Force India B car passes crash tests

Force India is on track to roll out its highly-anticipated 'B' car in Austria.

Following winter delays, Nico Hulkenberg and Sergio Perez have struggled to hide their frustration so far in 2015 as they race with the VJM08.

"Definitely impatient," German Hulkenberg answered in Canada when asked to sum up his mood ahead of the seventh round of the season.

Even the road to getting the 'B' car has been bumpy, as it emerged recently that the crucial 'short nose' for the new package had failed the FIA crash test.

But deputy boss Bob Fernley said in Montreal: "We passed all the crash test requirements this week.

"We failed the first one, got through the second one and we're on target to try it (the car) out at the test," he is quoted by the Daily Mail.

He is referring to the post-Austrian grand prix test at the Red Bull Ring, after which the team will push to have two 'B' machines up and running to race at Silverstone.
