Force India has confirmed it will bring an updated aerodynamic package to the Singapore Grand Prix this weekend. The Silverstone outfit will be hoping to keep its strong run of results up, having scored double top ten finishes in the two races following the summer break.
The team currently sits on 32 points, having started the Belgian Grand Prix with zero following confirmation it would run as a new entry. The new upgrades will be used in free practice on Friday before an evaluation is carried out to see if they can be used throughout the remainder of the weekend.
"We have more performance to bring to the car this weekend with an updated aero package," team principal Otmar Szafnauer confirmed. “It’s never easy to introduce and understand new parts during Friday practice. But hopefully we can unlock some performance straight away."
Unusual circumstances following the team's change of ownership meant that it was stripped of all previous points scored this year and forced to line up as a brand new entry. However, Szafnauer has applauded the team on how it has performed since being re-branded to Racing Point Force India.
"32 points combined from Spa and Monza is an excellent effort," he said. "The team deserves credit for performing so well after all the uncertainty that surrounded us in August. We arrive in Singapore after two strong weekends where we maximized what was available to us.
“I think Singapore is another opportunity to build on this momentum and keep scoring points. Traditionally we have always gone well there and both drivers enjoy street circuits."
