Sutil pleased to be in top-10 in drivers standings
Sao Paulo: Adrian Sutil could not have signed off the season in a better way as he achieved both the goals set for the Brazilian Grand Prix -- beating a Mercedes car and finishing ninth in drivers` championship.
Sutil finished sixth, ahead of Mercedes Nico Rosberg, after passing him in lap number 50 of the 71-lap race.
Force India finished sixth, one position better than the last year, in the constructors championship ahead of Sauber.
"I`m really happy about the result today. It completes a great weekend where everything went to plan. I had a good feeling in all the sessions and the team did a brilliant job to give me such a good car today. We also made the right calls with the strategy because we knew there was a chance to beat Mercedes, and that`s exactly what we did.”
"So I`m very happy with my sixth place -it`s the best way to end the year and it also means that I move up to ninth place in the drivers` championship, which was my aim," Sutil, who was 11th in drivers` standing last season, said.
Paul Di Resta, who was eighth in the race, was also happy to have done well in his rookie season.
