Here’s a closer look at the Force India VJM04 with a voiceover by the team’s technical director Andrew Green.
Green says the new car is mechanically similar to its predecessor but there are several important aerodynamic changes.
“The removal of the double diffuser resulted in quite a substantial loss of downforce which we spent the winter trying to recover.
“From the outside the biggest change you’ll is a move to a ‘blade’ roll hoop. It just gave us a small packaging advantage, we felt, so we went down that route.”
