Canadian GP qualifying quotes: Force India Saturday, June 8th 2013, 20:11 GMT


Adrian Sutil - 8th: "I'm quite happy with eighth place. It was a tough qualifying session and very hard to judge the conditions. Some parts of the track were wet and other areas were dry, so it was difficult to know how much to push. I also struggled to get the heat in the tyres, so it was not easy to get it altogether for one lap. The most important lap for me was just after the red flag: we all queued up at the end of the pit lane - a bit like a race start – and I knew I had one chance to make Q2. Fortunately it worked out well for me."

Paul di Resta - 17th: "It's very frustrating to be starting in P17 so we need to sit down and analyse exactly what happened. Something went wrong with the seamless shift software during my first run in Q1 and when I came in the team tried to fix it. It was only a small issue, but we lost valuable time trying to find a solution. Meanwhile the track was getting faster and faster. By the time I had got back out it was raining again and therefore we missed the track at its best. There's not much you can do in that situation, but it's a massive disappointment given how competitive the car was yesterday. I'll try and take the positives because you can overtake on this track and the car is strong. We need to come up with a masterplan tonight and I will be pushing hard tomorrow."

Robert Fernley, Deputy Team Principal: "Another excellent effort by Adrian to qualify eighth given how difficult the conditions were today. He was struggling to get the intermediates to work, but he delivered some excellent laps just when it mattered to secure his place in the top ten. Paul's session was disrupted by a small software issue, which meant he missed out on the optimal track conditions and couldn't show his true potential. When he did get out at the end of Q1, his best lap was totally compromised by Rosberg, who spun in front of him. It proved very costly and has given Paul a lot of work to do in the race. We know he will keep his head down tomorrow and with dry weather expected he can hopefully demonstrate the inherent pace of the car."

Canadian GP: Force India race quotes Sunday, June 9th 2013, 21:49 GMT


Paul di Resta - 7th: "To finish the race in seventh having started 17th is a great result and a top job by the team. I didn't manage to get any long run data on Friday so it feels extra sweet to make this one-stop strategy work with a very long stint on the mediums. It also feels good to come back so strong after a difficult qualifying session. The tyres lasted very well, the lap times were competitive and the team told me it was my decision about when to make my stop. As soon as I felt the tyres starting to drop off, I came in. Then it was a case of looking after the supersofts for the final few laps."

Adrian Sutil - 10th: "That race was quite an adventure so it's good to come away with a point given everything that happened. I had a spin when I tried to overtake Bottas, which cost me quite a few positions and I was lucky nobody hit me when I was in the middle of the track. I dropped back and the pack was bunched together, which is when Maldonado ran into the back of me and damaged my rear wing. Even with all those things I was running in eighth until the drive-through penalty. I don't think it was a fair penalty because I too had to lap so many cars today and it sometimes took one or two laps, and that's normal for this circuit. The penalty cost me two positions and three points."

Robert Fernley - deputy team principal: "It's great to see both our cars in the points at our 100th Grand Prix. It brings our tally to 51 points and strengthens our fifth position in the championship. Paul showed his fighting spirit with a remarkable drive to seventh with just one stop. The car had great pace and he looked after his medium compound tyres extremely well. I don't think anybody thought there were 56 laps in those tyres but he pulled it out of the bag. Adrian's afternoon was rather more eventful, but it was a disappointment to pick up the penalty in the closing laps so it's something we need to review. Overall I think we should be pleased with the outcome after a challenging weekend. The car remains competitive and we can hopefully carry our form into our local race at Silverstone at the end of the month."

Ottima gara di di Resta, meno per Sutil, comunque ottima vettura.

La macchina è molto veloce e sicuramente la più competitiva fra i team di media fascia.Inoltre la gara di Di Resta è stata ottima(senza nulla togliere a quella di Sutil).

Il 5° posto in campionato finora è il miglior piazzamento di questa scuderia.

E oltretutto sono persino davanti alla Mclaren.

Direi che è un piazzamento meritatissimo:spero continuino su questa linea.
