Force India's deputy team principal Bob Fernley believes Paul di Resta would be a world champion by now if he were driving a Red Bull.

The Scot came very close to taking his first podium last weekend at the Bahrain Grand Prix behind the wheel of a Force India, but fell just short.

When asked by Sky Sports if Di Resta would be a champion by now if he were driving for Red Bull, Fernley replied: "Absolutely, there is no reason why he and a number of others would not have as well, but certainly Paul could," he said.

He believes the majority of drivers on the grid are good enough to be champions if they had the fastest car.

"Probably at least 50 per cent of the drivers on the grid today, given the right car and package, would be a World Champion, because there are some quality drivers," he added.
