Di Resta content despite brake disc fire
23 March 2012 – Paul di Resta experienced a dramatic day of practice in Malaysia on Friday. Not only did the Scot spin his Force India into the infield at Turn 6, but also ran off-track due to a puncture at the final corner. On top of this, the Force India suffered a left-rear brake fire upon its return to the pits.
“A very hot day in the car, but we got through most of the programme and have enough information going into tomorrow,” said the 2010 DTM Champion.
“There was an issue with one of the brake discs in the afternoon session, which probably looked more dramatic from outside the car, so the team made some changes before I started my long runs on the Medium tyre.
“It’s always difficult to read too much performance-wise from a Friday, but I would expect the midfield to be very competitive once again this weekend.”
