Stunning show by Sergio Perez gives Force India 10 points

Spielberg (Austria): Force India have something to smile at the Austrian Grand Prix as Sergio Perez made a stunning comeback to finish sixth from 15th while Nico Hulkenberg came ninth to earn 10 points for the team at the Red Bull Ring here Sunday.

Force India now have bagged points in all the eight races of the season so far. They could have had a better finish here had Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo not passed Hulkenberg at Turn 4 on the last lap of the 71-lap race.

The Silverstone-based team are fourth in the team standings but are now facing a serious threat from Williams, who bagged 27 points from the race, courtesy a third and fourth finish by Valtteri Bottas and Felipe Massa.

Force India, who have 87 points, are now just two points ahead of Williams who have overtaken McLaren in the standings to be fifth.
