Sutil's car was involved in an accident with that of Venezuelan Pastor Maldonado of the Williams on lap one and that brought out the safety car until the fifth lap. Both the drivers came out unhurt but Sutil's car was wrecked after hitting the barriers.
Di Resta started on 11th at the grid and was involved in a midfield fight for the 10th and last point spot but could only end the race at 15th at the Circuit of The Americas.
Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel of Germany, who has already been crowned the world champion, won the race.
With just one race to go in Sao Paulo in Brazil next weekend, di Resta stands at 10th position with 48 points in the drivers' standings while Sutil occupies 13th spot with 29 points.       

In the constructors' table, Sahara Force India stands at sixth with 77 points. A disappointed Sutil blamed Maldonado for the collision.
"I made a good start, gained a few positions and was racing ahead of Maldonado on back straight. For some reason he hit my left rear wheel and I immediately lost control of the car and crashed into the barriers. I don't really understand why he was so close to me because the track is so wide there. I stayed on my line and there was a lot of space to the right and the left," he said.
"It feels like I ran out of luck this weekend. Up until Saturday morning I was looking competitive and was happy with the car, but all of that promise disappeared with the problems we had in qualifying. So it was an early finish and a very disappointing day," said the German.
