German GP - Practice Three

Results: Sutil 8th (1:32.391), Di Resta 12th (1:32.813), Chandhok 23rd (1:36.959).

Once again Adrian Sutil demonstrated that Force India are "best of the rest" with a great 8th place! Paul Di Resta lost about half a second on his quick lap and could only classify 12th - but it's better that happens in practice rather than in qualifying =)

Meanwhile, Karun Chandhok appears to be struggling to get to grips with the Team Lotus car, complaining about the balance and the brakes - it was always going to be hard for him given it's his first race of the season. Towards the end of the session he lost the rear end of the car, span across the gravel and stopped on track - no visible damage though. He was 1.6seconds down on teammate Kovalainen.

We can assume Chandhok will be hoping for rain in qualifying, and there is a high chance of that (around 70%) ... Adrian Sutil would also benefit if it rains, he has a lot of experience around this circuit from more junior racing series.

Can't wait for qualifying! As always you'll be able to catch all the news from qualifying right here! =)
