Sahara Force India team principal Vijay Mallya was a satisfied man after his team achieved the target of registering points in the inaugural Indian Grand Prix with Adrian Sutil managing to bring home the car inside the top 10 bracket here on Sunday.

Even though Mallya wanted both his drivers — Sutil and Paul di Resta — to finish among points at the Buddh International Circuit, only the former could secure two points for the Silverstone-based team by finishing on the ninth position after starting eighth on the grid.

“I'm very satisfied. In F1, what good thing can you expect than finishing in the top-10? You also need to look with whom you are competing with.” Mallya told reporters.

“Indian GP was fantastic. We targeted points and that's exactly what we delivered with Adrian's excellent drive to ninth,” he said. However, on the broader side, it was little disappointing for Force India as Di Resta finished outside the points bracket even though he improved two places after starting 15th on the grid.
