Sept.27 – The Force India team boss Vijay Mallaya pleased with double point finish at last Sunday race in Singapore. Now the Silverstone F1 squad expands the point’s gap with Sauber
Force India’s duo, Paul di Resta and Adrian Sutil finished in respectively sixth and eighth positions. And now Mallaya expect to carry the momentum on to the Japanese GP at legendary Suzuka next race.
“I have to say, I am delighted,” the Indian entrepreneur commented. “We knew we had the performance in the car to get both drivers in the points, but to come away with 12 points is extremely satisfying; it strengthens our sixth place in the championship and moves us closer to fifth place.
“One of the key moments of the race was the Safety Car period, when we chose to pit both cars at the same time. The pit crew did an excellent job of stacking the cars and that played a critical role in where we ultimately finished. Both Paul and Adrian have performed brilliantly all weekend and haven’t put a foot wrong. With five races remaining, we now need to build on this momentum so that we continue our strong finish to the season.”
