Daily Mirror reported that Ferrari has shortlisted Di Resta for a possible replacement of the struggling Massa, who had an ordinary 2011 and has collected just two points from the first four races of 2012.
The paper report also claimed that The Scuderia outfit inquired about Di Resta during the Chinese Grand Prix last month.
The 26-year-old, who made his F1 debut with Force India last year, has been impressive this season with three points finishes from four rounds. His best result came in Bahrain last month when he finished sixth after starting 10th on the grid.
The Scot has also managed to outpace his German teammate Nico Hulkenberg, earning 15 of the team’s 17 points.
