Investment boost for Force India

NEWS STORY
21/11/2012

Force India boss Vijay Mallya has revealed that a £50m capital investment programme has been made available as the Silverstone outfit aims to take another step forward in 2013.

Almost guaranteed to finish seventh in the year's standing, the team is aiming to build on this next season in attempt to fight its way to the front of the midfield despite strong opposition from Williams, Sauber and Mercedes.

The task will hopefully be aided by today's new from Mallya who has been making the headlines himself of late what with the troubles facing his airline.

"We had a board meeting in India after the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix and the board has approved a £50 million capital investment programme for the team," he revealed. "We are going to invest heavily in new technology and give more tools to our design team to try and move further up the grid.

"Looking back at the season so far, we have every reason to feel proud," he added. "We've scored more points than in any previous season and every year we've demonstrated that we've gone up the ladder. And we've taken fairly significant steps, not just baby steps. Given the tools that we have, which are mostly of the Jordan era, we have done exceptionally well."

Having lost Nico Hulkenberg to Sauber, it is widely expected that Paul di Resta will be retained, with many claiming that Adrian Sutil will join the Scot next season.
