Formula 1 is safe, insists Paul di Resta

Force India driver Paul di Resta insists Formula 1 is safe despite motorsport being rocked by two fatal accidents in the last two weeks in which MotoGP rider Marco Simoncelli and IndyCar driver Dan Wheldon were killed.

The Scotsman says he is "comfortable" competing in F1 and believes the sport is getting "safer every year".

Di Resta will compete in the home country of team owners Vijay Mallya and Sahara India Pariwar this weekend when he races at the Indian GP, and the Scot says he is out to "impress" his bosses.
