Force India hopeful of good show in 2nd race
Force India are a bit wary of tough weather conditions ahead of the Malaysian Grand Prix.
Sepang: Force India are a bit wary of tough weather conditions ahead of the Malaysian Grand Prix but since Adrian Sutil came up with one of his best performances here last season, they are hoping for a good result again.
Sutil had secured 10 points for his side with a top-5 finish at the Sepang International Circuit last year.
"Malaysia was a great race last year, one of my best results, so I am really looking forward to racing there again.
It's a challenging circuit and with a good balance on the car you can definitely enjoy driving it.
"It is also usually an interesting weekend from a strategy point of view because you don't know how the rain is going to affect the teams, so it is challenging, but exciting too," Sutil said.
Vijay Mallya, chairman and team principal, was confident that they have car to perform under tough conditions.
"I think we have every reason to be confident, but the weather often plays a big role over the Malaysian weekend.
Adrian drove a great race there last year and brought home 10 championship points, so we have something good to build on.
"The VJM04 has shown us that we are capable of being in the points already, so let's hope we have a clean race this week with no incidents," Mallya said.
Paul Di Resta, who scored points on his debut in Formula One 2011 curtain-raising Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne, is aiming to continue with the good form.
"I participated in FP1 last year, but did not complete a great deal of laps. I really enjoyed the track, although the heat and humidity is much tougher than anywhere else we drive on the calendar. It will be interesting to see how we perform there and I am very much looking forward to my second race with the team," he said.
Force India had secured a double finish with points in the season-opening race at Melbourne.
