Three-time world champion Scot Sir Jackie Stewart has backed countryman Paul Di Resta as an ideal team mate for Fernando Alonso at Ferrari.

Stewart said: "Alonso is almost at his peak and to have a driver such as Di Resta as his understudy is something I'd consider if I was at Ferrari."

The 26-year-old Force India driver equaled his best F1 finish in Singapore last year with his sixth place last time out and Stewart is clearly a believer.

"Paul has an enormous amount of talent," Stewart said. "I hope Scotland doesn't ask too much too soon from him. You've got to be with a top class team to win. Force India are trying to be that, but they're not there yet. Paul has been leading that team to better results."
