      Williams’ reserve driver Di Resta joins Sky Sports F1 team

      https://corporate.sky.com/media-cent...ports-f1®-team

      Just days before the start of its biggest ever season, Sky Sports F1® coverage has been boosted by a further addition with Williams' newly announced reserve driver Paul Di Resta joining the on-screen team.

      Di Resta will provide his expert analysis on Sky Sports F1® for a substantial number of races this season, further strengthening the award-winning lineup ahead of a season that will see more races than ever before with Sky Sports the only place to watch all 21 races live.

      The Scottish driver competed in 58 F1® races across three seasons for Force India between 2011 and 2013, scoring 121 points in the process and will serve as a back-up Valtteri Bottas and Felipe Massa this term.

      Di Resta won the 2006 Formula 3 Euro series beating teammate Sebastian Vettel into second place before moving to DTM (Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters) where he became champion in 2010.

      Di Resta joins a Sky Sports F1® lineup that already boasts three former F1® drivers, including 1996 World Champion Damon Hill together with Martin Brundle and Johnny Herbert. He also joins Simon Lazenby, David Croft, Natalie Pinkham, Ted Kravitz and Rachel Brookes in the fifth season of Sky Sports F1®.

      Di Resta said: "I’m very excited to be joining the Sky Sports F1® team, the coverage is excellent and I hope I can play my part to help excite and educate everyone watching at home.

      “It’s a huge season, more races than ever and working with both Williams and Sky Sports I’m going to give it everything and enjoy being part of an amazing sport that provides drama and excitement at every turn.”

      Sky Sports Head of F1, Martin Turner said: "Paul brings huge experience to Sky Sports F1® and having someone embedded within a current F1® team is going to add a new level to our coverage this season.

      "He has raced against most of the drivers on the grid this season, and that competitive knowledge will help take viewers closer to the action and provide a deeper level of insight."


      Sky Sports F1® will show the first race of the season from Melbourne exclusively live on Sunday 20 March, and is the only place to see all 21 races live as part of the biggest ever season of F1®.

      Yes, saw that announced a few days ago. He was ok last year for the few races he did. Not a patch on Anthony Davison, the master of the Sky Pad.
      Rest of sky team is the same old suspects. Think many would have like to have seen some fresh faces.
      Just wish we could have five hours of Ted's notebook over the weekend and not just the time limited snippets.

      Still, all the coverage lined up on the sky box, cannot wait till Thursday, when we get the first prog, the Drivers conference.
      Of course up in the early hours for live coverage on Fri, Sat and Sun. Loads of tea and big cooked fry ups, croissants and toast while watching.

      Big talking point will be the new qualifying format, will it work or will it just cause chaos.

      Be interesting also to see how C4 take on F1. Only highlights for them this weekend in Australia, but the next at Bahrain one will be live for them.

      Few of the drivers seem to be happy with it. It could mean some of the fastest cars get knocked out before Q3, which I suppose could mean a more exciting race, with fast cars starting at the back and forcing their way through the field. In a rain effected session it could be complete chaos.
