New Delhi: Sahara Force India’s driver Paul Di Resta who finished amongst points in the Monaco Grand Prix, and now has 21 points six less than the last year feels that the team has improved and there are all possibilities that they would get stronger by the second half of the season.
“I think we have demonstrated that we can carry on where we left off last year and fight for points everywhere. The teams around us are all strong, but we have shown our consistency and can compete with tams like Lotus, Williams and Sauber, who are all looking competitive,” said Resta.
Meanwhile talking about the upcoming Canadian GP, he said that they are ready for the challenge and hope to carry their momentum from the last race to this race. “It’s quite an unusual track with some long straights and you need good top speed to be competitive. We run a special low-downforce package, similar to the one we use for Monza, so the car feels quite different and a bit loose without all the downforce. It always takes a few laps to get used to things again,” added the Scot.
Nico Hulkerberg echoed his teammates view and said that he was certain that things can only get better for them in the coming times "We're not too far behind Sauber and Williams after six races and we saw last year how well the team was able to develop so I’m optimistic we can do the same this year," he said.
Meanwhile Team Principal and co owner Vijay Mallya said that they have had bad and good experiences in the Canadian GP but hopefully things would remain only better for them this year. “We've had good and bad times in Montreal in recent years. We were competitive there in 2010, but last year I believe we threw away some certain points.Hopefully we'll redeem ourselves this year,” said the liquor baron.
