One of the teams hoping their drivers will come out on top are based closest to the circuit, Sahara Force India, and they're looking for a strong showing on Sunday.
Chief Operating Officer at Sahara Force India, Otmar Szafnauer said. "Last year we finished 6th, so our objective is to be 5th or higher this year and I think we're well on our way to achieving that, although it's early and there's still a lot of races left."
