Monza: Sa­hara Force In­dia driv­ers have suc­cess­fully negated a

weak qual­i­fy­ing by de­liv­er­ing points on race day this For­mula

1 sea­son but it must get a strong grid po­si­tion at the high­speed Monza Cir­cuit for the Ital­ian Grand Prix here this

week­end. Perez, who fin­ished sec­ond on

podium in 2012 for Sauber at Monza, said he would “cer­tainly try” to re­peat that per­form

ance. “I think it’s go­ing to be a good

track for us. It’s im­por­tant to qual­ify in the top ten to have a chance of scor­ing good points.

It’s dif­fi­cult to over­take at Monza and if you are out of po­si­tion it’s hard to re­cover,”

the Mex­i­can said. Nico Hulken­berg said they will use a new rear wing for the Monza race, con­sid­er­ing the low down­force na­ture of the

track. “It looks sim­ple, but hook­ing up a quick lap is still a chal­lenge and it’s easy to make mis­takes. I ex­pect us to be quite com­pet­i­tive there. It should be bet­ter for us than Spa. It’s all about power and top speed and we know the en­gine will be strong. We also have a new low down­force rear wing that we will use for Monza

only, he added.
