Di Resta will not drive in Korea either

 di RestaPaul di Resta will not be running on Friday at the Korean Grand Prix, making it three races in a row the Scot has sat out practice.

With Korea being a new circuit for all drivers, Tonio Liuzzi and Adrian Sutil will need as much track time as possible and so di Resta will not be driving.

"For the second event in a row I'll be going to another new track and country I've not visited before," said di Resta.

"As we decided at the start of the season, I'm not going to be driving in Korea as it's a new track for everyone and the drivers will need the extra track time to get used to its nuances.

"With the track being ready so late, that extra time is even more important as the conditions are going to evolve very, very quickly over the race weekend.

"From my perspective however it will be interesting to see the new venue and also experience how the team prepares for a completely new event, both at the track and back at the factory."

The team will be introducing a revised front wing as well as some mechanical and aero updates in the hope of boosting its performance in Korea.
