Force India had high hopes for the 2012 Formula One World Championship.

With one of the most exciting driver line-ups on the grid in the form of Paul di Resta and Nico Hulkenberg, the team would have hoped to have broken away from the mid-pack teams this season.

In regards to points earned Force India are looking good in comparison to 2011.

Di Resta has won 21 points while Hulkenberg has earned 7 points, which gives the team around twice the number of points as they had collected at this stage of the season a year ago.

The problem is while Force India have shown steady progress, Williams have managed to win a race this season, while Sauber have consistently performed and stood on the podium.

That has left Force India a adrift in eighth place in the Formula 1 constructors world championship and Team principal Vijay Mallya has called for his team to find improvements.

?Formula One is hard to predict at the moment, It?s seriously competitive with seven different winners in seven races, all of which is great for the sport. But while it?s hard to predict, we still need to lift our game, especially if we want to target fifth or sixth in the constructors? championship. Mallya told formula1.com.

‘we?ve had one of our best starts to a season ever in terms of points scored, but the teams around us have also performed exceptionally well.?

?The teams that we have been comparable with in the past few years have been on the podium, and I?m sure our time will come, as long as we get things right, It?s something we need to do sooner rather than later because we are quickly approaching the midway point of the season. I hope we can recapture our form in Valencia, return to the points and demonstrate our potential.?


Force India are currently 41 points behind fifth placed Mercedes, 30 points behind sixth placed Sauber and 16 points behind Williams in seventh.
