This is not the name of any new indian task force. This is the name first indian formula one team owned by vijay mallaya , famous for his parties and kingfisher calender.

    Yea Force India should rock, Mallya said after the second race that they have enhancements in order which should improve timings by about 0.4-0.5 secs.These enhancements will all be in by the Bahrain race. With Fisi behind the wheels, there should be no problems of converting the enhancements into actual race results…..Sutil suckz tho,n i believe Karun or some other Indian driver should be brought in…….
