Disappointing from Budapest without any points: Mallya

Budapest, July 28 (IANS) Sahara Force India owner Vijay Mallya was disappointed as both his drivers Paul Di Resta and Adrian Sutil retired from the Hungarian Grand Prix here Sunday.

Budapest, July 28 — Sahara Force India owner Vijay Mallya was disappointed as both his drivers Paul Di Resta and Adrian Sutil retired from the Hungarian Grand Prix here Sunday.

Mallya admitted it was a tough weekend as Force India for the third time, after Malaysia and Germany, failed to score a point.

"It's not been the easiest of weekends for us and it's disappointing to come away from Budapest without any points. Adrian celebrated his 100th Grand Prix this weekend, but he remained out of luck in Hungary and had to retire early with a hydraulic problem. His strategy was looking good so he missed a chance of points today," said Mallya.

"Paul's race was quite straightforward, but we did not have the speed to make his three-stop strategy work - despite his superb start. With a few laps to go we noticed a similar hydraulic issue with his car and he also had to retire. With the next race coming up in four weeks' time, we will analyse our performance and work hard to recapture our form in Spa," he added.

Sutil said it was not the ideal way to celebrate his 100th race.

"It's disappointing not to finish, especially as the race was coming back to me after a poor start on the medium tyres. Just before my pit stop I had a problem with the gear shifts and I could not shift up any more. I came into the pits and it became clear we had a hydraulic problem so the team immediately told me to park the car," he said.

Di Resta was upset with the car's balance and tyre.

"I made a good start and was very aggressive on the opening lap. I think I was up to about P12, but from there on it was difficult because I was struggling with the balance and tyre performance. Without the speed we did not have the flexibility to make the strategy work and points were looking out of reach. Towards the end of the race the team called me to the pits because it seems we had picked up a hydraulic issue, similar to the problem with the other car. Over the summer break we will regroup, analyse things properly and take a fresh approach into the second part of the year," he said.
