Force India eyeing consistency

Force India eyeing consistency

Force India team principal Vijay Mallya has urged his team to "play the long game in the Championship" instead of chasing short-term glory.

The Silverstone squad have impressed so far this season with Adrian Sutil and Paul di Resta picking up 51 points between them to push the team to fifth in the standings - one place ahead of their illustrious rivals McLaren.

Although Force India have made no secret of the fact that they are chasing a podium, Mallya feels it is important that both cars finish in the points on a regular basis so that they hold onto P5.

"Two exciting races in Monaco and Canada have set us up perfectly for this weekend's event," he said. "We celebrated our 100th race in Canada and continued picking up points with both cars. That's what we need to do if we are to hold on to fifth place in the Championship. While I still believe that we are edging ever closer to the podium, we must also focus on consistency and play the long game in the Championship, which means scoring points at every race.

"In the past we've never had great success at Silverstone, so we are keen to put that right this year. It's a home race for Paul and I'm sure the whole team can count on lots of support from the British fans.

"Performance-wise, I expect us to be competitive. We have a couple of small upgrades so I'm optimistic that we can be fighting for our usual position inside the top ten."
