Force India

A quiet start to the season but managed to pickup better results as the season progressed. Notably a 4th place in Belgium and two 5th places in Valencia and Brazil helped. In Brazil Nico found himself qualifying only 7th but with changeable conditions managed to match race leader Jenson Button and be the only two quick drivers not to stop for wets. By half way through Nico had taken the lead of the race looking like an easy podium until a safety car deployment removed the 40 second lead he'd gained.
