Motorsport-total was mentioning a 15 million dollar deal per year.
Wow, that's nothing for such a prime position on the car. Last I heard a deal for the side pods was worth > 100m.

100m, that must be FI's total budget (?)

But isn't this why the driver line up that they have are so great. Perez will bring in the headline performance once in a blue moon and Hulkenburg will vacuum up as many points as possible. Hulk will win the battle but its win win for the team.
Yeah we still have to see the season run through. If Checos racing is a not consistent then Hulk will win. Either way good for the team. But if Perez is consistent then He will outclass Hulk if he's consistent in fighting and obtaining podiums. The kids been in more podiums then he or Di Resta drivers considered to be of the same I guess you can call it Crop.. it's nice to see consistency I agree but does Checo have what it takes to keep fighting up top. I rather see more podiums then 6th place finishes also... how come force india consistently built strong cars and Paul nor Hulk or Sutil ever take a podium.. last season I really taught Paul or Sutil should have taken at least one...

^^ This... People remember podiums not 5th places.

Both are great drivers, I hope Force India can keep up the momentum and the VJM07's performance. Imagine what this team could achieve if they had a big budget.

Is there any update on the following article from August 2013 on the plans to expand the factory

Force India set to upgrade facilities once F1 spending rules clear
Mallya added that the team also has plans to expand its factory, located across the road from the main entrance of Silverstone.

"We are looking at some land adjacent to the factory to cater for future expansion," he said. "You can't get a better location."

Looks good, the vjm07 is also sporting a slightly different livery, some branding of the sponsors are readjusted on the livery:

Have Force India sorted out their problems with FRIC yet? They were running without it at Monaco.

Even though the Roshfrans colors don't match the overall livery, definitely a nice reduction of duplication on the rear wing.

Any word on a new nose assembly? [-o<
