.com weeK Accessible via the GPWeeK APP CLICK on the appropriate provider (right) Force India turned up at the silverstone Circuit for their home race this weekend with a B spec version of the VJM08 that started 2015. One of the most noticeable changes was the ‘nostrils’ incorporated into the nose to help improve aerodynamics. Aside from the aggressive look, the change has alerted the rest of the grid who are eagerly watching for improvements from the team on track. The ‘nostrils’ are just one part of the new upgrades with the rest of the car’s front end also heavily revised while the rear of the car is benefiting with much neater and tighter packaging. As team boss Vijay Mallya explained on Friday, the car that started the year was little more than a modified version of last year’s car, so while this updated car may be classed as a B spec, it is in fact the VJM08 and, so far, he is very impressed with what he has seen. “All of us have been eagerly awaiting the British Grand Prix and the launch of our new B-spec car,” he said. “I was very impressed when I first saw it myself. There is a lot of aerodynamic innovation in it and it looks lean and mean.” Currently fifth in the team’s championship and 24 points behind Red Bull, Mallya is hoping that this, and further upgrades in the future, will see the team challenge Red Bull for fourth place. “I think we still have to optimise the package that we have,” he confirmed. “There will be the inevitable upgrades that will come in future races, so we are hopeful to have a strong second half of the season, gradually improving race by race. "Red Bull are about 23 or 24 points ahead, Lotus are breathing down our necks, we’re used to that, but I wouldn’t be overly optimistic if I said we are targeting fourth in the championship this year.” MANAGING EDITOR Chris Lambden email@example.com EDITOR Mat Coch CONTRIBUTING WRITERS Formula 1: Mike Doodson Paolo Filisetti (F1 Tech Editor) Sean Kelly Robyn Schmidt Social Media: Ernie Black PhOTOGRAPhy Sutton Motorsport Images www.sutton-images.com Keith Sutton firstname.lastname@example.org: Mark Sutton, Daniel Kalisz, Mirko Stange, Dirk Klynsmith PUBlIShED By Grand Prix Week Ltd 61 Watling Street, Towcester Northants NN12 6AG United Kingdom PUBlIShER Chris Lambden email@example.com ADVERTISING Richard Partridge firstname.lastname@example.org Ph: + 44 1273 232 566 Mob: + 44 7771 567 644 Mark Sutton email@example.com se Asia, Australasia GPWEEK (Australia) firstname.lastname@example.org 12 GPWEEK.com // 12 GPWEEK.com // PARTNERS: F1 >>> news force indiA bullish over new cAr
