Force India‘s distinctive orange and green colours will appear on the GP2 grid in 2014, following an agreement with the German team Hilmer.

Team supremo Vijay Mallya said the deal, with Facu Regalia and Daniel Abt in the cockpits, is part of Force India’s “great emphasis” on young driver development.

“It’s the logical next step as we look to bring through the next generation of drivers and provide them with the opportunity to showcase their talent,” he said.

The news comes at an awkward time for Mallya, amid reports his entire business empire is at risk of collapse, a year after his airline Kingfisher was grounded.

“The legacy of the empire, which he inherited from his dad, is at risk,” an insider close to one of Mallya’s lenders told the French news agency AFP.
