I just had a thought! One of hulkenberg's black and orange helmets will blend nicely with that!

Great brand to have on the car!

Do people find themselves preferring the new black livery, or was the orange/green/white nicer?

I like both actually. Both good colour schemes. The black looks more badass. Badass is no good though unless it goes fast. It seems this car does go fast. :D
Love the Smirnoff!

After an impressive online car launch to show off their 2015 runner from Mexico City last week, Force India have today announced that they will not run at the first pre-season test in Jerez.

At the unveiling of the VJM08, the team confirmed that they would be taking a 2014 interim model to the first winter test session of the season in Spain, but they have today confirmed that they will now not be running at all.


The Silverstone based squad advised over Twitter that their reasoning behind this decision was that the learning opportunities running the older model would have been limited, so they have instead decided to focus on making it to the second test in Barcelona on February 19th. Jerez does have a unique surface, unlike that of the tracks used across the Formula One season, which makes it difficult to garner any real data on tyre performance, and this coupled with the fact that there is little difference between this year’s Pirelli rubber and that of 2014, it does seem the obvious choice to take for Force India...

The latest team in serious peril is Force India, according to an insider. The Silverstone based team announced on Wednesday that it is sitting out the first test of the 2015 pre-season at Jerez. The reasons for the decision have not been well explained, but technical boss Andrew Green has said it was a "conscious decision" to trade the test for more "development time".

But insider Ralf Bach, who writes for Sport Bild and TZ Munchen, writes on his blog f1-insider.com that the very future of the team is "far from certain". The off-track troubles of Vijay Mallya are well known, and Force India's co-owner Subrata Roy is even in jail. Bach reports that at the F1 strategy group meeting in London on Tuesday, it emerged that Force India is "facing financial collapse" and is currently insolvent.

The situation means the 2015 car is delayed "because important parts suppliers have not been paid". Bach added: "If no money flows in the next four weeks, it is said even the opening two races in Australia and Malaysia are endangered. The team is for sale," he claimed, "and Renault is interested as it wants to cut the cord to Red Bull and once again have a bigger presence in formula one."

Meanwhile, Bach also claimed that Pastor Maldonado's place at Lotus is in doubt, as his and the Enstone team's major Venezuelan backer, the state-owned PDVSA, is in crisis over the dramatic fall in oil prices. He wrote: "Bernie Ecclestone is apparently looking for a buyer for Lotus, because he wants to get rid of the uncomfortable Gerard Lopez. He has been trying for some time but so far has found no one."

Someone needs to tell Renault that Merc would probably not continue to supply an engine if they bought FI

Could be a smart move for Sauber to start trying and get the engine deal if FI collapse
