New Delhi:

He began the Belgian Grand Prix from the 15th position but Force India's Adrian Sutil managed to surge ahead through 44 laps and finish the race on the seventh position.

The German driver feels right decisions at the right time helped him comeback into the race. "We had a good strategy and made the right calls at the right time. When the safety car came out I pitted straight away, which helped me because I made up a couple of places," he said. Sutil had spun out of control during the third qualifying session and had said he was disappointed with his position on the grid, earlier.

On Sunday though, he re-affirmed his earlier belief that the team has been pacing well at the Spa circuit. "Overall I think that this result is a fair reflection of the pace we have had this weekend and it's nice to have recovered from the problems we had yesterday."

Paul di Resta, the other Force India driver, too fought hard and despite a minor damage to his car, finished the race on the eleventh position.
