about Force India

Force India Formula One Team Limited, competing as Sahara Force India F1 Team is a Formula One racing team based in Silverstone, United Kingdom, with an Indian licence. The team was formed in October 2007 when a consortium led by Indian businessman Vijay Mallya and Dutch businessman Michiel Mol bought the Spyker F1 team for €90 million.

After going through 29 races without scoring points, Force India won their first Formula One world championship points and podium place when Giancarlo Fisichella finished second in the 2009 Belgian Grand Prix. Force India scored points again in the following race when Adrian Sutil finished fourth, and set the team's first fastest lap, at the Italian Grand Prix. The team's other podium finishes to date are four third-places, in the 2014 Bahrain Grand Prix, 2015 Russian Grand Prix, 2016 Monaco Grand Prix and the 2016 European Grand Prix, all achieved by Sergio Pérez.

In October 2011, Indian company Sahara India Pariwar, purchased 42.5% of Force India F1's shares at US$100 million.

The change is understood to be precautionary and based on data observed during the previous race in Mexico. It will trigger a five-place grid drop because Ocon finished the Mexican GP, in 11th, and his gearbox has not completed six races. Ocon was 10th-fastest at the end of Friday practice at Interlagos, where his team is trying to score enough points to overhaul McLaren for sixth in the ...

Sauber propped up the constructors' standings last year, scoring just five points to nearest rival McLaren's 30 as it struggled with a year-old Ferrari power unit. Having switched to a current-spec engine, the team was once again slowest in the 2018 season opener in Melbourne – but the C37 blossomed into a midfield regular and an occasional Q3 threat as the campaign wore on. Asked by ...

The Canadian's 2019 move from Williams to Force India is yet to be officially confirmed, but his father's takeover of the Silverstone-based outfit has helped seal his switch. While Force India is in no rush to make a formal announcement about Stroll's move until current driver Esteban Ocon's future has been resolved, the team says it is eager to get him in the car for the Yas Marina test that ...

The Frenchman, who finished the race in eighth place, is under investigation over exceeding the fuel mass flow limit during the opening lap in an "alleged breach of Article 5.1.4 of the FIA Formula One Technical Regulations".

Racing Point Force India was the stop-gap name given to the new team that entered F1 mid-season thanks to the convoluted way Force India’s administration was resolved.  The team and its owners, a consortium of investors led by Lawrence Stroll, always intended on changing that name.  Team principal Otmar Szafnauer says the request should be lodged in time for it to be approved by ...

The Mexican’s renewed deal comes as no surprise given that Perez and his management were closely involved in the legal moves that led to the original team going into administration, and the subsequent purchases of the assets by the Racing Point consortium led by Lawrence Stroll. Perez was one of the main creditors, and owed over $4m by the original team, which has now been paid. As was ...

Stroll and his associates paid £90m for the assets of the old team before creating a new company and lodging a new entry with the FIA, under the Racing Point name. As the original company is under administration, usually that £90m would be locked into a legal process that could take months or even years before the funds are divided up and used to pay the creditors, led by Mercedes and Sergio ...

A raft of changes made to Force India's car at the Singapore Grand Prix has helped its fight for points and, after Esteban Ocon ended up best of the rest in Friday practice in Japan, Grosjean said he was not expecting his rival to be so strong here. "Force India was a bit surprising," he said. "They have been fast recently after a very difficult beginning of the year, and they have raised their ... ...

Haas has stood firm against approval of the new Force India entry receiving extra Column 1 prize money payments – something that outfits normally have to wait two years for. With Haas itself having had to wait until this season for it to earn the right to those Column 1 payments, it does not understand why Force India should be given preferential treatment in receiving the money right ... ...

Ocon and teammate Sergio Perez were stuck behind the Haas of Kevin Magnussen when Perez asked to be let through to attack the Dane, with Force India giving Ocon a set number of laps to make a pass before he had to move over. The Frenchman couldn't make the overtake and allowed Perez ahead, but the latter could make no progress either - so eventually the cars swapped back, coming home ninth and ... ...

The current Silverstone factory dates back to the early years of Jordan, when staffing levels were much lower. The main challenge the team now faces is that around 100 aerodynamicists are based in offices at its old wind tunnel site some seven miles away from the main base, even though that tunnel is no longer used. There are also plans to bring more manufacturing in-house, which will ... ...

The Frenchman is currently without a race seat for next year due to the imminent arrival of Lance Stroll at the Silverstone outfit, and his last remaining option is Williams. Retaining his links with Force India would at least allow him to stay in touch with developments, although he could also perform a similar role with the works Mercedes team. "Hopefully he'll find something else," said ... ...

Uralkali is suing the administrators because it believes that the winning bid from the consortium led by Lawrence Stroll was ‘significantly inferior’ to what it had offered itself. It has suggested that there was a lack of transparency with how the team was awarded to Stroll, and it wants the High Court in London to rule on the matter. Having finally been issued with legal paperwork on ... ...

In the tight battle for fourth place - which also yields a seat on F1’s influential Strategy Group - Renault has 91 points compared with 76 for Haas, while McLaren remains in touch on 58. But Force India, which started again from zero points at the Belgian Grand Prix because of a technicality relating to the team’s change of ownership, is already on 32. The gap might even have been ... ...

The reinvigorated and more financially stable team has come out the other side of what seemed like a very precarious situation – and one that directly affected its performance on track. The financial woes that Force India faced going into the 2018 season had a major impact on the development cycle of this year’s car, with its already limited resources being funnelled into a new chassis to ... ...

The case has highlighted how some sporting elements related to Sahara Force India have been carried over to the new Racing Point Force India by the FIA, and others have not. In Singapore the team was found guilty of an unsafe release of Esteban Ocon’s car in FP3, and received a €5,000 fine.

Green underlined one of the main concerns about F1’s attempt to regulate future styling, namely that teams will always do whatever it takes to make their cars go faster. That could lead to unexpected developments along the lines of the infamous “ugly noses” of 2012. “They’re just concepts, drawings,” said Green when asked by Motorsport.com about the latest images. “What they ... ...

Perez was well inside the top 15 after the first runs in Q1 at Monza, and the Mexican – who regularly tries to save tyres in the first session if confident of getting through – opted to stay in the garage. However, the team underestimated how much the track would ramp up and how much slower cars would gain from getting tows. Perez was eventually bounced down to 16th, missing out on Q2 by ... ...

The revamped Force India entry and F1 bosses are trying to get unanimous support for the Silverstone-based outfit to earn extra Column 1 prize money immediately – something new outfits normally have to wait two years for.

Perez appeared to be well inside the cut-off after the first runs in Q1 and the team thus elected to keep him in the garage to save tyres. However, while he sat in the car, he gradually slipped down the order – to eventually be squeezed out of 15th place by a margin of just 0.001s to Romain Grosjean. Less than a tenth of a second covered 10th to 17th places in an unusually tightly packed ... ...

Under the Concorde Agreement, teams that are insolvent lose their right to keep their payments unless all other teams agree.
