FI is continuing their good form with Sutil fastest amongst non KERS drivers.
Fisi is 8th, he would be wondering what he would have done if he had stayed with FI

I hope sutil does well on sunday, the team deserve another good victory.

Fisi, is probably too excited that he's driving for Ferrari to think about, the if's.

Friday practice sessions are nothing to compare the performance of the car. We have to wait till the Saturday Quali for the true picture.

Though i must agree Force India have a good car for the fast flowing tracks.

Fisichella faster than Kimi in his first Ferrari outing.. This is good.

Like someone else said, its pretty useless to go by Friday times. They're trying different setups, fuel loads, tyres etc. On the other hand, I did read that Renault are reintroducing KERS for Monza because they reckon its worth a quarter of a second per lap! So expect Mac and Ferrari who have worked with KERS all season to do well now.

With the KERS cars, the start of the race would be the one to watch

Sutil fastest in FP2. Definitely Force India have some genuine pace here!

No its not useless.

Sure, they are trying setups .......but at the end of the day, the goal is to get the car to go as quickly as possible.

Oh my god ! This time I think Sutil is hot. Expecting a really good result from him. I m just thinking what will Vijay Mallya do if he gets podium in this one too. Raise the bar lets us aim for 1st place.
Not to forget Adrian is a good driver, now that all the engineer s focus will be on his car. I m sure with the right weapon he can suceed.

Sutil must be hungry to take over from where Fisi left. and that certainly good for Force India

Does the Force India cars got KERS this time around.???

All the best Force India....

Nope. Unfortunate since KERS is worth a lot in Monza

Vijay Mallaya has said point blank, that Force India will not have KERS this season. I agree, they have a good setup and adding 30 kgs and playing with the Aero might backfire.

What !

Saturday Practice results showing,
Sutil is topping the charts and setting the race pace on FIRE

Nice to see Force India cars in Top 6 position.

Sad Fisi in the Ferrari has crashed to the side wall.

It's Sutil all the way!
With Liuzzi 7th, FI look good for qualifying and race. I won't be surprised if Sutil is on Pole for tomorow's race

Ferrari are struggling by the look of it. Kimi managed only 12th fastest, nearly a second off Sutil. Ferrari mechanics have a tough time fixing Fisi's car before the qualifying. It will be quite ironic if Fisi can't get past Q3 and then we see a Force India on Pole.

I am betting on Sutil to be in top 3 of qualifying.
