Force India will run a new front wing at the Turkish Grand Prix as the team bid to stay in the hunt for points.

Team principal Vijay Mallya said: “I see no reason why we cannot challenge for points at every race this year.

“Plus, we have some promising aerodynamic upgrades in the pipeline, which should make a significant difference to the performance of the car in the coming races.”

Paul di Resta will be driving at the Istanbul Park circuit for the first time.

He will get to run in all three practice sessions as test driver Nico H???lkenberg will drive Adrian Sutil’s car in first practice.

Di Resta said: “Racing at Istanbul will be a new experience for me because I didn’t take part in Friday practice last year and I’ve never driven the track. All I have to go on is the simulator work I’ve carried out in preparation for the event.

“Turn eight will be difficult, but the other corners are equally important for a good lap time. For learning a new track the simulation work helps and the team also provide me with as much information as possible. But I need to get an impression first before I think too much about it.”
