    F1 Will Be Successful in India ?

    Keep an eye on Sahara Force India as Di Resta and Sutil will do some wonders. This whole year they have been very competitive but in last few laps they were forced beyond top 10 (point scoring position). If both can finish under 10 that’s super awesome.

    I pity for Karan Chandok, who helped the Indian F1 track but hasn’t got a car to run here this year.

    So finally Sutil has finished under top 10 racers and got 2 points for Sahara Force India, Its so good.
