Indian GP - Qualifying Results

Results: Sutil 8th (No time set), Di Resta 13th (1:26.503, will start 12th), Karthikeyan 22nd (1:30.238, will start 23rd).

Well i mentioned in my FP3 report that i thought Di Resta was slower than Adrian around this circuit and i was right. Adrian made it into Q3 whereas Paul didn't - nevertheless a good effort by the Force India drivers!

Di Resta did qualify 13th but will start 12th, benefiting from a 5-place grid penalty to Petrov.

Things are looking good in the teams battle for P5 in the championship and a double points finish is on the cards tomorrow! =)

Meanwhile Narain Karthikeyan qualified in 22nd place, ahead of the two Virgin cars and just 2hundredths behind teammate Ricciardo ... a great effort from the Indian! Unfortunately Karthikeyan does have a 5-place grid penalty for impeding Michael Schumacher in qualifying and that means he will start 23rd (still ahead of Glock who was outside the 107% rule but races with the stewards' discretion).

  1. We have great chance for podium this week. Sutil r in good peace. Also if u see if some podium contender having less grip issue also if somebody miss racing line he will almost get out of race and make way for sutil for podium. I dont think double point is possible.

  3. A podium is possible but perhaps too optimistic, but never say never! A double points finish will be the aim!

    Force India will be hoping Sauber and Toro Rosso do not score tomorrow =)
