Force India keen to surprise again

User Rating: / 0
Force India believes it could produce another star showing at this weekend's Canadian Grand Prix. Until Kimi Raikkonen rammed Adrian Sutil out of the Monaco race, Force India was on course for a remarkable fourth place, thanks to a fine wet-weather drive by the young German and sharp strategy by the team.

With the squad not yet on the pace of its rivals, Force India currently has to rely on unusual circumstances to get amongst the points-paying positions.

But team boss Colin Kolles reckons Montreal – with its reputation for quirky and chaotic races – could provide another great opportunity for Force India to shine.

"The team were all frustrated with the [Monaco] result, but there are 12 races and therefore 12 chances left that we now need to concentrate on," Kolles said.

"Canada, like Monaco, could be a good race for us with all teams developing special aero and mechanical packages that will only be used in this one race.

"With safety car periods and rain also a possibility you could see some surprises too."

He also warned Sutil not to get carried away with what he achieved in Monaco.

"Adrian's confidence is now high, and I think he will carry this forward, but we need to focus on this weekend and not let the highs of Monaco cloud what we have to do here," said Kolles.

Team co-owner Vijay Mallya added that Force India must get itself into a position where it doesn't have to rely on unusual circumstances, but for the time being should ensure it gets the most from every opportunity that comes its way.

"What we need to do now is to show that we can do this kind of race in every event, not just if the exceptional circumstances allow," Mallya said.

"I am sure that, given this kind of confidence and motivation that is now surging through the team, other great performances will follow, but in Canada we have to do what we can: stay together, keep it together and focus on getting the best result possible."
