Vitantonio Liuzzi recorded his best result of the season by finishing sixth in the inaugural rain-hit South Korean Grand Prix as Force India garnered eight points here on Sunday.

It was a tremendous finish for Liuzzi after starting as low as 17th on the grid. Before this, a seventh place finish at the Australian GP was the best result for the Italian.

However, Adrian Sutil returned empty handed after failing to finish for the second consecutive time, following an accident.

The DNF result pushed Sutil to 11th in the drivers' championship as Williams' Rubens Barrichello replaced him by finishing seventh. Both are tied at 47 points. Liuzzi has moved up to the 13th spot with 21 points. — PTI
