Hamilton versus Di Resta court case starts 4 December, 2013 Anthony Hamilton with Paul di Resta Lewis Hamilton’s father, Anthony is in court this week where he is suing his former client Paul di Resta for wrongful dismissal and subsequent loss of earnings. At the time Di Resta said that he fired Hamilton because he was misled about an energy drinks sponsorship with a company called ‘Go Fast’. Di Resta allegedly brought the €5.5 million deal to Hamilton and was told by him that buying his drinks sponsorship rights from Force India would cost €2 million. Reportedly, Di Resta fired Hamilton after he approached the Silverstone based team himself and found that buying the rights from Force India actually cost only €1 million. Di Resta appeared in court yesterday [Tuesday] and revealed during proceedings that it is very unlikley he will get a Formula 1 drive next year. Also expected to give evidence during the court case is McLaren team principal Martin Whitmarsh. (Apex-GMM) Subbed by AJN.
