Sahara Force India got off to their best ever start to a Formula 1 season last Sunday when comeback man Adrian Sutil and Paul di Resta finished seventh and eighth, respectively, in an exciting Australian Grand Prix at Albert Park in Melbourne. Both Di Resta and Sutil have mixed feeling going into the season's second race in Kuala Lumpur this weekend.

Malaysia's scorching temperatures are a worry for all drivers and Di Resta says: "You never know what to expect! It could rain, or it could be dry. Temperatures are going to be high, degradation is going to be high, but I think our car is going to suit the warm weather.

"We've had a reasonably strong performance for the last couple of years in Malaysia, so I think we should go there feeling quite optimistic. We have a few days to conquer the jet lag and hopefully be fighting fit," added Di Resta.
