Force India plans ‘B’ car strategy for 2008

Force India will begin the 2008 season with essentially the car used by Spyker at the end of 2007, it has emerged.

But according to the Dutch magazine Formule 1 Race Report, the newly acquired Silverstone based team plans to introduce a substantially modified model – a ‘B’-spec version – around the time of the 2008 British grand prix in July.

Spyker/Force India’s policy is at odds with the more conventional practice in F1 of starting each season with an entirely new car and adding incremental development throughout the year.

“We plan a large step in the second part of 2008,” team boss Colin Kolles confirmed to the magazine.
