Vijay Mallya, owner of Force India, has expressed his disappointment with his team's finish at the Silverstone circuit on Sunday, saying that the events at the race 'compromised strategies.'
Despite showing a lot of promise in the buil-up to the British Grand Prix, both Adrian Sutil (11th) and Paul di Resta (15th) failed to score points. " Today (Sunday) simply was not our day. " We made a serious error on the pit wall. We called Paul in for his second scheduled stop, but at the same time Adrian came on the radio reporting a puncture," Mallya said.
Despite starting at a season-best sixth on the grid, Force India failed to capitalise as the race progressed. This despite both di Resta and Sutil improving on their positions and looking good for points for a substantial part of the race.
