Sahara Force India F1 Silverstone qualifying review

29.06.2013: Formula 1 Santander British Grand Prix, Qualifying 2013

 Formula 1 Santander British Grand Prix, Qualifying 2013


 
Sahara Force India delivered a strong showing at its local track as Paul Di Resta qualified in fifth place for the British Grand Prix with Adrian Sutil in seventh.
 

P5        Paul Di Resta   VJM06-04

Q1:       1:32.062
Q2:       1:31.291
Q3:       1:30.736

 
Paul:
“I’m over the moon with the qualifying result and I think the whole team can feel very satisfied with fifth on the grid. The morning practice session was quite difficult so it feels great to come through and end up just behind two Mercedes and two Red Bulls.


This track takes a lot of commitment and you need to build up your speed, but I think we saved our best till last – and that’s when it mattered. For tomorrow our tyre wear looks healthy and we’ve given ourselves a good opportunity to get in some clean air during the race.


I will sleep well tonight and hope that we can have a straightforward race, and come away with lots of points.”
 


P7        Adrian Sutil      VJM06-03
Q1:       1:32.002
Q2:       1:31.079
Q3:       1:30.908
 

Adrian:
“Seventh place is a great result today. The car was not easy to drive this morning, but we made some improvements before qualifying and found more speed with each session. If we can do our homework tonight then we have the potential to have a great race.


There are still some unknowns with the tyres over long runs because I haven’t really done more than ten laps on a set of tyres, but I feel comfortable on both compounds. So we can be happy with the result, but we need to concentrate on tomorrow because that’s what counts.


In terms of strategy we need to keep an open mind and have several options going into the race so that we can react as the race develops.”
 


Dr Vijay Mallya, Team Principal & Managing Director


“I am delighted with today’s qualifying result. The sun was shining, the grandstands were full, and we put on a fantastic show. Fifth place for Paul at his home Grand Prix is a tremendous effort, especially on this high-speed track, which has not been our strongest race in previous years.


Adrian’s seventh place confirms just how competitive we are this weekend and we know that we have good race pace. For tomorrow it’s important that we maximise these starting positions and hopefully give our supporters and partners something to celebrate at our local race.”
