2015 Force India set to miss another test

Yet another official test will pass before Force India's 2015 car is debuted, it emerged on Wednesday.

Already absent at Jerez, the Silverstone based team is fending off speculation of financial trouble that could even mean the season opener in Melbourne is in doubt.

But Force India declared: "We'll be there come Melbourne."

What is becoming clear, however, is that - whatever the reason - supplier trouble is holding up the final build of the first Mercedes-powered VJM08.

The most likely outcome now is another missed session for the 2015 car, even though Barcelona in a fortnight is the second of just three pre-season tests.

"Although everybody is working towards getting the VJM08 to the next test session in Barcelona, it's more likely the new car will appear at the final Barcelona test," Force India admitted on Wednesday.

"So, that would mean running the 2014 car at the first Barcelona test," the team said.
