British GP practice quotes: Force India

Paul di Resta - 13th/4th: "After such a wet morning it was nice to get a run in the dry this afternoon. It was pretty productive and the car is working well so hopefully we can carry the speed into tomorrow. We didn't run very much this morning, but with dry conditions expected for the weekend I think we've learned as much as anyone. The focus tonight is to keep improving because there's still some more speed in the car. We also need to remember that it's likely to be quite a lot hotter tomorrow so it's hard to predict how that will impact on things."

Adrian Sutil - 16th/8th: "We looked quite good today. There are areas to improve, especially the performance on the medium tyres, but the car is working well on the hard compound. I'm happy with the balance so the main thing we need to work on is going through the tyre data because I don't think we need to change too much on the car set-up."

Jakob Andreasen, Chief Race Engineer: "Despite the wet weather this morning we made the most of the afternoon. There were a couple of new developments on the car and we managed to get most of the information we needed. We also ran the hard compound prototype tyres on both cars early in the afternoon session before we focussed on the regular compounds. Both Paul and Adrian managed to complete representative runs on each compound and we have all the data we need to make the decisions tonight. For tonight we will turn our attention to making sure we can qualify well and understanding how to get the tyres in the optimum working window."
