German GP - Practice Three Results

Results: Hulkenberg 12th (1:17.033), di Resta 13th (1:17.148), Karthikeyan 23rd (1:20.741).

What we learned from that session is that it's still mighty close! 1.1s between 1st and 13th - one mistake will ruin qualifying.

It's worth noting that these positions for the Sahara Force India boys are not representative, they both didn't manage quick laps due to the heavy rain at the end of the session. Infact, the rain was so heavy that it's probably not going to fully dry out by qualifying, even if the rain does stop (which is unlikely).

Q3 for both cars will be the aim for the team, but they will settle for just one driver in the top ten. On a side note, Nico Hulkenberg had a DRS problem during that session, but it should be fixed by qualifying :-)

Meanwhile Narain Karthikeyan was 23rd, but struggling in comparison to his teammate, de la Rosa. The Indian was 1s behind the Spaniard who classified 20th. Maybe Narain has some car issue as that is a very big gap to someone in the same car ... let's hope the pace is back for qualifying!
