Di Resta's Grandfather Runs a Brothel

Paul di Resta's family history has just made the world of Formula 1 more colorful. Since the Scottish driver is a new figure in the series, the media started digging up his past in order to offer the fans a better idea of who this guy is and how he made it into F1.

However, while doing so, the German reporters have discovered some uncomfortable details about certain members of his family tree. And it's not related to racing, as it doesn't share any information about his racing pedigree, but about the fact that certain members of his family are in the “gentlemen's business”.

Let's start with aunt Delizia, who, according to the Bild newspaper in Germany, runs an adult entertainment club in Edinburgh, called 'Bottom's Up'. And since the business probably goes well in the family, her brother Tom (Paul's uncle) also seems to run a similar club in the Scottish capital, called “Fantasy Palace”.

And if you're wondering from who Tom and Delizia got their skills in running such businesses, find out that their 81-year old father – Paul's grandfather – is the proud owner of the Ambassador, a sauna/brothel. And Di Resta's father Louis is also a club owner, heading multiple such locations, among which the best known is “The Twig” in Bathgate.

Yes,” 24-year-old Paul di Resta confirmed reluctantly, according to the aforementioned source, cited by the GMM news agency. “Part of my family is in the 'gentlemen's business'.”
