Sept.22 – Force India duo Adrian Sutil and Paul di Resta very optimistic with the sixth place in the constructors’ championship, and the Silverstone based outfit targets keep this position at the end of 2011 season.

The Silverstone-based team started the year with a car that was at heart an evolution of its 2010 machine, but ran a radically changed aerodynamic concept for the first time during practice for the Spanish Grand Prix.

The first half of the season Force India hanging eighth in the constructors’ championship points, ahead of the Spanish GP they are changed aerodynamic concept for the first time in the season, and this concept was testing in the Spanish GP practice session.

After Force India come-back from eighth in the standings before the Monaco Grand Prix to sixth after the Italian Grand Prix.

“Last year, the team was fighting all season to get sixth place and lost it by a point,” di Resta told Autosport.

“We were the chasing ones and now we have caught up and overtaken [Toro Rosso and Sauber]. We have shown good performance, although Sauber were strong in Monza until the cars stopped. We know that this is going to be a fight all the way. Some cars seem to work some places and some don’t. But we have changed our car philosophy, and it’s a philosophy that has got us a lot of points this year and which will work better on the tracks coming up from now.”

The Force India’s speedy Adrian Sutil pointed to Sauber as Force India’s main rival.

Force India now having the stronger car in qualifying, he believes that that the fight among the two outfits in race conditions is close.

“It is tight, so we have to push on,” said Sutil. “We have the beter car in qualifying, but Sauber still looks quite strong in the race. That equals it all out a little bit.
“We have no reason to relax because it is so close. We are one point ahead at the moment, so have to keep pushing to the end.
