Despite having a difficult weekend, Paul di Resta still finds an excuse to smile and talk to the fans on stage after the race. He even joined in a number or two with Eddie Jordan's band.

Paul started the British Grand Prix in sixth position, putting in his best qualifying performance of the year, and outperforming his teammate yet again. During the race he made contact with Sébastien Buemi and had to make an unscheduled stop. The team were not ready with his tyres, expecting Adrian Sutil instead.

The delay cost him time and track position, and also delayed Sutil a little, as his tyres were rapidly cooling as they waited. Di Resta eventually finished 15th, but still managed to take the entire weekend in his stride.
