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.
Adrian Sutil might have had an accident with Kimi Räikkönen at the Monaco Grand Prix but he would not have scored those points anyways.
Latest report states that he would have been penalized for overtaking during the yellow flag period resulting in him dropping back to as low as 10th spot.
So, the Force India car was not even supposed to be where it was. And that stunt might have resulted in a faulty end result for the rest of the cars on the grid.
I don’t think I feel proud to see a F1 team named after India. The problem is that the team is unlikely to score many points next season and the team India as it is being called is going to be placed way down the order.
Now that would not make me feel much better.
Also, what gives them the right to name the team after India? Of course it is now partially owned by an Indian. But it DOES not represent India. Little technology in the car is likely to be Indian. An Indian is unlikely to be driving it.
Calling it Force India is going to be like the Indian Cricket Team which is essentially representing BCCI and not India.
Awesome news. Vijay Mallya has announced that he is taking over Spyker Formula-1 Team! The team sucks of course. But it surely is a great news. For Narain Karthikeyan too I guess…
For a change I saw some intelligent conversation on the show. KJ was an ass like ever. Shobha De was excellent. Vijay Mallya looked out of place but did a good job dealing with the crap thrown at him.
