Force India VJM03 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.

What is going on...

we start strong... the season progresses... and now we are struggling to get both cars on to the points...

with the INDIAN GP next year... we need to be consistent with our results...

Redbull started to win after 3 years in formula 1....

with the initial development rate... we had to keep it going if we had to keep up with the likes of renault and williams...

with 4 more races to go... i don think.... we will be able to keep the 6th position in the championship

I think its a little unfair to compare them to redbull, redbull hired Newey, they also have a MUCH bigger budget...

what else do you expect when the development prog comes to a standby mode, and with a budget small like this and limited(rather null) intellectual property, this is simply obvious

If the upgrade is a fog machine, then yes.

But it could be that Massa has also destroyed a second tub in the accedent, Liuzzi could have had his VJM/03-01 destroyed as well.

If both cars aint totaled, its a freaking miracle.
Apparently, Liuzzi was a bit luckier.

Looks les damaged than Massas F10, but looks could be deciving. I sence there could be a new tub here. The only VJM/03 avalable to Liuzzi is VJM/03-02 as 03 has been used by Sutil from the first race in Bahrain and Liuzzi trashed 04 in Monaco altho made it work for Turkey where it was seen last.

I have a feeling both Massa and Liuzzi will take new tubs!!!

VJM/03-02 for Liuzzi (A tub that was last seen in Pre Season Testing)
F10-282 for Massa (The tub that Alonso last raced at Silverstone in)
