Force India History

Force India History

Vijay Mallya’s team are much improved since their debut in 2008, and they have become one of the most popular teams on the grid.

So far their progress has been gradual, but they will be one of the teams to watch when the new rules and regulations come in for 2014 and beyond.

The team has a complicated history, as it went through several different guises from Jordan to Spyker to Midland before finally settling on Force India in 2008.

Scepticism, and recent history, led many to believe that they wouldn't last long, but then people really took notice in 2009 Belgium.

Despite being the slowest car on the grid throughout the season, the conditions in Spa suited the team, and Giancarlo Fisichella remarkably landed the team’s first ever pole position.

The experienced Italian driver managed to finish second and take the team’s first podium as he finished behind Kimi Raikkonen in the Ferrari, in the race.

From there, the team have become consistent point scorers and have put faith in young drivers. Scotland’s Paul di Resta was widely tipped to become a future world champion, while Nico Hulkenberg has also driven for the team.

Nico Hulkenberg was brought back in 2014, along with Sergio Perez in what is one of the midfield's best driver partnerships.

Strong links with both Ferrari and Mercedes stand the team in good stead for young drivers in the future, but whether they can break out and become a leading team over the next few years, only time will tell.
