Force India targeting fifth in the 2013 F1 Constructors’ Championship



Force India’s Paul di Resta says that team targeting fifth place in the 2013 Formula 1 Constructors’ Championship.

In 2012 they are finalized seventh place in the constructors’ championship 17 points less than Sauber F1 team. Nico Hulkenberg and Paul di Resta took 11th and 14th place in drivers’ championship.

Even though Force India not yet announced their 2013 driver line-up, the Brit Paul di Resta is widely expected to stay with the team for a third season.

Di Resta also believes that team has set a target of fifth place; he’d be content with another improvement on this season.

“We’re hoping to finish fifth overall in the constructors’ championship next season,” di Resta told the Scotsman newspaper.

“Personally, my first objective is to at least get back to sixth. Anything more than that would be a bonus.”

“Obviously I won’t go into specific details, but the car slowly but surely got worse as the season progressed. And we didn’t pick the problem up quick enough. You tend to think these problems will iron themselves out over time, but instead it continued getting worse. It cost us time in Suzuka and in India.” He added.

“We changed the monocoque for Abu Dhabi, but in the end we had to replace the whole chassis, and that cured the problem. Unfortunately, that came right at the end of the season.”
