leave a comment

The Force India formula one team unveiled their 2010 Challenger today named after Vijay Mallya the VJM3. The car is as usual in the colours of the Indian tri-colour. The car has a shark fin and also a sophisticated front wing. Looks like a good amount of aerodynamics went into this car.

The FORCE India team would be participating in the next stage of formula one tests. It would be interesting to see where they lie compared to the other teams.
