Force India VJM11

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 expected bigger upgrade package than just new sidepod deflectors maybe they will put on rest of it in FP session.
they had a "base" car on the test days. you can not stand with a completely new car in Melbourne. then testing did not make any sense either.
nevertheless the car has changed considerably at the back and have heavily revised their vertical airflow conditioners beside the sidepod intake - now an extra element, plus significant reshaping


The team of Force India has a large package of new parts for the VJM11 for the Grand Prix of Australia this weekend. Judging by the winter tests, the fourth place of the Indian team is on the tour and many teams are aiming at the best of the rest. To give the car a boost, Force India in Melbourne introduces an update for the car.
The new components, including a new layout of the barge boards and vertical wind deflectors around the side pods, should save the team half a second of time. Sergio Perez: "We are very optimistic, we know it will be a tough fight, because the opposition comes from great teams." McLaren takes the attack and Renault is also ambitious. "And then you still have Haas F1, who surprised during the tests", according to the Mexican.
Perez continues: "We are less bad than it seems, we have reasons to be optimistic." Teammate Esteban Ocon nodded in agreement. "Every time Force India introduces a new package, we've really got something done and it's always good for a better performance, we'll see what it brings this time, get the third part of the qualifying and score points during the race. That is the goal. "

No, Sidepod size stays the same, i think it's just floor of the car, t-wings and the side pod deflectors.
The sidepods have been revised already on the 11 release spec apparently.

And that seem like old Front Wing to me, maybe they will be running the same along with the new one for comparison.

Is the carbon fiber on the wing pylon there just to streamline it for aero purposes or does it have another purpose as well?
