Sunday Report- F1, F2

Sorry for the delayed Sunday report but here's a brief one:

F1- Sahara Force India, Narain Karthikeyan


Race: Paul Di Resta- P7, Nico Hulkenburg- P8, Narain Karthikeyan- P15

Well, that was indeed a great race in the end for all the fans more so with performances of both the SFI drivers and Narain, all finishing strongly in the race. All the three drivers had to avoid Grosjean car at T1 at the start and everyone came off well from there. After the start Hulk was at P9, Di Resta at P11 while Narain was at P19, relatively good positions after the first lap melee. From then on it was conserving tyres and avoiding all the incidents as strategy took over. Hulk was behind the car of Kimi & Schumacher as Kimi was holding off everyone behind but as he went in for pit stop the other cars behind him went in as well and so Hulk got behind him again. Meanwhile, Di Resta took the advantage and got ahead of this group. From then on it was all saving the tyres till the end which both managed well as Di Resta finished ahead of Hulk getting a strong 10 points when our closest rivals scored none. Also, Hulkenberg got the second fastest laps. As for Karthikeyan it was another strong finish in the race, though he was last he did manage to finish only 2 laps behind the leader in a short track. The car looked good all weekend and interestingly the fastest lap he did was not bad at all.


F2- Parthiva Sureshwaran


Qualifying 2: P11 (1:46.676), Race 2: P12

After not so great results on Staurday, Sunday proved to be better for Parthiva. It was better than Saturday at least. He qualified at a good position at P11 with a good time. In the race he lost a position and thereby ended at P12, not the best effort but decent enough once again. It's tough to see him not do very well in the series, more so because prior to the series he had high hopes from this season. We hope the next races will be great for him.
