Indian GP - Practice Two Results

Results: Sutil 7th (1:27.316), Di Resta 9th (1:27.853), Karthikeyan 24th (1:32.824).

No problems with the track in FP2 and the Buddh International Circuit is so far very good!

The two Force India's appear to have very solid pace this weekend! Having said that Paul Di Resta appears to be struggling for pace in comparison to teammate Adrian Sutil. It is our understanding that Paul would not prefer this type of circuit with lots of mini chicanes in sector two but there is no reason that he can't improve and be matching Adrian by qualifying.

One thing that could really benefit Force India this weekend in their optimistic quest for P5 in the constructors is that several rivals have grid penalties. Petrov (Renault) will be demoted 5places for causing a collision at the last race and both Hamilton (McLaren) and Perez (Sauber) will be demoted 3places for ignoring yellow flags in FP1.

Meanwhile Narain Karthikeyan is battling hard with his teammate this weekend - in FP1 Narain was on top but in this session Ricciardo got the better of him but by less than a tenth of a second!

Now we are looking forward to FP3 and qualifying tomorrow =)

  2. Presuming all three of our drivers want to stay at Force India; i personally would keep things as they are with Adrian and Paul as main drivers ... why change something if things aren't broken?
