One of the encouraging sign this week has been the 900km that Force India turned during testing.
While no one is expecting them to be challenging Ferrari and McLaren for the top of the podium, the most important thing in F1 is finishing a race and this looks to be a good start for Force India. Both drivers were encouraged by their pace and the high down force behavior of the car. I think this is a good sign for the team and should bode well in the first three races if there is attrition at the top. Could be a quick way to score a point or two and take some of the travel expense off the balance sheet for 2009.
