Italian GP - Qualifying Results

Results: Di Resta 11th (1:24.163), Sutil 11th (1:24.209).

Not a bad session for Force India! The team had expected to be inside the top 10 but starting just outside in 11th and 12th is not a problem at all as they can now choose their tyres for the race whereas those inside the top ten have to start with the tyres they qualified on.

Paul Di Resta was very unlucky not to not to grab 10th actually; he got knocked out at the end of Q2 by Bruno Senna who was just 0.06seconds quicker! The difference was that Senna had a slipstream from Hamilton on his quick lap according to the Force India radio transmission.

Nevertheless, the team are in a good position for tomorrow and they do usually start very well so if they can avoid any first lap incidents a double points finish is on the cards. Based on the practice sessions yesterday the race pace of Force India and Renault is very simmilar - almost identical! This means that if our two cars can get past Senna at the start we should be able to stay ahead of him =)

It's going to be an exciting race for sure! Can't wait! =D
