Paul di Resta (DEE-rest-ah; born 16th April 1986) is a British racing driver who most recently drove for Force India in 2013. He made his début for the team in 2011.

Without a drive for 2014, he returned to DTM, although it was not until 2015 that the Scot found his former pace. He signed for a seventh season in the DTM in 2016, before being announced as the Williams F1 test and reserve driver for the 2016 Formula One season on 14 March 2016.[1] He was once again confirmed as their reserve driver for 2017,[2] before confirmed to compete at Hungary after Felipe Massa fell unwell.[3][4]
