CRS would like to wish Force India Formula One Team the best of luck this week end racing in the Grand Prix at Silverstone.
Here’s Team Principal & Managing Director - Vijay’s Vision
“We always try to put our best foot forward at Silverstone. It’s where our factory is based and it’s our second home race of the season. It’s also one of the most atmospheric events on the calendar thanks to the passion of the British fans who always show tremendous support. For our team, it’s definitely a highlight of the season.
We arrive back at Silverstone off the back of our strongest performance of the year. In fact, the 16 points scored in Valencia are the most we have ever scored in one weekend. Those points have proved to be very valuable, bringing us within a point of Williams and just 16 adrift of Sauber. So we are catching up with our nearest competitors quite quickly. Now we need to keep up the momentum.
As for the drivers, they both performed brilliantly in Valencia. Paul was the only driver to pull off a one-stop strategy, which was a tremendous effort, while Nico’s fifth place was his best finish in Formula One. I believe this will be a great boost for Nico and it’s just the result he deserves after some unlucky races this year.
We will have some developments for the car this weekend and we will certainly give our all to try and come away with another strong result. I think our performance in Valencia showed just how much we have learned from the tough lessons of Canada in terms of understanding the tyres and being aggressive with the strategy. The aim this weekend is to deliver a repeat performance, pick up points and keep pushing hard to move up the championship table.”
