European GP - Practice Two

Results: Sutil 11th (1:39.626), Di Resta 14th (1:40.363), Karthikeyan 23rd (1:46.906).

Once again a solid job by Sutil to grab 11th place. Force India appear to be best of the rest behind the top five teams so are in a seemingly strong position this weekend! Di Resta's car was damaged by Hulkenberg in FP1 and it took a while to repair it ... nevertheless the Force India mechanics did a great job to get Paul out for the final 15minutes of the session. Considering Paul has only completed seven laps this weekend he has done well to finish the session P14, just seven tenths of a second down on Adrian (which can be attributed to the lack of running).

Karthikeyan finished in 23rd place ahead of Jamie Alguersuari who failed to set a laptime due to a suspected gearbox issue. Much to his disappointment Narain is 2.5seconds slower than his teammate and must have some kind of issue on the car as up to this point both Narain and teammate Liuzzi have been almost evenly matched. More news about Karthikeyan's problem when we get it.

UPDATE: Karthikeyan had a gearbox issue towards the end of the session hence his laptime compared to his teammates is unrepresentative. To view quotes from all drivers visit the F1 website here.
