Montreal: Sahara Force India celebrated its 100th race in style, scoring seven points with Paul Di Resta and Adrian Sutil finishing in seventh and 10th places respectively at the Canadian Grand Prix here.

Starting 17th on the grid, Di Resta drove a magnificent race and climbed to seventh position which he managed to maintain to pocket six points at the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve on Sunday.

His team-mate Sutil, who started eight, was lucky to get away with a spin in Turn 2 early on while fighting Valtteri Bottas of Williams for sixth and lost his chance of finishing eighth when he was given a drive-through penalty for ignoring blue flags for the Lewis Hamilton/Fernando Alonso fight.
