Sahara Force India unveils VJM05

3rd Feb 2012 8:46 pm

Sahara Force India unveils its 2012 title challenger, the VJM05.

Force India has unveiled its new car for the 2012 season, dubbed the VJM05, at Silverstone.
 
The Mercedes-engined car features a nose design similar to that of the Caterham, and heavily revised sidepods in line with the new exhaust rules. Force India has also dropped its 'blade' style rollhoop design.
 
It is hoped that the new car will allow Force India to challenge for the top five in the constructors' championship after finishing a best-ever sixth last year. The team has replaced Adrian Sutil with Nico Hulkenberg, while Paul di Resta stays on in the sister car.
 
"I think every individual in this team has put a lot of effort into his car," di Resta told Sky Sports News. "The momentum we had at the end of last year, hopefully we've managed to carry that over but I must say it is a fine piece of art. Hopefully when it gets to track it'll be able to show what it's capable of."
