June.25 – Adrian Sutil was delighted to have made it in to Q3 for the first time in 2011, explaining that he extracted ‘the maximum from the car’ on his final Q3 lap. The Force India driver made the top ten shootout for the first time this season, leaving him optimistic of scoring points during tomorrow’s 57-lap race.
“The car has been working pretty well all weekend and I felt that we had a good chance to make it through to Q3 today,” said the German. “But I knew that we would have to get the lap just right. That’s why this result feels great because I got the maximum from the car. We didn’t go out in Q3 because we felt it was better to save another set of soft tyres for the race.
“Also, we saw in Q2 that Heidfeld was three tenths away and that it would be difficult to improve on P10. So it’s a good grid position, but the race is what counts so hopefully we can convert this into points tomorrow.”
