Force India still aiming to catch a lot of points – Sutil

Published

on

Aug.03 – The 28-year-old Force India driver Adrian Sutil thinks that the next two grand prix of the F1 World Championship in at Belgian and Italian will be the strongest of the Force India. Sutil qualified a season’s best eighth in German GP and then frequent it in Hungarian GP last weekend before seeing his team-mate Paul di Resta finish seventh in the race.

When asked if he was pleased with the momentum currently with Force India after a cagey start to the 2011 season, Sutil told Autosport: “Absolutely. It’s important for us to see this.

“We planned for a little bit of a difficult start to the season because we changed a few things [on the car] during the winter, and we’re aiming for a strong finish. At the moment we’re on the right way. We’re aiming to catch a lot of points still. Looking to Spa and Monza, these are tracks that favour us. It could get even better. It’s a good sign that our downforce is improving and the general stability [of the car] too. This will help us at Spa. We are still one of the fastest cars in a straight line. The switch of the DRS is very good, so it should be even better at Spa and Monza than at other races.”

The Silverstone based F1 squad Force India presently standing seventh in the Constructors’ World Championship, nine points at the back Sauber and four ahead of Toro Rosso.

“They [Mercedes] are always a hard competitor and are difficult to beat, but we showed it was possible at the Nurburging and again, and we always look towards the front,” he added. But we should not forget about Sauber either. They have a good race pace. It’s quite a good grid and nothing really is different to the few last races [in terms of grid order].”
