It is expected that Force India’s new car will have significant aerodynamics enhancements but the chassis will be based on (ex-Spyker) 2007 car. The new car will debut on February 25th at Barcelona’s Circuit where the F1 teams will have their last pre-season test session.

Giancarlo Fisichella, who has recently signed a deal with Vijay Mallya’s Indian team, believes that the team is making progress under the guidance of technical director Mike Gascoyne.

Fisichella said: “Even with lots of fuel and scrubbed tires we were closer to the other teams – it would have been interesting to see how close we got – but we are definitely making progress and going in the right direction. I’m pleased with how it’s going.”
