Force India duo Paul di Resta and Nico Hulkenberg pleased with team strategy, Paul strat from 14th on the grid and finished seventh position. The British speedy made an extensive first spell strategy work very effectively.
“We went aggressive with the strategy and I have to say the team really optimised it,” Paul said.
“The secret was managing the tyres and trying to find clean air when we could. The car felt really good, much stronger than yesterday, and that allowed me to push when we needed to.”
Nico Hulkenberg started from 10th on the grid he adapt the front runners strategy but much more time spent behind the Lotus F1’s Kimi Raikkonen. But he finished eighth behind his team-mate Di Resta.
“For the first few laps I was running with Michael [Schumacher] and we were stuck behind Kimi who was struggling on the super softs, but it was difficult to get by,” said Hulkenberg.
“Unfortunately Kimi stopped on the same lap as me so I remained behind him and we came out in a lot of traffic, which is when Paul jumped ahead of me.
“The rest of the race was quite uneventful and I just focused on looking after the tyres. It’s a great result for the team and we should be happy with the result.”
