The Force India VJM10

“I’m very proud of the journey we have taken over the last ten seasons to become an established Formula One team racing at the sharp end of the grid.” Vijay Mallya | Team Principal

The car has more silver on it this year – tell us the thinking behind the new livery?

“We’ve kept the basic colour scheme that we’ve been running for the last couple of years, but we’ve just freshened up the design slightly. Everybody has been telling me how much they love the colours on our cars so there was no reason to make a radical change. This livery gives our cars a contemporary and premium feel, which works well considering the partners we have on the car.” Vijay Mallya | Team Principal

New season, new rules and a new driver in the team

“All those variables have certainly kept us on our toes over the last few months, but overall I think we are in pretty good shape heading into the new season and the start of testing. 2017 represents a new era for the sport and it’s going to be fascinating to see how things shake out in the early races.” Otmar Szafnauer | Chief Operating Officer
