Force India VJM09 Mercedes

A place to discuss the characteristics of the cars in Formula One, both current as well as historical. Laptimes, driver worshipping and team chatter does not belong here.

I would love to see pictures of the practice days... even one....
Yea... This team deserves a better following than it actually has.. I mean they really did start from the back and are now a strong mid-field team like how Toyota and Jaguar use to be.

It seems FI has shifted focus to race pace over quali position.

Hopefully, fingers crossed. But I'd be amazed and happy if they come up with radical concepts like the cobra nose. [-o< :mrgreen:

agree.. I don't think there will be anything radical as cobra nose(although a much shorter nose with cobra style would be awesome). but i hope they use 2016 spec merc gearbox rather than 2015 spec which they have been using till now. this might also allow them to have a underbody cut like Ferrari and Torro rosso.

Amus giving a slight details on upcoming upgrade on SFI.
When Force India the clocks already ticking for the GP Spain. Then finally comes the long-awaited Aero upgrade with new wings back and front, new boxes, a slimmer engine cover, a modified underbody and retouches to the brake ducts. The paper promises a gain in time of half a second. That would bring Force India to the level of Williams. Nico Hulkenberg is optimistic: "The stage will help us massively I trust that we will make a big step forward.."

FI had been using that specification since last year for deflection test. Moreover the changes are just in upper flap . So not actually new. i may be wrong, so lets c if more pics arrive.

That is some very fancy carbon work on that front wing. I hope they are able to achieve what they wanted with it. =D>
