Sahara Force India drivers Sergio Perez and Esteban Ocon finished at seventh and eighth positions respectively in the rain-affected qualifying session at the British Grand Prix of the Formula One Championships here today. Perez clocked a best lap time of 1:28.902 to end the qualifying race at seventh while Ocon was one place behind with a best lap time of 1:29.074. Valtteri Bottas of Mercedes, who finished fourth, is likely to drop five grid places for an unscheduled gearbox change. If that happens, Perez will start at sixth -- at the third row -- while team-mate Ocon will begin at seventh -- at the fourth row -- at the final race tomorrow.
