Giancarlo Fisichella testing the Force India VJM01 in Barcelona

Vijay Mallya’s team will hope to emulate Red Bull and advance from a small time back of the grid team to championship winners. 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 as they have slowly but surely clawed their way from being the slowest car to the leading team from the midfield.

The team has a chequered history as it went through several different guises from Jordan to Spyker to Midland before finally settling on Force India in 2008. The team didn’t look like lasting much longer than either of the predecessors as they cruised around at the back of the grid but the 2009 Belgian grands prix changed the overall perception of them. 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 in the race as he finished behind Kimi Raikkonen in the Ferrari and pushed him hard throughout.

From there the team have become consistent point’s scorers and have put faith in young drivers. Scotland’s Paul di Resta is widely tipped to become a future world champion, while Nico Hulkenberg also spent a year with the team in 2012. Di Resta is seen as the driver to lead Force India into an era of race wins and world championships but it could be argued that the team lack the world class driver needed for this to happen.

With bigger teams such as Red Bull and Lotus looking at new drivers for next year it could be conceived that di Resta would leave the team in his hunt for a race winning car. 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.
