After teasing the car last week, Force India officially debuted the VJM07 today at Jerez.

Teammates Sergio Perez and Nico Hulkenberg were on hand for testing.

It appears the car’s designers went a similar route to Sauber with their front end.

Force India have one of the most exciting driver lineups in 2014. Perez joins the team after a brief, single season stint at McLaren. His departure felt like it had less to do with on-track performance and more to do with team politics. The Mexican was primarily brought on in haste after Lewis Hamilton announced his departure. It would have been difficult for any young driver to meet McLaren’s huge expectations in just 1 season. Force India should end up being a much better place for Perez to flourish.

Nico Hulkenberg who is considered by many to be the best of the rest, myself included, returns to the team after a season at Sauber. He was tipped to be Kimi Raikkonen’s replacement at Lotus after a brilliant 2013 performance, but the cash strapped team chose money over talent and signed pay driver Pastor Maldonado. In the right car, Hulkenberg can fight with the best in the sport.

Force India are definitely one of the teams to watch in 2014.
