No points for Force India at Turkish GP
Adrian Sutil, who started 12th on the grid, finished 13th while Paul Di Resta retired after the 44th lap.

Istanbul: Force India failed to finish amongst the points for the second time in a row while Hispania's Narain Karthikeyan completed the race ahead of his teammate Vitanotnio Liuzzi at 21st position in the Formula One (F1) Turkish Grand Prix here on Sunday.

Red Bull recorded their maiden one-two of the season as Sebastian Vettel raced to his third victory, a comfortable 8.8 secs ahead of his teammate Mark Webber. Fernando Alonso came third for Ferrari's first podium finish this season.

Force India was looking for points after a decent qualifying Saturday when its drivers Adrian Sutil and Paul di Resta were the 12th and 13th fastest on the challenging Istanbul Park circuit.

But things did not go according to plan. Di Resta's race ended on the 44th lap, right after his fourth pit stop, while Sutil crossed the chequered flag with a lap down at 13th position.

The Vijay Mallya owned outfit is at eighth place in the constructor's championship with four points from four races.

Hispania were once again the slowest on the grid but both Karthikeyan and Liuzzi managed to complete the 58-lap race.

It was Karthiyean's best result in four races as he finished three laps down, ahead of his teammate, who was 22nd. Liuzzi and Karthikeyan started the race at 20th and 22nd positions but a long pit stop by the Italian pushed him behind his teammate.
