Tonio Liuzzi was happy 'to be back in business' after a strong qualifying performance ahead of the Canadian Grand Prix.
"It's good to be back in business after Turkey," said Liuzzi, who struggled for pace during the Istanbul race two weeks ago, after qualifying in season-best sixth position.
"We understood a lot of things from there and also Monaco and pushed really hard to make things better. We changed the chassis and brought some new updates that we tested on Friday and then this morning and, so far, everything is great.
"P6 is a good position to be in, but it won't be easy tomorrow as the tire wear will be high and I think it will make for a really crazy race.
"This circuit seems to suit us well, with our aero package and setup, and we've seen a big step forward. It's a great team effort and if Adrian and I can both finish in the points tomorrow it would make a brilliant reward for the hard work we've done over the past few weeks."
Force India completed its best qualifying performance of the year after Adrian Sutil also made it to Q3 in ninth position. The German driver was also happy with his result despite some problems with the tyres.
"It was a good result to be in Q3 again, the fifth time this season and the fourth in a row," Sutil said. "In general the car was good and behaved well, but we just couldn't get the best out of the tires on the last run.
"I had a little problem getting the temperature in the front tires and the car felt a bit more understeery, but we can be happy with the lap in the end and P9 is a good starting position for tomorrow.
"The race will be tough and for sure it will be hard to make the tires last over the distance, but we'll give it our best and look to convert the performance into points tomorrow. As a team it's looking pretty good right now, Q3 for both cars and hopefully another double points finish in the race."
