Force India unveil 2017 car

Force India set their sights on a top-three finish as they unveiled their car for the 2017 season.

The British-based Formula One team launched the VJM10 at Silverstone racetrack, as team owner Vijay Mallya vowed to “dream big”.

Mexican driver Sergio Perez will start his fourth year as a driver with the team, alongside new recruit, 20-year-old Esteban Ocon.

The young Frenchman said: “It will be much different. The driving style will be different; much more grip so you can push more in the corner.

“The power will be less effective out of the corner because you will have no more grip, so less wheel-spin.

“So you can attack the corner differently, but more than that the I think physical point of view will be much more important than previous years.

“It was hard already in the last years but it will be twice harder this year.”

Force India enjoyed their best ever season last year, finishing behind Mercedes, Red Bull and Ferrari.

But with about half the annual budget of their rivals, they’ll face traffic on the road to the podium.
