Both Force Indias scored points in singapore and the resultant move up to fifth, past McLaren, in the Construc tors points, says a lot. sergio Perez’s seventh was the result of a strong drive back through the field after his disintegrating front wing caused the safety Car. Checo was pretty happy: "The race really had everything for me and the final laps were very enjoyable. I was very happy with our performance today and, most importantly, we finished ahead of our direct competitors. “Those in front of me at the end had big tyre degradation, but this affected me as well. When I caught the train ahead I didn' t have much grip either and this made each one of the overtakes a bit more difficult. We managed our tyres perfectly and to go from P15 to P7 was the reward we deserved. “It was a great result for the team; they did a fantastic job with the strategy and it worked very well for both Nico and me. “ Today was one of those results where the race gives you a fantastic feeling: it's more than just scoring the points – it's about how you gained the result. everything gets thrown at you but you don't give up and come back strongly to get the points." Two spots further back at the end, Nico Hulkenberg ultimately regretted not making an extra stop for some grip: "It's good to be in the points and from a team perspective it's been a successful day. This is always a difficult race, especially from a strategic point of view, and maybe we could have achieved even more today. “After the safety Car I had to do a 30-lap stint on the soft tyres and, like most of the cars ahead, I was running out of grip towards the end of the race. With hindsight it would have been better to pit again for fresh tyres and we probably could have finished even higher up, but it's always a difficult decision for the team with the information we had at the time. The good news is that we got two cars home in the points." In the frame 32 GPWEEK.com // 32 GPWEEK.com // F1 >>> SINGAPORE PARTNERS:
