Force India has been given in the Grand Prix of Great Britain a step forward in its goal of achieving the fourth place in the Constructors ‘ World. Sergio Pérez and Nico Hülkenberg have concluded in sixth and seventh position, amassing a total of 14 points that brings them to only 19 of Williams. In addition, it offers the best result for the team angloindia at Silverstone, a circuit that is located only a few metres from your seat.

Sergio Perez was one of the last drivers to switch to intermediate tyres, on lap 8, a strategy that paid off. Ten laps later, with the track drying out, he returned to the pits to mount the medium compound with the one that would go to the end of the race. Ahead of him, only the Mercedes and Red Bull. But the mexican, as many other pilots, went off track in turn 1, which made him fall into the clutches of Kimi Räikkönen, which ended up taking her to the fifth position.

I Think that without that outlet I would have been able to maintain fifth place. There, I thought my career was over. Although I was able to save the situation, I did a plane and that I hurt the rest of the race. I Tried to hold off Räikkönen, but when he passed me I could take the things with calm and care for the tires. The relay with the media was very long, was risky, as the degradation was high, but in the end gave result and score as many points compensates for the disappointment of a week ago.

, Nico Hülkenberg, but also celebrated the good day team, she regretted not having been able to get a better result in individual, something that is attributed to the appearance of the safety car, virtual.

Obviously, it is a good result for the team,but I feel frustrated because the circumstances have not played to my favor. The VSC made me gain a lot of cars when I had already changed to intermediate and then I got stuck many times behind Felipe Massa, despite the fact that it was much faster than him. There was only a narrow dry line, with a lot of water out of it, and it was not easy to attempt a maneuver. I’m not at all happy, but happy with the performance of the car and for having achieved a good number of points.
