Force India?

Break through news! Indian business tycoon Vijay Mallya and his Amsterdam partners complete the successful acquisition of Spyker-Ferrari Formula One racing team. This further demonstrates the soaring interest in F1 racing in India, especially the youth, after Narain Karthikeyan drove the Jordan out in 2005.

They've been permitted to change the team name to Force India frm next season. Wow, the Indian sponsors and corporates must be celebrating that. For all Formula One fans, the 2007 season climax was a feast, with Raikonnen claiming the clown in the last couple of seconds in the season, phew! that was some excitement! To add to that, now we hear about Force India. A small step for Mallya, a giant leap for Indian sports...

'Force India' is so damn cheesy in my opinion. It is just meant to get more sponsors. The team is not going to be based in India and neither is it going to be filled with Indian engineers. I just wish that they would come up with a decent name that befits a F1 race team.

On a positive note...the latest good news is that Karun Chandhok, who drove in GP2 this season and also won the race at Spa, is going to be given a test by Red Bull. Lets see how that pans out.
