Paul di Resta praises his Force India teammates for the way that they dealt with the disruptions in Bahrain.

Force India driver Paul di Resta has praised everybody connected with the team for their conduct in Bahrain.

Four members of the team were caught up in protests on Wednesday night while travelling from the track to their hotel.

Despite the disruptions, Di Resta was able to finish the race in sixth place, something that he has put down the effort of all involved.

"It was an outstanding performance by every member of the team this weekend, and under difficult circumstances," The Scot said. "It's been difficult for every team member, but every one of them has stood up. They played everything right - strategy, pit stops, I worked with my engineer to dial the car in right and the track came to us.

"Sixth position for us is a massive achievement, probably the same for us as Sebastian Vettel winning the race given the car we have.

"Looking at everybody's performance, we've stepped things up, tried to do our best and probably outperformed any performance we've ever had as a team."

Di Resta is currently tenth in the standings.
