While the best Karun could have achieved was to complete the race, Adrian Sutil's 10th place on the starting grid had raised Force India hopes for a good finish.

The German driver, however, dropped out of point race after an opening lap scramble to eventually finish 12th and it was his Italian teammate Liuzzi who took the onus on himself to ensure that the Vijay Mallya-owned outfit gained something from the season opener.
In contrast, Hispania driver Karun's Formula One debut was a bllink-and-miss affair with the Indian forced into an early exit by a bump in the circuit.

"It was only my fifth lap of the circuit here and I found a bump I didn't know was there before and it launched me off," rued the Indian.The 2010 season opener got off to a chaotic start and Sutil's VJM03 was among the cars that spun in the start, pushing the Force India driver down to the second last position.Sutil tried to claw his way back and rose through the cluttered mid-field but that was not enough to finish among the points.Liuzzi was more in control of the race as he drive to his first points for the Silverstone-based squad.
