lot of pressure. He delivered in great style at Le Mans and in the season finale at Hockenheim, he also drove a flawless race.

"He is very good when it comes to the technology and knows how to enhance a car."

Reuter added that he is unsure if Di Resta will remain in DTM next season, as he may make the jump to the GP2 series in preparation for a crack at formula one.
Earlier this year, Di Resta completed extensive testing for the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes formula one team.
