Force India to stage live team launch this week

19 Jan 2015

Force India will provide fans with their first glimpse of the 2015 Formula One landscape this week when they reveal the livery for their new car, the VJM09, on Wednesday.

The team launch takes place at the Museo Soumaya museum in Mexico City, although it will also be broadcast live and online from 1500 GMT on the team's official website.

The British-based squad have retained 2014 drivers Nico Hulkenberg and Sergio Perez for the forthcoming season, when they will be looking to build on the momentum of their sixth-place finish in last year's constructors' championship.

Perez scored the second podium in Force India's history last season when he finished third in Bahrain, while Hulkenberg claimed ninth in the drivers' standings - equalling the best overall finish by a Force India driver.

Force India's team launch will take place eight days before the first confirmed official car launch, with McLaren set to take the covers off their MP4-30 on January 29.

Ferrari will follow suit one day later, after announcing an online reveal of their 2015 F1 car on January 30 - just one day before the first official test of the season, which takes place at Jerez in Spain on February 1-4.
