Paul di Resta pleased with eighth place on the grid tomorrow Canadian Grand Prix. The Brit praises the Force India performance specially he expecting VJM05 suitable for long runs and they are targets points finish in Canadian Sunday race.
“I think we can be very happy with eighth today, which puts us in a strong position for the race.” Di Resta said.
“There was probably a little bit more speed in the car because I was a little bit over-committed in the chicanes on my final lap in Q3, but I don’t think it would have made a big difference to my starting position. “
“In all the sessions so far we’ve shown how competitive the car is, especially during long runs, and I think we can be confident of scoring some good points tomorrow. It will be a long race and we just have to wait and see what happens with the weather and who has the best understanding of the tyres.”
Nico Hulkenberg not entered the Q3 of the Canadian Grand Prix qualifying and he managed 13th position. The happy with 13th grid position and he says yellow flag blame his quickest lap cause as a Sauber went off ahead of me in turn eight.
“I don’t think that P13 reflects the pace we had in the car today. We looked very strong in Q1 and I felt really happy with the car, especially after the changes we made between FP3 and qualifying. Hulkenberg said.
“But I had some bad luck in Q2 when I got caught out by a yellow flag on my quickest lap because a Sauber went off ahead of me in turn eight and I had to abort the lap. If I had managed a clean lap, I think I could probably have made Q3. I still feel positive for tomorrow and the field is very close.”
“We know overtaking is possible here so I think we can expect a challenging and entertaining race.”
