Paul di Resta has been in Italy in recent days. That might not sound like noteworthy news, particularly in the days leading into the country's annual grand prix. But with a race cockpit at fabled Ferrari potentially available for 2014, di Resta's pre-Monza holiday destination might actually be significant.

Actually, probably not. The Scot has been vacationing in the hamlet town of Corigliano Sessa Aurunca, which is located more than 500 kilometres from Ferrari's Maranello headquarters. Not only that, the town is reportedly the ancestral home of di Resta's grandfather, Felice, who moved to Scotland some six decades ago.

Nevertheless, when questioned in Italy this week, the 27-year-old did not deny his ambition is to move to Ferrari. "Driving for Ferrari would be a dream for me and my family," he is quoted by Ansa news agency. "I feel at home (in Italy)," he smiled. "But for now I am focused on Force India and the grand prix at Monza, where I want to do well," he added. (GMM)
