This is perhaps the news of the year. Force India did an incredible job at the Belgian Grand Prix.
Things were looking great for Mr. Mallya yesterday. Force India was in a good position to score their first points of the season and Bangalore Royal Challengers were in the finals of the Indian Premier League 2009 tournament.
The first night race in Formula-1 and that too a street race! Awesome. Massa did excellent to be on pole. I expect Hamilton to win this one. Alonso was unlucky. And Force India flew to crash on the wall. Cannot find a video of that though.
Fisichella retired. Sutil was 16th. Royal Challengers are at the bottom of the table in IPL I think. Mr. Mallya is not going to be a happy man.
12th and 19th position. Not too bad…
But podium in 2 years? You wish!
Not a very big surprise there. Hamilton was fifth. And Alonso was eighth.
Force India had their men at 12th and 20th position. Not bad for a second race.
The first race itself has shown how insane it is for companies to survive in the Formula-1.
Sure, crazy fans would say that this is just the very first race. But the truth is that the team is destined to remain a failure. When you cannot develop your own engine… You would die in F-1.
Honda and Toyota are automotive giants of the world. They have the resources and money to develop the best technologies. They are the minnows in the Formula-1 world right now. If they are taking so much time to challenge the likes of Ferrari and McLaren… how long would Force India take to reach the podium?
