Force India driver Paul di Resta believes his team can achieve a strong result at their second home race at Silverstone this weekend.
While the Indian Grand Prix is their home event, Force India’s factory is located directly across the road from the circuit.
“It’s always a highlight of the year,” di Resta says of the British Grand Prix.
“With the way our car is working these tyres at the moment, we are looking really healthy. I believe this car is the best we’ve ever had and everyone in the team is working hard to squeeze even more performance from it.”
“The key for Silverstone is to hopefully get three successful days in a row on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. That’s what we did in Bahrain and it really paid off. If we can do it at Silverstone, then hopefully we can make a big impact on the race.”
Team-mate Adrian Sutil is also optimistic that Force India can perform well at Silverstone.
“It’s fast and flowing, so it’s quite a big change from Monaco and Canada, but I’m confident that we can go there and perform well. I enjoy the high-speed sections and also the newer start of the lap, which definitely makes it easier to overtake compared to the old layout,” he said.
