Force India Tests/OFAB

Some surprising news coming out from the team is that yesterday is that Max Chilton (who races in GP2) did a straight line aero test for the team at Kemble airfield in the UK (Williams and Lotus also did tests there this week). Chilton was drafted in as our three main drivers were all unavailable.

Force India's race support engineer; Oliver Knighton said "We were able to record the important aero data, which we will analyse over the next few days. I'd like to say a special thank you to Max, who enjoyed his first taste of an F1 car today. He prepared himself very well and adapted quickly to the procedures and systems on the car, all of which allowed us to make good progress with the programme."

In other news, the finals of the Force India 'one from a billion academy' started today with free practice in Goa. We wish all the drivers good luck especially Parth Ghorpade who we have been following for a while now.
