Buemi: Amazing to be back in top ten

Sebastien Buemi is relishing his return to the top ten in qualifying after claiming ninth place on the Indian GP grid.

Buemi, who was last inside the top ten in April's Chinese GP, made it through with a 1:26.161 in Q2. However, the Toro Rosso driver, like his team-mate Jaime Alguersuari, opted not to post a time in Q3 and will line-up ninth on the grid.

"I am very happy for the team as they did a fantastic job and I congratulate them and thank them for it. Having both cars in Q3 is amazing," said the Swiss driver.

"Now, I hope we can have a good race tomorrow, because there are no points for what we did today. The first race at this circuit is bound to be an interesting experience.

"It was teamwork that delivered today's result, with everyone giving their maximum since we arrived here in India."

Meanwhile, Alguersuari ensured a great afternoon for Toro Rosso as he also made it through and will start P10. And the Spaniard reckons a top-eight result could be on the cards.

"I am very happy, especially for the team as we are both in good positions and Sebastien was really fast, right from yesterday, when I had some problems," he said. "Today he drove a brilliant lap.

"Tomorrow, we have a good chance of doing well starting from these positions and it could be useful in terms of the championship as our main rivals, the Saubers, are starting behind us.

"Strategy will be important and if we do everything right then maybe we can bring home a big points score.

"The increase in performance at this point of the season is down to the great job the whole company has done in developing the car. I am hoping for a top eight finish tomorrow."
