Paul di Resta had no complaints with his result on Sunday, saying it felt "really good" to bag another top-ten result.


Having been hit hard by Pirelli's decision to change their tyres, Force India have spent the bulk of the races since the summer break trying to recover.

With both cars back in the points last time out in India, the team secured another double points-haul this Sunday in Abu Dhabi.

While Adrian Sutil was tenth, di Resta finished up in sixth place after surprising the bookies at Paddy Power as he held off Lewis Hamilton to the line.

"I think we were up against it, but we set out a great strategy and we finished off the job we should have done in Singapore," the Scot told the BBC.

"Lewis's tyres were 10-12 laps younger than ours and their car is quicker than ours but I felt really good out there today."

Di Resta also spoke of his future in Formula One amidst rumours that the odds of him remaining in the sport are dwindling.

The 27-year-old, though, is adamant that if given the opportunity he will prove himself.

"It is a bit of a nightmare, there are a lot of us who don't know where they will be next season but if I have the tools I know I will deliver," he said.

"[Team principal] Vijay [Mallya] and the other guys are giving off good signals about next season but I would like to know for sure."
