Bahrain GP - Qualifying Results

Results: di Resta 10th (1:33.510), Hulkenberg 13th (1:33.807), Karthikeyan 24th (1:38.314).

Well that was a pretty good session for Sahara Force India in all honesty.

Q3 for Paul di Resta with an absolutely fantastic lap at the end of Q2, 0.3 seconds quicker than Hulkenberg - amazing considering Nico's lap was already pretty good :-)

So P10 for Paul, and the ability to choose his starting tyre tomorrow, he'll be delighted. As for Nico, P13, a decent effort, could have been P12 - Kobayashi was just 0.001 seconds faster though!

Interestingly FOM (Formula One Management) did not actually show Sahara Force India at all during qualifying apart from when Webber past di Resta on a hot lap. Many people will start saying it's because the team did not take part in FP2 yesterday but i'd guess that's just a factually incorrect conspiracy theory and it was actually a co-incidence.

Meanwhile, Narain Karthikeyan struggled to get close to his teammate like in FP3 and will start at the back. He was 0.4 seconds than Charles Pic in 23rd. Actually Narain may be promoted to 23rd depending on what the stewards do about Vergne (who qualified 19th). The French driver passed a red light and missed going into the weighbridge when requested to do so. Let's wait and see.

Now we look forward to the post-Saturday quotes which we'll post as soon as possible.
