Sahara Force India reveals its colours for the 2014 F1 season
Vijay Mallya owned Formula One team Sahara Force India has given us a sneak preview of their 2014 car sporting all-new livery which will be unveiled officially at the test session in Jerez next week.
The VJM07 now comes in black alongside the traditional colours of saffron, white and green. The car now wears the names of telecommunications giant Claro, lubricant specialist Roshfrans and Astana foundation.
“The VJM07 looks stunning and the new livery reflects the way Sahara Force India is evolving,” said Vijay Mallya. “I’ve always believed our cars have been the most eye-catching, but adding black as a main colour gives us a fierce new look.”
The new colours may be the biggest change for Force India on the outside, but delving deeper the entire car has is pretty much new, to comply with change in regulations for the 2014 season.
“Almost every single part is a new design, from the front wing right back to the diffuser. The genetics of the VJM07 still lie in the 2013 car, but we've had to achieve the same results in a slightly different way,” said Andrew Green, Technical Director at Sahara Force India.
The 2014 season of Formula One will be underway from March 16 at Australia. Indian fans are in for some disappointing news, with the race at Noida being scrapped for the current season.
