Bahrain Grand Prix: Paul Di Resta admits situation 'uncomfortable'

Force India driver Paul di Resta has described the situation in Bahrain as "uncomfortable" after four Force India team members were forced to flee as petrol bombs were hurled over their vehicle.

He says he "totally" supports the decision of two team members to leave the Gulf kingdom in the wake of Wednesday's incident.

Despite the disruption, the Scottish driver tells BBC Radio 5 live's James Allen it is "normal business" in the paddock for the time being, but admits the situation is "difficult" after team-mate Nico Hulkenberg commented the team "shouldn't have been put in this position".

The incident came at the end of the first day of work for teams in Bahrain, where they have travelled for this weekend's race following assurances from the country's authorities and F1's governing body, the FIA, that the Gulf state is completely safe.
