Italian GP - Practice Three Results

Results: di Resta 3rd (1:24.849), Hulkenberg 9th (1:25.289), Karthikeyan 23rd (1:28.035).

A great session for all three of our drivers in FP3.

Most of the session was focused on hard tyre pace (race pace) and Sahara Force India didn't seem as competitive as yesterday, i suspect they were carrying more fuel though - no need to worry!

The car showed it definitely still has qualifying pace; Paul di Resta managed to grab 3rd place! His first sector time was awesome, a 27.3, equal with Lewis Hamilton who topped the session.

Nico Hulkenberg was around half a second back from Paul di Resta, but the German got held up on his quick laps; first by Karthikeyan and then by one of the Marussia drivers. Even with traffic he still managed P9 though!

Karthikeyan himself had a decent session, around 0.3 seconds ahead of HRT teammate, Pedro de la Rosa. Although i do suspect that Pedro didn't get a clean quick lap in. Nevertheless, Narain has his best chance all season to beat his teammate in qualifying this weekend.

Best of luck to all our drivers ahead of what should be a very interesting qualifying session! :-)
