European GP - Practice Two Results

Results: Hulkenberg 2nd (1:39.465), di Resta 6th (1:39.700), Karthikeyan 23rd (1:44.201).

Last time out in Canada, post-FP2, i said that i thought it was the most promising Friday that Sahara Force India had ever had. Unfortunately due to rapidly degrading tyres, not much was made of that pace in the race.

However i think today's sessions have been even more impressive. The laptimes have been good on both compounds of tyre, both in terms of wear and pace! I've gathered quite a bit of data from today and i'm going to spend the next few hours looking through it and matching it up with some inside information i have from the team. I'll be posting an article later today when i've analysed everything - there will be some very interesting conclusions i reckon; it's an article you will want to make sure you read :-)

As for Narain Karthikeyan, he was 23rd ahead of his teammate, de la Rosa, who crashed out. Unfortunately for Narain there was a massive 1.2s gap to the Marussia of Charles Pic ahead; perhaps the Indian driver had some issue with his car? We'll let you know when we find out.
