Force India’s new 2015 car may not be available until the British Grand Prix according to driver Sergio Perez. It seems that the team had supplier issues as well as a switch of wind tunnels and this has delayed the new car.
In reports I’m reading, the car is often referred to as a “B-Spec” car but I was thinking their current car was actually a B-spec from the 2014 chassis with the new 2015 chassis set to appear originally in Monaco…now Silverstone in July. What do I know? I’m not a professional F1 journalists with years of grizzled miles indelibly written on my leather-skinned face. Due to my woeful lack of insider access, I guess the new 2015 chassis is actually a B-spec car regardless if the team are really using a modified 2014 chassis currently. Sergio said:
[quote_box_center]”We are obviously pushing very hard back at the factory trying to bring the package together. “We would love to have it for Barcelona but that didn’t happen so I think Silverstone will be the first time we have a new package.”[/quote_box_center]
It also seems that Force India and Manor are both finding delays with the latter suggesting that August is now looking like a hopeful time frame for the 2015 car…which I am assuming is being hailed as B-spec too seeing as any changed chassis from the one the team started the season with is a B-spec.
Being that this is the case, You’re currently reading our B-Spec website. Just FYI.
