F1 : Force India 2009 challenger

13 03 2009

Force India have launched their 2009 challenger, the VJM02.

It will be driven by experienced Italian Giancarlo Fisichella and young German Adrian Sutil. Italian Vitantonio Liuzzi will be the third and test driver for the team.

The new car looks very different to the VJM01, thanks to the swathes of new technical regulations, but also in terms of colour. The Force India has gone from a very similar colour scheme to McLaren to a white/orange/green scheme designed to portray the national colours of India.

The car features a wider nose similar in some ways to that of the Renault R29. We like the flaps in-built onto the centre of the front wing too. Force India have utilised some aerodynamic downforce from external winglets at the end of the sidepod in similar fashion to Ferrari and Red Bull Racing.

It is Force India’s second car, and it will be powered by Mercedes Benz engines in a new deal.
