Adrian Sutil, Paul di Resta suffer retirements at Malaysian Grand Pix

It was a forgettable Malaysian Grand Prix race for Sahara Force India as Adrian Sutil and Paul di Resta failed to complete the race due to wheel nut problems,

here today.

The poor qualifying spilled to the race day as Sutil was in the race for 27 laps while di Resta retired after 22 laps as both the drivers were troubled by wheel nut issues.

To save the cars from serious damage, the team chose to retire both the machines. Defending champion Sebastian Vettel won the race ahead of his Red Bull teammate Mark Webber.

Sutil chose to be optimist, saying it's early time in the season and they have plenty of time to recover from the disappointing result today.

"Were not sure exactly what happened yet so the team stopped the cars to make sure we understand the issue. It's a shame that this happened here because we had a very quick car today and I felt very comfortable as the track dried out. We have to stay positive, keep our heads up and remember that

there are plenty of races left where we can make up for the disappointment of today," the German said.

Di Resta said the pace of the car was good but it made sense to retire the car to avoid damage. "We saw an issue at Adrian's first pit stop when I was sat behind him, which cost me about 15 seconds, and then I had the same issue with the wheel nut at my second pit stop. As a precaution the team chose to retire the car," di Resta said.
