New Delhi: Sahara Force India drivers Nico Hulkenberg and Paul di Resta on Monday said they will try to make their home Grand Prix "special" with a big result and won't "give up" on the sixth place in the championship for which they are fighting hard with Sauber.

With four races to go, starting with Sunday's Indian Grand Prix, the Indian outfit is placed seventh currently, trailing the Swiss team Sauber by 27 points.

"Since this one is home Grand Prix, a big result would be very welcome. We will try to make it special," Hulkenberg said.

"Focus never changes, as a team we want both the cars with points," said Paul di Resta.

At this stage of the season so far, Force India have fared better on points compared to the last season but the mid-field has been very competitive with Sauber coming up very strong.

Sauber can even dislodge Mercedes from the fifth position. Hulkenberg, who is expected to move to Sauber in the next season, said Force India still have hopes of grabbing the sixth place.

"It's been a good year, we have been fairly consistent compared to the other teams. We have scored quite a few points on different occasions. Personally, I had good result, some strong performances, I missed on podium (in Belgium)," he said.

"On paper we have had better year than last year with more points but our main rivals like Suber have also been very strong. Our target still is to get that sixth place," the German said.

Paul knew that it was easier said than done but was not willing to throw in the towel as yet.

"Mathematically, it will be difficult, but obviously we won't give up with four races to go," the Scot said.
