Malaysian GP - Practice Three Results

Results: Hulkenberg 14th (1:38.285), Di Resta 17th (1:38.794), Karthikeyan 24th (1:43.378).

A solid session for the Sahara Force India drivers once again with no real problems and 34 laps completed.

Hulkenberg finished ahead of Di Resta by half a second making it 5-1 to Nico in practices this season so far; although neither driver managed to set a lap which had personal bests in all three sectors so there is much more time in the car yet. Those quicker laps were set near the end of the session; at the start of the session the team were concentrating on a long runs and they made some setup changes to the cars. Both drivers gave very positive feedback about the changes made and so things are looking quite promising, at least for the race!

Meanwhile Narain Karthikeyan also had no issues, thankfully for him, and finished at the back a whole second down on teammate de la Rosa. Given that it's usually been quite close between the two drivers upto this point it is safe to suggest that Narain made an error on his quickest lap on the soft tyres.

Things are looking up for both our national team and national driver, we're hopeful of a good qualifying, it will be exciting for sure! :-)
