We are better force now: Vijay Mallya

Sahara Force India do not depend now just on wet weather conditions to upset the big teams as the car is competitive enough in all conditions, team principal Vijay Mallya asserted on Monday.

Going into Sunday’s Chinese Grand Prix, Force India are fifth in the constructors standings, behind Mercedes and ahead of Sauber and McLaren. Mallya said his team’s assessment in comparison with the rivals can be done better after races in China and Bahrain.

‘China has always produced spectacular races and it’s not uncommon to experience some wet weather, but we know that both our drivers and the VJM06 are comfortable in all conditions.

In the past we used to hope for rain as our only chance to upset the front-runners, but now we are more competitive in all conditions,’ Mallya said.

‘The next two weekends, with races in China and Bahrain, will put us in a position to see where we really stand in comparison.

Adrian Sutil said, ‘The layout is not too different to Sepang, so it should suit us again and I hope we can be strong there.’
