Force India was not finished in top ten at Chinese Grand Prix, currently Force India standing eighth place on the constructor’s championship, now they are fighting with mid-runners Sauber and Williams both are good shape in 2012.
“We always felt that scoring points would need an element of luck or attrition, but as it was we saw almost 100 percent reliability,” explains Deputy Team Principal Bob Fernley.
“Paul was in the mix for most of the race, fighting to get in the top ten and ending up just under eight seconds from seventh place and just 22 seconds off second place, which shows how competitive the field was today.
“Nico’s race was compromised by a poor getaway and the front wing damage, but we take encouragement from the pace he showed, especially towards the end of the race. We know that our race pace relative to our midfield rivals is not too far away and hopefully we can continue to close the performance gap quickly.”
