Force India goes into 2015 with high expectations after a superb 2014.

Force India entering into 2015 with high targets following an outstanding 2014 season.

The Silverstone based squad, who finished sixth in last season’s constructors’ championship – have also revealed the car will have new cooling intakes, an updated rear hydro-mechanical suspension system, as well as modified sidepods.

Vijay Mallya, the team principal, said at the launch on Wednesday: ‘The 2015 car is a refinement of what we learned in 2014.

‘Another major step forward is the technology change, in that we are now using a 60 per cent windtunnel in Cologne, Germany which is a far bigger step than we have ever taken before.

‘Traditionally we have been in Brackley, England, where we used to develop our car with a 50 per cent model and an outdated windtunnel.

‘With this new and important tool available to use, we hope the 2015 challenger will really prove its worth in competing with the big boys of F1 when we start the European season.

‘We are lucky to have two exceptional drivers who will hopefully steer the Sahara Force India challenger to the front of the grid, and hopefully a few podiums during the current year.’
