"(The Indian Grand Prix) felt really good and I think eighth place was as much as we could really hope for from that race, especially when you remember that I was 12th on the grid. At the end of the race when I stopped in front of the grandstand I could see the fans going crazy and cheering for me. That was a special moment.
"Because I made such a good start I was up there in contention for points and able to run in clean air once I got ahead of (Sergio) Perez. The first half of the race was a bit quiet for me because I was running on my own, but the final few laps were tough because (Romain) Grosjean was pushing me hard. So overall a strong car performance, a great team effort and I think we should be happy with what we achieved.
"I think Abu Dhabi should suit us a bit more than India. It’s a twisty circuit with more low-speed corners and it’s a bit more like Singapore, where we looked quite competitive. So I’m optimistic going there."
Paul di Resta
"That’s certainly the plan (to bounce back from a frustrating last race) and the whole team has been working hard to try and understand the issues we had in India. We’ve seen some things in the data so hopefully we can get on top of them and back up to speed right from the start of practice on Friday.
"Yas Marina is a very technical circuit with a lot of tight, low-speed corners and you need to be very precise with the car. There’s very little high-speed stuff, apart from the esses after turn one, but they are taken pretty much flat anyway. There are definitely some similarities with Singapore in terms of the number of low-speed corners.
"Abu Dhabi is a crucial weekend for us. The car was quite strong there last year so there’s every reason to believe that will carry over into this year. Also, it’s the sort of track that has suited us this year so hopefully we can maximise things and get both cars in the points. If we want to get close to Sauber that’s what we need to do. We need to make sure we have a strong run through until the end of the year."
