Is Sahara Force India ready to encounter the challenge?

The team principal Vijay Mallya stated on Monday that presently Sahara Force India will not depend just on the wet weather conditions to disappoint the big teams as the car is sufficiently competitive in all conditions.

Force India occupied the fifth position in the constructors standings, behind Mercedes and ahead of Sauber and McLaren in the Chinese Grand Prix held on Sunday.

Mallya claimed that his team's assessment in comparison with the opponents can be done better following races in China and Bahrain. He explained that China has always exhibited spectacular races and it’s not unusual to experience some wet weather, but they are aware that both their drivers and the VJM06 are at ease in all conditions. Previously, they used to expect for rain as their only chance to displease the front-runners, but now they are more competitive in all conditions. The liquor baron added that the next two weekends, with races in China and Bahrain, will set them in a position to judge where they actually stand as compared to their opponents.

Paul di Resta asserted that it is still early part of the season hence team's assessment should be delayed. The Scot added that it is essential not to get carried away and continue to do their job at each race. They are assumed to be in a good position at present, but none can say where they will be compared to their oppositions following the next two races.

He is well aware of the fact that McLaren are a very tough team and they will develop well, so all they can do is continue pushing hard to attempt and stay in advance of them. They have been doing a good work more than many people expected but there is a long way to go.

The second driver Adrian Sutil was confident of bringing a good outcome on Sunday. The German disclosed that the layout is not too different from Sepang, so it should suit them again and he hopes that they can be strong there. The other teams will not rest so they need to keep pushing hard and keep up this energy.
