Sept.24 – The German quick Adrian Sutil clearly says that Force Indian targeting double point finish for tomorrow Singapore GP. Adrian Sutil and Paul di Resta will start 9th and 10th from Sunday Singapore GP.
“We can be pretty happy with today’s result,” explained Sutil. “Going into qualifying we felt we had the pace to make the top ten, but that being higher than ninth and tenth would be difficult to achieve. So once we made Q3 we felt we had got the maximum from the car and that it would be a better decision to save our tyres. We kept an eye on what Mercedes were doing, but stayed in the garage in the end. I think the advantage of saving a set of tyres is worth it because it’s a tough race for tyres and we have more options with the strategy. For tomorrow, anything could happen in the race but our clear goal is to finally get both cars in the points.”
“Considering the difficult day I had yesterday, it feels pretty good to be starting in P10 for my first Singapore Grand Prix,” added di Resta. “We knew yesterday that the car had good performance here and I think we got as much as we could from that session. That’s why we stayed in the garage during Q3 because it gives us a free tyre choice.”
“In terms of tyres I’ve got to rely a bit on the data from Adrian’s car because I didn’t get a chance to do any high fuel runs yesterday. This morning I didn’t feel quite so comfortable on the supersofts but felt happier on the soft tyre. For the race we’ll be aiming to take the fight to the cars ahead of us, but we also need to keep an eye on the guys behind because all the midfield cars have shown strong race pace recently.”
