Force India Gets a New Outfit

Deepak JainContributor INovember 8, 2008

It is now officially confirmed that Force India has parted ways with Ferrari, who were supposed to provide them technical support up to 2010. 

Now, they are on the verge of signing a new agreement with McLaren Mercedes for supply of engine and technical support for their cars in the future. Hope that with this, the future of Force India also changes for good.

The Force India drivers, Giancarlo Fisichella and Adrian Sutil, will again try their luck on new Mercedes engines and try to make 2009 a better year.

Moreover, Vijay Mallya has replaced himself with Colin Kolles as team Principal besides being the Chairman also. Mallya, who himself has taken a keen interest in the managing and functioning of Force India, could not keep himself from out of action and has jumped straight in the helm of action to make Force India really "Force India."

He himself said "Force India is my most difficult project to date, and it has become clear that it requires more direct input from my side and greater performance accountability."

Being a shrewd businessman, he really wants to make this one count and is determined to do better next season. 

The F1 circuit is coming up in New Delhi, India and Force India should sort out their act before 2010 or 2011. That way, when F1 Grand Prix comes to India, they will be in a position to put up a good show in front of the Indian public.
