Vastavam Web: Sahara Force India made a promising start to the 2017 Formula One season with a double points finish through Sergio Perez and Esteban Ocon at the Australian Grand Prix, here today.Perez, who was on 11th spot on the grid, made two bold moves to finish the 57-lap race in seventh place.It was a memorable race for Econ as he scored his first point in Formula 1 on his Force India debut, passing two-time World Champion Fernando Alonso to secure 10th place.
“I am very pleased with the result and I don t believe there is anything we could have done better today. Seventh place was the most we could achieve and the team had to make all the right calls to get this result,” said Perez.”We had the correct strategy and we managed the tyres well to bring the points home. We still had to pull a few big moves on Kvyat and Sainz, even though it was not easy to overtake, but once I was in clean air I felt I was in a very strong position.”Driving these cars is so much fun: you can push a lot harder than in the past and I was doing my fastest laps towards the end of the race. We know we still need to improve this car and there is more performance to come,” added the Mexican.
