Adrian Sutil was understandably thrilled that the Force India team had managed to have their strongest start to a championship season by making it through to the final part of qualifying at Bahrain.
While the other nine runners opted for the use of the soft tyre in a bid to chase a quick lap, Sutil instead elected to use the more durable medium compound Bridgestone.
"I think it was a great achievement to go into Q3 at the first race,” Adrian said.
"Our goal is now to finish in the points. At the moment I’m in tenth and hopefully we can make one or two positions up as I’m the only car on the hard tyre, so it may be an advantage. I’m surprised that the others were on the soft tyres, so our decision could pay off tomorrow."
This is going to be one of the most interesting strategic decisions of the race…
