Force India 2015 F1 car launched

Force India F1 2015

Will this sleek silver steed launch Force India towards the front of the grid?

The midfield outfit has opted for a significant rebrand for the 2015 season, thanks in part to a new number of new Mexican sponsors joining the team.

The influx of Central American money is due to the team retaining Mexican driver Sergio Perez for s second straight season, partnered by German Nico Hulkenberg.

Mexico will also host a grand prix this year for the first time since 1992, to be held at a modified version of the classic Autodromo Hermanos Rodrguez circuit.

With local hero Perez to support, the venue’s 110,000 capacity is expected to be overflowing come race day, currently scheduled for November 1.

Force India continues with Mercedes power units this year, however it expects to be much more competitive thanks to a deal to use Toyota’s 60 per cent scale wind tunnel in Cologne, rather than the outdated 50 per cent wind tunnel it has been using.

The first test of the season takes place on February 1 at the Jerez circuit.
