Force India target Big Four


Sergio Perez and Nico Hulkenberg say they are very confident all the time as Force India keep on to upgrade its B-spec package over the second half of the season.

Perez and Hulkenberg finished sixth and seventh respectively at Monza last race weekend. The Silverstone based squad now 13 points ahead of Lotus, battle for fifth in the constructors’ championship.

“I’m heading to Singapore feeling very positive, we’ve shown in the last two races just how competitive we can be and I’m confident we can have a similar level of performance in Singapore.

“The team is pushing hard to bring performance to the car and we’ve still got developments coming through which will help us a bit more this weekend. said Pérez.

Hulkenberg added – “I’ve always enjoyed racing in Singapore and I think it’s one of the best events of the year, we go there knowing we’ve made some good steps with the car over the last few races and aiming for more good points.”

Team principal Vijay Mallya has targeted breaking into the Big Four next season, with better upgrades and wider recruiting of top backroom staff.

“Mercedes, Ferrari, Williams and Red Bull are in front but if we do our homework right, I believe we can take on Williams here [Singapore GP],” Hulkenberg told The Straits Times.

“We have been going upward and forward in recent months and the potential is there to go even further.”

Perez said: “We may not have the budget of the big teams, but what you get from Force India is a true underdog. The entire team, from the drivers to the engineers, don’t know how to quit. The more people write us off, the faster we go.”
