Force India preview quotes – 2012 Bahrain GP

Paul di Resta, Force India
2010 Qualifying – n/a, 2010 Race – n/a

“We will have the same car in Bahrain because it’s just a few days away, but it’s a very different track and we expect different weather conditions so we will try to make the most out of that. The team have some good ideas because we have not raced there for a couple of years and nobody has had a chance to run on Pirellis there yet.”

Nico Hulkenberg, Force India
2010 Qualifying – n/a, 2010 Race – 14th

“I enjoy the track, which has quite a nice rhythm and some technical corners, such as turns nine and ten. It’s in the desert and sand can be an issue on the track, but it really depends on the strength and direction of the wind.

I think the secret to a good lap is not to be too aggressive into the braking zones because you need to carry good speed through the middle of the corners and get early on the throttle to carry the speed onto the straights. Overtaking is possible, especially into turn one because you can pick up a good slipstream down the straight.”

Dr Vijay Mallya, Force India team principal
“Although we missed out on points in China, we take encouragement from our race pace, which showed that the developments we are bringing to the car are paying off and that we are closing the gap to our midfield rivals. It’s easy to point to statistics, but Paul finished the race just 22 seconds away from second place and seven and half seconds away from seventh place. It shows that we can stay in the hunt for points and that we have the potential to make some good progress when the championship returns to Europe and we can make further improvements to the car. Bahrain this week will be another tough test, but it’s a circuit with different characteristics and climate. We picked up points the last time we raced in Bahrain in 2010 so we will approach the weekend determined to deliver a repeat performance.”
