Di Resta: DTM more interesting choice than spec series IndyCar

Paul di Resta

There are several factors working in favor of the DTM over IndyCar for di Resta. Having not raced in a spec-chassis category since Formula Renault in 2004, the appeal of being part of a fierce development race between Mercedes, Audi and BMW was a big draw.

While IndyCar is desperately trying to open up areas of its technical regs to allow for variety in machinery, it hasn't made much progress beyond the engine side yet, and any technical freedom that is coming in the next few years is still not going to match the DTM package – even if that series does now have some common parts across all three manufacturers.
