Malaysian GP - Race Results

Results: Di Resta 7th (6 points), Hulkenberg 9th (2 points), Karthikeyan 21st.

Well that was an eventful race!

I was keeping an eye on the Sahara Force India cars from the start and i'm sure that Nico Hulkenberg almost lost control of his car before he'd been crossed the start finish line; i will need to check the replay to confirm this however. He did manage to keep control though and credit where credit is due, both drivers drove superbly well today! They both combated numerous pit stops, a lack of grip, rain, and sometimes completely insane circumstances to bring their cars home in the points. Infact Sahara Force India were the ONLY team to have both cars in the points today! :-)

As for Karthikeyan he will also be hugely delighted with his days work despite having two collisions (with Button and Vettel, both not his fault). An inspired tyre choice at the start saw him running up in 10th place after the red flag was thrown due to the rain, epic stuff! Eventually the Indian driver ended up 21st, just over 13seconds ahead of his teammate de la Rosa, what a wonderful effort! :-)

A great day for the Indian contingent in the end - we'll have more technical analysis for you tomorrow!

Later today however, head over to our facebook page where we will be switching to the new timeline feature and we'll have a new cover photo - we hope you like it!
