Halfway through this season, Vijay Mallya is a happy team boss as Force India have "probably exceeded" all expectations.
Barring a disaster in Hungary, or a massive revival from McLaren, Force India are a safe F1 bet to head into the summer break fifth in the Championship.
The team has scored 59 points in the opening nine races, ten more than their Woking rivals.
It has been an impressive run from Mallya's team, which has scored points in all but two grands prix.
"I think the first nine races have probably exceeded the expectations we set ourselves over the winter," said the Indian businessman.
"The first mission was to start the year well and that's what we've done. In fact, it's been our best start to a season ever: we've shown good pace and had some excellent races.
"At the same time we recognise that we haven't made the most of all the opportunities and we've had our fair share of bad luck.
"But I prefer to focus on the positives and there's no doubt that the VJM06 is the best car we have ever produced and I'm proud of the hard work from everyone in the team."
The team, however, still has the Hungarian GP to tackle before the summer break with Mallya admitting more points are needed at a track where Force India have struggled in the past.
"The priority remains the same as the Silverstone test: to get better understanding of the new Pirelli tyres. That's been a key factor in our strong performances so far this year so we need to make sure we continue to deliver good tyre management.
"As a venue, the Hungaroring has not traditionally been our strongest track. Paul scored points a couple of years ago and it's important to add some more to our tally this weekend."
However, neither Sutil nor his team-mate are frontrunners to win the Hungarian GP coming in at odds of 100/1.
