Force India duo make top ten in both sessions
11 November 2011 – Force India’s Adrian Sutil and Paul di Retsa were encouraged by the pace of their respective cars at the Yas Marina Circuit on Friday, with the pair featuring inside the top ten in both 90 minute sessions. Sutil, who is eager to finalise his plans for 2012, ended up eighth fastest overall, with team-mate di Resta narrowly in arrears.
"We also worked a lot on finding the optimum wing levels and seem to have found a good solution so far. As for the tyres, we did most of the work in the second session to simulate the conditions we will get on Sunday evening."
"But in the second session we started to get on top of those issues and got quite close to a decent set-up. I think we can still make some steps tomorrow and look to find more low-speed stability, but overall we’re not in bad shape."
