Indian GP - Race Results

Results: Sutil 9th (2points), Di Resta 13th, Karthikeyan 17th.

Well it wasn't a classic race, but it was an Indian race! An Indian race that happened with no problems for the circuit so i think it's safe to say the Buddh International Circuit is a success! =)

Meanwhile on track for the Indian contingent it was a mixed day.

Force India appeared to lack pace at some points during the race (inconsistency) but strangely so did everyone else! Adrian just lost out to Alguersuari's high straight line speed Toro Rosso compared to where he started and so finished P9 - a good effort! On the other hand, Paul Di Resta decided to go for a risky strategy of starting on the slower, harder tyre but it would only work if there was an early safety car and there wasn't unfortunately - that ruined his race, P13 for him.

Looking elsewhere Indian driver Narain Karthikeyan had a wonderful race and pretty much got the maximum he could out of this weekend. He finished ahead of the Lotus of Jarno Trulli and also ahead of his teammate Daniel Ricciardo - by a massive margin aswell ... 31.8seconds! Infact Narain was only 0.5seconds behind D'Ambrosio in 16th at the end of the race. Surely this performance from Narain must give HRT something to think about in terms of driver line-up for the next race.

Look out for Darshan Chokhani's full race weekend report in the middle of next week =)
