The Sahara Force India Formula One Team unveiled their 2015 car the VJM08 in Mexico City today. The car was presented to the assembled media by their drivers Sergio ‘Checco’ Perez and Nico Hulkenberg.

The team head into the 2015 season looking to build on what was their strongest season in Formula One last year which saw the Silverstone based outfit score 155 points and with four Grand Prix to go they were on course to beat rivals McLaren however they ended the year behind the Woking based outfit.

Speaking at the launch, Team Principal and Managing Director of Sahara Force India Dr Vijay Mallya stated:

It’s another evolution of the contemporary look we introduced last year, which reflects the growth of the team and the global brands with which we are working.

I love the addition of silver, which makes the car appear more sleek and aggressive and I’m sure it’s something that will appeal to the fans as well. Our traditional team colours remain integrated in the livery, but we’ve given it a very modern twist.

The team are hoping that this season will bring more podiums and that they can continue to punch above their weight and fight with the big spenders in Formula One having proven their ability to do just that last season.

The Mercedes power unit which the team use was the best on the grid in 2014 and the team who will use last year’s car at the opening test will be hoping that the same is true for this year’s power unit as it will enable them to more forward up the grid.
