Force India target new upgrade package after break



Force India target new upgrade package after break
Force India debuted a B-spec car at the British Grand Prix, having fundamentally been running an updated version of their 2014 challenger during the opening rounds of the championship.

Following the British GP double point finish, the Silverstone based squad told SkyF1, they are planning another upgrade package for the end of the break and targeting fourth in the Constructors’ Championship.

“The new parts will start to be manufactured on Monday [June 6] because we obviously we couldn’t do anything until we’d cleared it [the revised car] at the British GP,” Deputy team principal Bob Fernley told Sky Sports.

“Then it is just a case of when we can get it – hopefully we can get it for Spa, but if not Monza.”

“We have to aim for fourth. Red Bull obviously are strong here, but there will be a lot of circuits going forward where we can outperform them,” he said.

“We’ve got Hungary now to further develop this package and then hopefully we will add some more performance to it in Spa or Monza and that should see us through very competitive with Red Bull until the end of the season. I also think we have a better and more reliable power unit.”
