What a turn of events for Paul di Resta. He came to Hungary as a Sky Sports pundit but will now get the chance to line up on the grid for Sunday's race. The Scot, who famously beat Sebastian Vettel to the F3 championship in 2006, clearly feels he never got the opportunity to properly show what he could do in F1 during those three years at Force India. He'll have a huge task to get up to speed immediately for qualifying in a car he's never driven but opportunities like this are very rare in Formula One.
