    Force India unveils VJM03 at Jerez



    Force India has become the latest team to unveil its 2010 challenger, after releasing images of its new VJM03 on Tuesday morning.

    The car features the high nose and the shark-fin engine cover that has become typical of this year's designs.

    On the back of the team making big progress in 2009, as it captured its maiden pole position and podium finish, Force India is looking for more success this year.

    The new car will be tested for the first time at this week's Jerez test and its design chiefs are confident it will be a match for the machinery that has already been unveiled.

    Design director Mark Smith told AUTOSPORT that the Silverstone-based team had seen nothing on its rival cars that had caught it by surprise.

    "There's a little bit of variety out there but predominantly we are happy," he said. "You will always see something on each car that makes you think 'that's interesting' but understanding how they work on your car is the key thing.

    "We haven't looked at photos and thought 'we've missed something significant' and we're excited to get down to Jerez."

    Adrian Sutil and Vitantonio Liuzzi will race for Force India this year, with Paul di Resta installed as reserve and test driver.
