Williams F1 test driver and DTM ace Paul di Resta is the latest online driving instructor for SAFEisFAST.com

The 31-year-old currently competes across two series, combining F1 testing duties for Williams Racing with a drive for Mercedes in DTM, a championship he won back in 2010. Di Resta is also a pundit and co-commentator for Sky Sports F1.

Having excelled in karting as a youngster, di Resta began his car-racing career in Formula Renault before graduating to the Formula 3 Euro Series, where he beat four-time F1 world champion Sebastian Vettel to the 2006 title. Four seasons in DTM soon followed, culminating in the 2010 title before he switched to F1 with Force India the following year.

Di Resta spent three seasons with Force India, racking up 121 points and a best finish of fourth. The Scot returned to DTM in 2014, and in 2016 was hired as reserve driver for Williams F1 team.
