Belgian GP - Race Results

Results: Hulkenberg 4th (12 points), di Resta 10th (1 point), Karthikeyan DNF.

A FANTASTIC day for Sahara Force India!

Benefiting from chaos at the start, the two SFI drivers slipped down the inside of turn one on the opening lap to be P3 & P4 during a safety car period. From this point on i knew it would be a great day, as the car was setup for race pace not qualifying pace as our rivals chose to do.

Hulkenberg did a great job to bring the car home in P4, with good defensive driving from Webber and then later Massa. As for di Resta, he had a KERS failure early on so wasn't able to match Nico. Nevertheless he still grabbed a points finish, great effort :-)

As for Narain Karthikeyan, he was running well, ahead of his teammate, until he made a driver error. Touching the grass with his rear wheel and sliding off the track into the barriers. Thankfully, he is okay.

More analysis later, let's enjoy the SFI 13-point haul! :-)
