Force India drivers Nico Hulkenberg and Sergio Perez believe that the squad will make progress in the race, after both were eliminated during Q2 at the Singapore Grand Prix.
Hulkenberg will start the race from 11th position, one row ahead of team-mate Perez.
"It’s a bit disappointing not to make the top 10, but at the same time I’m confident we can have a good race from P11," said Hulkenberg.
"For whatever reason we didn’t have the harmony or performance we expected and I wasn’t as happy with the balance as I was yesterday.
"I was chasing the set-up in final practice and we made some changes before qualifying, but we still couldn’t find the sweet spot. The car was quite snappy with some oversteer and it wasn’t easy to get a tidy lap together."
Perez says he was compromised by the yellow flags during the closing stages of Q2, when Carlos Sainz Jr. hit the wall at Turn 19.
"The yellow flag at the end of Q2 meant I couldn’t finish what would have been my best lap, which is a shame, but sometimes things don’t go your way," he explained.
"I don’t think P13 reflects our true pace because we’ve done a very good job so far this weekend and we are continuing to take big steps forward."
