Force India confirms B car for Austria

Force India has confirmed reports it is working on a 'B' version of its 2015 car.

With winter troubles having delayed this year's VJM08, drivers Sergio Perez and Nico Hulkenberg are now struggling merely to race out of the ignominious 'Q1' segment of qualifying.

"It is disappointing to go out in Q1," German Hulkenberg said in Shanghai, "but unfortunately the final lap just was not quick enough."

Media reports earlier this week suggested work is now progressing on a 'B' version of the 2015 car, although a debut in time for Barcelona next month has been ruled out.

"We are now concentrating fully on our B version," confirmed deputy team boss Bob Fernley, according to Germany's Auto Motor und Sport.

"We are planning for the Austrian grand prix," he revealed. "This is ideal because there are also two days of testing straight afterwards."
