Force India earns double points in their home track


Silverstone: Sahara Force India on Sunday enjoyed its second successive double points finish with Nico Hulkenberg finishing seventh and Sergio Perez ninth at their home race, British Grand Prix, here.

At seventh, Hulkenberg was the last driver among 13 finishers who was not lapped in the race, won by home favourite and defending champion Lewis Hamilton. It was third double-points finish for Force India this season, the start to which was quite troublesome for the Vijay Mallya-co-owned team. 11701000_10153333242622936_6031868078255441517_o
