Silverstone: As F1 caravan moves to England, Sahara Force India are keen to erase their poor past record when their drivers line up on the grid for the 'home' British Grand Prix on Sunday.
     
Force India, whose headquarters are just across the race venue, have earned only four points in the last three seasons here.
    
In 2012 and 2011, the team returned empty handed and it was in 2010 that Adrian Sutil had finished eighth to earn four points.
     
"In the past we've never had great success at Silverstone, so we are keen to put that right this year. It's a home race for Paul and I’m sure the whole team can count on lots of support from the British fans. Performance-wise, I expect us to be competitive," said Team Principal Vijay Mallya.
     
"We have a couple of small upgrades so I'm optimistic that we can be fighting for our usual position inside the top ten," Mallya added.
     
For Paul di Resta also it is a home race as he hails from Scotland and he wants to come up with a special performance.
     
"When I was young I dreamed about coming to Silverstone as a Formula One driver so it's always a very special weekend. As a venue it's spectacular with some of the greatest corners of the year and the atmosphere is just incredible. The place is packed all weekend and the buzz from the fans gives you so much energy," he said.
