Belgian GP - Qualifying Results

Results: di Resta 10th (will start 9th)(1:48.890), Hulkenberg 12th (will start 11th)(1:48.855), Karthikeyan 24th (1:54.989).

Decent results for Sahara Force India!

Nico Hulkenberg did a good job and only just missed out on Q3 by 0.075seconds, unlucky really! Paul di Resta did well to grab a spot in Q3 but during the final session he didn't quite maximise his laptime. Although it didn't matter in the end, the optimal lap still would have been P10.

This is going to be a very interesting race, all our close rivals have gone for a higher downforce setup so are much quicker in sector two and over one lap. Over a race distance Sahara Force India should be quicker and definitely though sectors one and three the team will be quicker with the low downforce package.

Note: Both Paul & Nico gain one grid spot due to a 5-place grid penalty for Webber.

At the back, Narain Karthikeyan once again was unable to match teammate de la Rosa. In fact he must have had a problem, he was a huge 1.9seconds behind the Spaniard ... at least he made it inside the 107% rule!

I'm now very excited for tomorrow! We'll have more analysis later :-)
