After firing technical cheifs Colin Kolles and Mike Gascoyne and beginning a new technical alliance with McLaren-Mercedes, Force India boss Vijay Mallya is giving us a bold prediction for next season and the 2010 season.
I think i can certainly aspire to winning races maybe in 2010. For 2009 I will be very happy if we are regularly in the points. That would already be a major step forward.
Well, considering that current drivers Adrian Sutil and Giancarlo Fisichella haven’t done much of anything since arriving at FI, I wouldn’t quite guarantee victories, or for that matter points. But wait, he may be changing the butts in the seat as well.
“They will recommend what they believe to be in the best interests of my team and I have to decide. And I would be hard pressed to ignore their advice.
There are rumors that current McLaren test driver Pedro de la Rosa may get one of the seats and current Mercedes DTM driver Paul di Resta may get an F1 ride in a McLaren or Force India car.
