Paul di RestaPaul di Resta will not be making his usual appearance for Force India at tomorrow’s opening practice session for the Monaco Grand Prix.

With the exception of the Bahrain season-opener, the 24-year-old Scot has appeared in a Friday practice session at every Grand Prix this season, with regular drivers Adrian Sutil and Vitantonio Liuzzi relinquishing their cockpits on an alternating basis.

The team has made this decision to equalise the time both drivers will have behind the wheel at the Principality "due to the challenging layout of the circuit that demands the most precise setup of the year".
