Adrian Sutil qualified third in a qualifying session that was marked by persistent rain today at Brazilian Interlagos circuit providing Force India with a another big chance of a podium finish in the dying stages of the 2009 F1 season. Who knows? Sutil could climb the top step of the podium and the Indian national anthem playing in the background.

The session, which lasted for over 2.30 hrs, was stopped briefly during Q2 as the other Force India driver Vitantonio Liuzzi aquaplaned and hit the pitwall during his qualifying lap, ending his chances of seeing the top 10. He will commence his racing tomorrow from 15th place.

On the front row tomorrow will be Rubens Barrichello of Brawn GP and Mark Weber in the Red Bull team.
