Adrian Sutil said he extracted everything he could from his Force India to take fourth place on the grid in Malaysia.

Saturday's qualifying was plagued by rain and a late afternoon thunderstorm, but while other drivers complained about the conditions, Sutil said it had been a fantastic session.

"It was a great qualifying again for us. As I expected it rained at 4pm, I said that yesterday I think! It was challenging and the conditions changed a lot over the sessions. Sometimes it was a lot of rain, sometimes half wet, half dry so it was very important to choose the right tyres. I think we did a great job in those conditions and every session we did the optimum."

He added that his team had played a big part in getting the car so far up the grid.

"I am so happy to be in this position now. It's a great achievement and my team really deserved it. They did a fantastic job: being there on the right time on the right tyre was very important. My time in the end was good for P4: a great job all round."
