Williams Martini Racing have issued the following statement with the news that Paul Di Resta will replace Felipe Massa for the rest of the Hungarian Grand Prix weekend.
After feeling unwell during practice in Budapest on Friday and Saturday, Felipe Massa will not drive for the remainder of the Hungarian Grand Prix weekend.
Felipe visited the medical centre and MH EK Honvedkorez hospital for precautionary tests on Friday, after feeling unwell and dizzy during FP2.
