Force India preview the Italian GP

Force India head to Monza with a new wing configuration designed specifically with the high-speed Italian track in mind...

Paul di Resta: "It's one of those really special races and a venue where you can really appreciate the history of the sport. It's also another place where the fans really get behind Formula One and always create a brilliant atmosphere. It always takes a while to get used to the car because we run with a lot less downforce compared to any other circuit. Your braking distances increase and we're travelling about 25 km/h faster than we do all year. So adapting to that quickly and getting up to speed is always a challenge. It's mainly about getting the brakes right. You need to have your brake balance spot on and it's not easy when you're changing fuel load - especially in practice and on low fuel in qualifying. You also need to be aggressive and use the kerbs to get the lap time."

Nico Hulkenberg: "I really enjoy Monza. It is the last high-speed circuit of the year and the atmosphere is just brilliant. Obviously every team brings a new wing configuration to Monza because the track is so unique, so we have to wait and see how our aero package performs there. The target remains more points on Sunday."

Dr Vijay Mallya, Force India team principal: "The car was working well in Spa and looked competitive on the straights so I'm hopeful we can carry this over to Monza where we run with even less downforce."
