Formaplex were proudly invited to the Sahara Force India F1 car launch where the unveiled their new car, the VJM10 as they aim to build on their most successful season of Formula 1 from last year.
Sergio Perez and new team-mate Esteban Ocon pulled the wraps off the Mercedes-powered car at Silverstone, the circuit located opposite Force India’s factory. The VJM10 features a reconfigured livery with silver rather than black now the car’s predominant colour.
India are aiming to continue their progress in the first year of the sport’s new aero design rules with boss Mallya targeting a top-three finish.
Perez, who claimed podium finishes in Monaco and Azerbaijan in 2016, commented: “In none of the teams that I’ve been with in Formula 1 I’ve seen this level of confidence, organisation, everyone doing their jobs. We have plenty of reasons to be hoping for a great year. I think Force India will give a big surprise this year, I have a feeling we have done a tremendous job over the winter.”
A great job by the SFI team and the Formaplex team who played a key role in helping to get this car built. Well done to all. !
