Mallya delighted with double points finish
27 May 2012 – Force India delivered an extremely strong Monaco race to score a total of ten points, with Paul di Resta and Nico Hülkenberg both benefitting from others’ misfortunates and reaping the rewards of an effective strategy to finish seventh and eighth.
“A very enjoyable Monaco Grand Prix and I am delighted to see both Sahara Force Indias well inside the points,” Mallya, Team Principal and Managing Director and whose huge yacht is docked in the harbour, commented after the race.
“Paul drove a very strong race, making up seven places on his grid position and managing the tyres perfectly. Nico was running the reverse strategy to Paul, which also worked out well, and means we leave here with ten important points.
“Now we look forward to the next race in Canada where we hope to continue our run of points finishes.”
Last year in Canada, di Resta knocked off his front wing by hitting Nick Heidfeld, with then team-mate Adrian Sutil also running into trouble and failing to score.
