Sahara Force India gave a first impression of how the VJM08 will look when it makes its track debut next month.
The new car livery was presented on the past season’s car, boasting elegant combination of silver and black with the team’s traditional colour of orange streaking from the nose cone to the rear of the car in two symmetrical curves. Key to the new livery is the introduction of several commercial partners for 2015.
With relatively stable technical regulations, the most significant changes from the outside will appear at the front of the car with the lowering of the front of the chassis and nose. “The front of the car looks very different from what we had developed previously,” explains Technical Director Andrew Green. “It is a redesign that involved a lot of work over the winter, as the new regulations caused a loss in terms of downforce and we’ve been working to claw back all that performance.”
