I am certain that Force India is up there with Mercedes, as their fastest times came from High fuel Soft Tyre Run. Just wait till Melbourne, they will produce better time than Williams.Racer X wrote:They did top that days sheets but not the fastest overall their 4th fastest let's pretend it stays this way at Melbourne
You'll still end up 7th and 8th.
In a sense Force India is still where it was last year solid but not great..
Thank you for this useful information and for providing proper sources.rahulsampath wrote:Nico Hulkenberg had mentioned in one interview that they never did low fuel, super soft run and also their DRS didnt work. Also Williams posted their time after 5 in the evening and the track was much faster.
Based on his assumption, FIF1 can bring their car 1:33's.
Apart from that, Force India will be introducing a lightweight chassis for Melbourne, which will bring them below 691 Kg weight limit. Therefore to meet the min weight limit, they will even have the liberty to use ballast which can be used be to tune car's handling and keep the center of gravity low.

I know they haveGodius wrote:As a long time Jordan F1 fan I have to say that I was delighted with this result, the last decade was kind of rubbish with a lot of downs and rarely a few ups. Force India have steadily developed into a solid sub-top team just like back in the good Jordan F1 years. But I have been reading that they have severe financial problems, I hope that they can keep up with their contenders in terms of aero development.
It's back on the car although they have stripped of the orange/white livery, i think that this could be to save weight. Any thoughts?ChrisM40 wrote:Now without Sahara Branding on the sidepod..
