The former Jordan team has gone through its fourth name change in as many years and is now Force India after a takeover by Indian billionaire Vijay Mallya.

The ambition is to be podium contenders in time for the planned first Indian Grand Prix in 2010.

There have been encouraging signs in 2008, particularly a brilliant drive by Adrian Sutil in Monaco.

But there is a lot of work still to do, even if this year's car suggests they are going in the right direction.
