Top three for Force India?


All Force India fans MUST watch this short ESPN report on the team - it's a great way to get excited for the 2012 F1 season as Force India's sporting director, Andy Stevenson, says:

"realistically we have to say the top three"

This is very promising going forward into the new season. We are planning a write up on Force India's 2012 prospects at some point in the near future, stay tuned for that!

Meanwhile we have our first picture of the VJM05 (2012 Force India challenger), as tweeted by the team on twitter (@clubforce)

(click to enlarge)

That's Paul Di Resta sat in the car having his seat fit for the new season. Speaking of Paul, he discussed the VJM05 at the Autosport show which was held in Birmingham from the 12th-15th January and he described the new car as a "bathtub". We're pretty sure this is relating to the fact that the car is currently one colour though and not a comment about speed! =p

Anyhow a few other stories for you guys; the i1 super series has been pushed back with calendar alterations. The season will now kick off on 11th February at the Losail International Circuit in Doha, Qatar. Interestingly the Malaysian race has been dropped in favour of a second race in the UAE. Read everything you need to know about the series, including the updated calendar here.

Lastly, how often do you find yourself longing to get closer to the motorsport action? Now, you can!

For a fee of Rs.15,000 you can get the chance to drive around the Buddh International Circuit practically all day (8:30am to 5:00 pm) on 19th February. There will also be three more opportunities like this during the year according to Arjun Chopra (the man behind the initiative). Read more on this great opportunity here - if you are going to do this we would love to hear from you, please get in touch =)

That's all for now, have a nice Monday!
