Sao Paulo: Adrian Sutil could not have signed off the season in a better way as he achieved both the goals set for the Brazilian Grand Prix - beating a Mercedes car and finishing ninth in drivers' championship.
Sutil finished sixth, ahead of Mercedes Nico Rosberg, after passing him in lap number 50 of the 71-lap race.
Force India finished sixth, one position better than the last year, in the constructors championship ahead of Sauber. "I'm really happy about the result today. It completes a great weekend where everything went to plan. I had a good feeling in all the sessions and the team did a brilliant job to give me such a good car today. We also made the right calls with the strategy because we knew there was a chance to beat Mercedes, and that's exactly what we did.
