Force India has revealed the livery it will use for the 2015 F1 season.
The livery was displayed on a show car as the team’s new design will not appear until February. However the display car sported a nose design which was not seen on Force India’s 2014 car.
Technical director Andrew Green the change in regulations at the front of the car had “caused a loss in terms of downforce and we’ve been working to claw back all that performance”. The front of the car has been lowered compared to the 2014 design.
The team enjoys greater backing from Mexican companies in 2015 ahead of the return of Mexico’s round of the world championship in November. Alcohol brand Jose Cuervo has joined the team from Sauber alongside Claro and Telcel which are both part of the AMerica Movil telecommunications group.
Japanese information technology firm NEC is another acquisition from Sauber. The team also has new backing from lubricant company Quaker State.
