Force India's Liuzzi sizzles, to start Montreal GP ahead of Massa

Last updated on: June 13, 2010 16:05 IST

Vitantonio Liuzzi shrugged off his recent setbacks and will start Sunday's Canadian Grand Prix sixth on the grid, while team-mate Adrian Sutil will start ninth after both the Force India cars made it to the third qualifying session (Q3) in Montreal on Sunday.

Vitantonio LiuzziLone Indian driver Karun Chandhok will begin last on the grid, having suffered a gearbox problem that cost him the morning practice session.

McLaren's Lewis Hamilton finally put an end to Red Bull domination and snatched the pole position beating Mark Webber.

Meanwhile, it was a memorable day for Liuzzi, who reverted back to old chassis after complaining of grip problems in his recent races.

The Italian, whose job was rumoured to be on the line, broke into Q3 along with team-mate Sutil and his best of 1:17.086 was enough to finish ahead of Felipe Massa's Ferrari at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.

Sutil's best of 1:16.495 had him in the ninth place, sandwiched between Renault's Robert Kubica and Mercedes' Nico Rosberg.
