SILVERSTONE: Sahara Force India has introduced their car 'VJM05' for the 2012 Formula One season. Paul Di Resta and Nico Hulkenberg were joined by reserve driver Jules Bianchi at the launch ceremony.
Andrew Green, Technical Director, elaborated, “The car looks more refined; a lot racier and a lot more purposeful. You can start to see the aerodynamic concepts coming through now. It looks quite a bit different to the previous years, and so far the performance in the tunnel has been encouraging.”
The VJM05 is the second car to be developed under the guidance of technical director, Andrew Green, as the team aims at fifth-place finish during the 2012 season
Team Principal Vijay Mallya, said, “To do so, we will need to begin the new campaign by delivering the kind of form we showed in the second half of 2011. I believe this is a realistic goal and that we have the talent and determination to realise these ambitions.”
The Force India cars will be powered by the Mercedes engines with gearbox supplied by McLaren.
