Sutil banks on updates in car for good show in Canada GP
Montreal: Force India driver Adrian Sutil
is relying on the new updates, including the blown diffuser,
in his car for a good result in Sunday`s Canadian Grand Prix.
Last year both the Force India cars had made it to the Q3
with Vitantonio Liuzzi qualifying fifth on the grid and Sutil
The team, though, could earn only three points and Sutil
is hoping for a better performance this season at the circuit,
which he terms as his favourite.
"We are still trying to improve our upgrade package that
we took to Barcelona. It is not easy to make it work, the
blown diffuser, at the moment, the way it should be. In Monaco
I think we ran it for the first time in the race. We are not
sure if it really was a big advantage but I am sure it was a
little. But there is still more to come.”
"We need now just time on the circuit to understand a lot
of things and we also have some other updates on the car, not
only the diffuser, especially for this race here. It should be
good for us," Sutil said at the pre-race press conference.
Sutil said the team was keen that it improves in
qualifying session and is hopeful of doing that, saying that
the low downforce circuit here suits them.
"We have a big straight-line speed. It is a very fast car
on the straights. This circuit has fast straights and a few
slow speed chicanes and hairpins so it is not such an
aerodynamic circuit here.”
"Last year was a very good performance here and very
strong qualifying with both cars. Hopefully it will be a
little bit better here as qualifying is our main issue. The
race is always a bit better but still we want to be somewhere
else in the field," he said.
