Ousted driver Paul di Resta hasn't given up on a return to Formula 1 and insists he has the talent and is still young enough to make it happen.

The Scottish driver was dropped by Force India at the end of the 2013 season and despite outscoring his then team-mate Adrian Sutil by 48 points to 29, it was the German who found a seat elsewhere.

Di Resta returned to DTM with Mercedes, but still holds a dream of returning to F1.

"I loved F1; I enjoyed every single thing about it," he told the Scottish Herald newspaper.

"It's the best racing there is and you are up there with la creme de la creme, so obviously it was disappointing not to get the chance to be involved this season. But you have to put up with setbacks and it's how you react to these things which matter.

"I am confident people have seen that I have the qualities to succeed in F1 but, of course, things keep changing in the sport, whether it's the rules or the driver line-ups and, unfortunately, the situation arose where there wasn't a place for me."

The 28-year-old is confident he still has what it takes to compete.

"I am still young enough to believe I can gain another opportunity and I am pushing as hard as I can to make it happen. It obviously helps if you can bring a lot of money to the table, but I worked hard to earn my chance in the first place and I'm not going anywhere. I want to be back in F1 and I will do whatever I can to fulfil that ambition."
