Paul Di Resta to replace Felipe Massa for remainder of Hungarian GP weekend

Paul Di Resta has been drafted in to replace Felipe Massa at Williams for the remainder of the Hungarian Grand Prix weekend, after the Brazilian fell ill this morning.

Massa was taken to the medical centre after complaining about dizziness and feeling unwell after second practice yesterday, however after being cleared to take part today it seems Massa has taken the decision along with the team to not participate further after experiencing similar symptoms.

That means test/reserve driver Paul Di Resta will step up and take part during the rest of the weekend, making his first appearance with the team and in the new hybrid cars – his last in F1 being the 2013 Brazilian Grand Prix.
