Formula One Testing, Day 3, Barcelona, Spain, Thursday, 21 February 2013


Returns to F1 racing with Force India after year's absence, scoring fine seventh in season-opener and performing strongly in early rounds. Giant-killing fifth in Monaco proves his worth, but team form drops in second half of season and he moves to Sauber for 2014.

At times struggles to match single-lap pace of rookie team mate Di Resta, but greater experience means he scores bulk of Force India's points. Ups his game in season's closing races to finish ninth overall in drivers' championship, but fails to keep seat for 2012.

Immediately emerges as Force India's unofficial number one, dominating team mate Liuzzi for pace, regularly making Q3 and the middle to lower end of the points, before team form trails off towards end of season, leaving him 11th overall in driver standings.

Force India's improved form helps him to ninth place at season opener in Melbourne. Achieves his best ever grid slot - second - in Italy and finishes the Monza race in a career-best fourth place, though it's his only point-scoring result of the year.
