Posted on Author Keith Collantine

Force India failed to score for the fourth time in six races for reason not entirely within their control at Suzuka.

That allowed Williams to move within two points of them in the constructors’ championship.

Adrian Sutil

Force India’s qualifying troubles remained in Suzuka and Sutil could only manage 15th on the grid.

He was on course for a points finish and on the tail of Rubens Barrichello before an oil leak caused a high-speed spin at 130R. He retired in the pits.

Vitantonio Liuzzi

Liuzzi didn’t run the new floor in first practice, unlike Sutil, but even when they both had it in second practice he was still 1.5 seconds slower than his team mate. Lined up 17th on the grid, two places behind Sutil.

He made a good start but was taken out at the first corner by Felipe Massa. Liuzzi has completed just one racing lap in the last two Grands Prix.
