“I think we can be satisfied with the job we’ve done. My lap in Q2 was very good, although I made a small mistake in the second-to-last corner, so I was maybe a couple of tenths away from the perfect lap,” said Di Resta.

The Scot added that he felt the car was getting better to drive. “It definitely feels like we’ve made some progress recently and my confidence is growing with the way the car is working at the moment.

“Going into our home race we are only a couple of places away from points, so we’re in the mix and if we can deliver the right strategy we should be able to come away with something.”

Force India are sixth in the standings with 62 points, have had a poor run in the second half of the season scoring just three points in the last six rounds. Seventh placed Sauber have 45 points.
