Sahara Force India gets set for the Chinese GP
Dr Vijay Mallya: "The next two weekends, with races in China and Bahrain, will put us in a position to see where we really stand in comparison with our rivals."
Vijayís Vision - Dr Vijay Mallya hopes the team can carry its strong form into the Chinese Grand Prix.

The first
two races of 2013 have been an encouraging start to the season. The VJM06 is a solid contender with competitive race pace; we have an excellent pair of drivers and the right technical package in place. Most importantly, the whole team is working together well.

Even though the last race in Malaysia was very disappointing, I know we have the potential to bounce back quickly and get a good result in Shanghai. Throughout the Sepang weekend, we had a quick car and the drivers felt good about their chances.

We were confident of bringing both cars home in the points until the wheel nut issue let us down. Weíve had three weeks to understand what went wrong and have worked hard fix the root cause of the problem.

China has always produced spectacular races and itís not uncommon to experience some wet weather, but we know that both our drivers and the VJM06 are comfortable in all conditions.

It shows how far we have come as a team. In the past we used to hope for rain as our only chance to upset the front-runners, but now we are more competitive in all conditions.

The next two weekends, with races in China and Bahrain, will put us in a position to see where we really stand in comparison with our rivals.

Everyone in the team is looking forward to this challenge and I am confident we will put the disappointment of Malaysia behind us and bring home some big points.

Paul on China


Paul, you head to China after very contrasting results in the first two rounds. How do you feel about this start of the season? "I am really looking forward to the next two races in China and Bahrain.

We were unlucky not to get any points in Malaysia, but we can take some positives from the performance we showed on the track.

We looked to be one of the fastest cars during the early part of the race. Itís a good sign for the rest of the season.

What are your expectations for this weekend's race? "The climate in China is very different compared to the first two races, but weíve performed well in the cool conditions of Melbourne and in the heat of Malaysia.

The team has had a sensible approach to the start of the season; we worked hard to get a good understanding of our package and weíre already reaping the rewards.

The objective for China is to make up for the missed opportunity of Malaysia and be firmly back in the points."

The team is currently fifth in the Championship. Do you think you can sustain this level of performance as the season progresses? It is important not to get carried away and to keep doing our job at each race.

We appear to be in a good position at the moment, but no one can say where we will be compared to our rivals after the next two races.

We know McLaren are a very strong team and they will develop well, so all we can do is continue pushing hard to try and stay ahead of them. We have been doing a good job so far - better than many people expected Ė but thereís a long way to go."

Adrian on China


Adrian, the car was very competitive for most of the Malaysian weekend. How did the event unfold for you? The car was definitely quick, but I felt more comfortable in the dry and I struggled more during the wet part of qualifying.

The start of the race was good: I was running in eighth position before my first stop, but thatís when things started to go wrong in the pits.

Itís a shame we had the problem because the car felt very strong, but sometimes these things happen. Now we need to focus on the performance to try and repeat it in China."

Are you confident that the car will be good in Shanghai? "The layout is not too different to Sepang, so it should suit us again and I hope we can be strong there. Also, we know there are lots of areas where we can improve because we have learned a lot from the first couple of races.

The other teams will not stand still so we need to keep pushing hard and keep up this momentum. We will have a new tyre combination in China Ė the soft and the medium Ė and we appear to be quite good at managing our tyres so we need to use that to our advantage."

What about your thoughts on the track? "Itís an interesting circuit, although itís not one of my favourites. Itís modern, of course, and there are some unusual corners, such as turn one Ė the long right hander.

You need to be perfect through these slow speed corners or you lose too much time. Itís wide and you can run some different lines through a lot of the corners, which is probably why itís a track where you can overtake quite easily."
