"Force India F1 is a Formula One team that came into existence after Orange India Holdings, which is a consortium of Watson Ltd. (Dr. Vijay Mallya) and Strongwind (the Mol family), bought the Spyker F1 team in October 2007 for 88 million euro"

Debateable that it's a new team. "Force India F1 is the new name for the Spyker F1 team" would be just as accurate would it not? --kingboyk 14:12, 13 November 2007 (UTC)

Well, depends how they did it, whether Force India F1, as a new consortium/business bought the spyker team and all its assets, taking on its contracts (including its spot on the grid) or whether it is still operated as the same registered company. Havn't looked at any specifics to be honest. Narson 14:58, 13 November 2007 (UTC)
I see. I'm not proposing that they share an article by the way (it would get too confusing), just wondered if the lead could be a bit clearer that this is at least partly a continuation of an old team... --kingboyk 15:11, 13 November 2007 (UTC)
The convention to date has been to treat a combined change of ownership and name as a new team (like Toleman/Benetton Formula/post-2000 Renault F1 or Stewart Grand Prix/Jaguar Racing/Red Bull Racing). I have to admit that 'Jordan/Midland/Spyker/Force India' is starting to stretch that convention, with four different names and nationalities in as many years! Hopefully, for the sake of the team, this trend will stop now. If this kind of rapid change becomes the norm we may need to reconsider how we handle it. 4u1e 16:30, 13 November 2007 (UTC)
 :) Righto, thanks. --kingboyk 13:15, 14 November 2007 (UTC)


Please someone change Force India's logo. FIA forbid this one because it looks like F1, so the "I" is now minuscule. Fsarmony (talk) 14:55, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

Results table[edit]

the results table for 2009 is incorrect. Fisichella scored his second place at the belgium race. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:11, 20 March 2010 (UTC)

That's what the table says (the race labels are above the results). DH85868993 (talk) 07:33, 20 March 2010 (UTC)
