Force India duo not succeed to points finis in Hungarian Grand Prix and they says need reliable pace for second half, the Silverstone F1 squad once again fall down to seventh place in constructors championship.
Force India drivers Nico Hülkenberg and Paul di Resta starts from 10th and 12th in grid but the despite guy finished 11th and 12th, and their main rival’s Bruno Senna finished with six points in seventh place for seventh place in Hungarian GP.
Nico Hulkenberg says that 69-lap long-race was a very difficult for him. The German struggled with lot of balance and the car was not good enough pace and also high tyre degradation was cost his points finish.
“A very difficult race, to be honest. I struggled a lot with the balance this afternoon and we just didn’t have good enough pace. The rear tyre degradation was also high and it wasn’t easy towards the end of the race. Hulkenberg said.
“So with all things considered I think P11 was the maximum that was possible because we didn’t make any mistakes and the two-stop strategy was definitely the right decision. We were not far away from the points, but we still need to go away and analyze what happened so that we can improve in time for the next race.”
Paul di Resta says he was struggled with poor start and his few positions going into turn one. The Brit also says Force India need to understand how can improve that going forward.
“I don’t think P12 is a fair reflection of the speed we had in the car today. My race was compromised by a poor start and I lost a few positions going into turn one. I had the same issue in Germany last week so we need to understand how we can improve that going forward because it’s hurting our track position.” Di Resta said.
The first few laps were quite tough but the car came alive after lap four and brought me back into contention. Unfortunately it was impossible to maximize the speed of the car because there was no chance to overtake and once the pit stops were complete it was just a case of bringing the car home.”
