Paul di Resta

Reserve Driver Mclaren 2022

Paul di Resta was confirmed as a third reserve driver last year, in case both Stoffel and Nyck were occupied during a Formula E race weekend. It’s understood that this agreement is still in place for 2022.
Di Resta had 59 starts to his name in F1 and has a history of stepping in for drivers at the last minute. He was drafted as a substitute for Felipe Massa during the 2017 Hungarian Grand Prix weekend but has not raced in F1 since.

The role is shared with Nick De Vries and Stoffel Vandoorn.
