Abu Dhabi GP - Practice Three Results

Results: Hulkenberg 5th (1:42.750), di Resta 10th (1:43.338), Karthikeyan 24th (1:47.032).

After yesterday's sessions, several members of the Sahara Force India team stated that they needed to do a lot of work to catch up on those ahead. Whatever they have done has worked brilliantly as both cars have seemingly transformed from midfield runners to upper-midfield runners.

Nico Hulkenberg did a cracking lap to finish P5 overall, making SFI the quickest team after McLaren & Red Bull. As for Paul di Resta, he didn't manage to get a clear lap in, however his best sector times (on separate laps) indicate he can go just as quick as Nico - he just needs to bring it together on one lap.

Credit to the team personnel for their impressive work though!

Meanwhile, Narain Karthikeyan seems to be struggling this weekend - perhaps due to missing FP1. He was 0.478 seconds slower than his teammate. On the plus side however, the team have stated that the brake cooling problems that plagued them in India have now been fixed.

Qualifying should be very interesting!
