New Force India unlikely to make second test

04 Feb 2015

Force India have confirmed that it is unlikely their 2015 Formula One car will be ready in time for the second pre-season test in Spain on February 19-22.

"Although everybody is working towards getting the VJM08 to the next test session in Barcelona, it's more likely the new car will appear at the final Barcelona test," the team said in a statement. "So, that would mean running the 2014 car at the first Barcelona test."

Force India announced last month that they would not run the new car in this week's opening Jerez test, but had planned to run their 2014 machine instead until making a late call to skip the session entirely because 'learning opportunities would have been limited'.
