Di Resta struggling to get the best out of car

Force India team principal Dr Vijay Mallya was particularly grateful to Hulkenberg for bringing home those four points at the line.

"It means we have scored points in the last six races – that's every race since the summer break," he said. "I'm delighted to see Sahara Force India score points at our home race – for the second year in a row."

It also inches the team slightly closer to Sauber and Mercedes ahead of them in the constructors championship standings, after both those teams failed to score any points at all in India.

"These are important points for our fight in the constructors' championship and we will continue to push very hard in the remaining three races," Dr Mallya said. "Overall it's been another great Indian Grand Prix. The circuit is a magnificent venue for motor racing and the Buddh International Circuit has once again delivered a fantastic event which we have all enjoyed immensely."

@rest in pieces give the guy a break. He has shown he has plenty of talent. Even though I'm a fan I'll be first to admit it that he has had a fairly lack luster few races & hasn't been as strong as I thought he would be this year. He had spent 4 years in touring car racing before F1, it'll probably take him a bit more time to reach his potential compared to Hulkenberg. He's still only 5 points behind his team mate, that's hardly too shaby!
