Korean GP - Race Results

Results: Di Resta 10th (1point), Sutil 11th.

Well, before the race Adrian Sutil spoke to Martin Brundle (UK TV coverage) and said that he did not want rain which surprised me given Adrian's pace in the wet; and although there were a few spots of rain it didn't really affect Force India's race.

So the team started in 9th and 10th with a split strategy (Di Resta on super-softs, Sutil on softs) however after the first lap Adrian Sutil had been passed by Schumacher which would mean the team were in 9th and 11th.

Meanwhile Toro Rosso were very quick all race, purely because of their speed down the long straight in sector one and for the rest of the race we would be in a tough battle with Red Bull's second team. Ultimately it was a losing battle though, they were just too quick today! Thankfully we are already well clear of them in the constructors championship so them beating us was no major problem.

Both our main championships rivals had dreadful races.

Renault: 13th (Senna) and DNF (Petrov)
Sauber: 15th (Kobayashi) and 16th (Perez)

So no points for our rivals but only one point for us - this now means that we are a little further ahead of Sauber but Renault are now 23pts ahead with just three races to go - it will be VERY tough to catch up to them but we'll give it our best shot - it's looking like we will need a crazy race and a 4th or 5th place for it to happen.

Now the F1 circus heads to the race we have been waiting for all season - the first ever Indian Grand Prix!
