Sutil: A very good day

Sutil: A very good day

Adrian Sutil has highlighted improving the balance of his Force India on the supersoft tyres as the one area he needs to focus on before qualifying.

Having spent a year on the sidelines, Sutil was quickly back up to speed as he finished ninth quickest in Friday's practice for the Australian Grand Prix.

The 30-year-old posted a 1:27.435 in Practice Two to finish 1.5s behind pace-setter Sebastian Vettel. However, more importantly, Sutil was also nine-tenths up on his team-mate Paul di Resta.

"It was a very good day and I feel satisfied," said the German.

"The baseline set-up was not too far away from what we needed and the car felt very similar to the way it performed in Barcelona at the final test.

"I had a good feeling all day and enjoyed working with my engineers, who I already know very well. The track is obviously evolving and improving, but we got a good feel for the tyres.

"The main focus tonight is to work on improving the balance on the supersofts."
