No body is happier than Vijay Mallya after Giancarlo Fisichella's shock pole position in Belgian Grand Prix but the Force India chairman still does not want to talk about points lest it puts the driver under unnecessary pressure in tomorrow's race.

Talking to PTI from Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium, where Fisichella raised quite a few eyebrows with his stunning pole position, Mallya conceded it was an absolutely fairytale stuff but was not ready to talk about points.

"Let me make it clear, we are starting from the pole position but at the end of the day, it's not right to speculate. I think getting the pole position is a huge achievement in itself. I'm happy for the team and the members," he said.

Putting the feat in perspective, Mallya said, "Giancarlo did a brilliant job. To get the pole position in Spa, considered one of the most challenging circuits is a huge thing and I'm extremely happy for the team and the fans."

Mallya said even Adrian Sutil, who will start 11th tomorrow, could have qualified better but for the mid-field traffic.
