Brazilian GP - Practice Three Results

Results: Sutil 6th (1:13.113), Di Resta 9th (1:13.419).

A quite brilliant session for the two Force India's which once again demonstrates just how quick the team is this weekend.

Sutil drove a good lap to finish the session 6th ahead of both Mercedes cars and Felipe Massa's Ferrari. Di Resta was 3tenths slower than Adrian but still managed to beat Massa. Both cars were within a second of the fastest time set by Vettel. It's interesting to note that Adrian did that best time with a different front wing to what he used during the rest of the session - was it a developmental part? Unusually so close to qualifying, all teams were trialling new things. Paul Di Resta was trying out different flaps, known as gurney flaps, on the rear wing.
 

There is a 90% of rain in the race tomorrow so it will be interesting to see if the drivers go for a dry or wet setup in qualifying (once they take to the track in qualifying they can not change their setup until after the race has begun).

Meanwhile Nico Hulkenberg did something different in FP3 and was in a commentary role for BBC Radio Five Live (UK coverage).

We now look forward to qualifying in just under a couple of hours time!
