Silverstone: A pit-stop goof-up pushed Paul di Resta to a poor 15th place finish while Adrian Sutil came 11th as Force India returned without points from the British Grand Prix despite good positions on the grid, here on Sunday.
After starting at a season-best sixth place on the grid, Resta was in points contention till the half-way mark in the 52-lap race, but a messy second pit stop in lap 25 compromised his home race.
It was a disastrous stop. Resta had come for a tyre change but the pit crew brought the Scott his teammate Adrian Sutil's tyres. By the time the error was realised and rectified, Resta dropped to 16th from a good seventh.
