Sahara Force India Team boss Vijay Mallya said, following the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix and the board has approved a £50 million capital investment programme for next season development.
Dr Vijay Mallya sums up 2012 and looks ahead to the season finale.
Dr Mallya, with one race to go, sum up your feelings after a great year of racing…Looking back at the season so far, we have every reason to feel proud. We’ve scored more points than in any previous season and every year we’ve demonstrated that we’ve gone up the ladder.
And we’ve taken fairly significant steps, not just baby steps. Given the tools that we have, which are mostly of the Jordan era, we have done exceptionally well.
What can you tell us about the team’s ambitions going forward?We had a board meeting in India after the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix and the board has approved a £50 million capital investment programme for the team. We are going to invest heavily in new technology and give more tools to our design team to try and move further up the grid.
What are your thoughts ahead of this weekend?We hope that Nico will be able to pull off what he did for Williams in 2010 [pole position]. That’s what is needed if we want to catch Sauber! Otherwise I hope we can end the season with a strong result. Two cars in the points would be nice. Up at the front I look forward to seeing how the fight in the drivers’ championship concludes because it’s never over until it’s over. Also, many congratulations to Red Bull for securing the constructors’ championship in Austin.
The team says goodbye to Nico this weekend. How much has he contributed to the team this season?Nico has been one of the stars this season. He’s delivered exactly what we expected of him and brought a lot to this team. He has a big future in Formula One and we wish him well.
