The Silverstone outfit haven't finished on the podium since the 2009 Belgian GP, but the team's eye-catching new car ran impressively throughout the pre-season events at Jerez and Bahrain, with Perez and Hulkenberg topping the end-of-day timesheets on more than one occasion.
Both drivers have plenty to prove in 2014, with the highly-rated German still seeking a seat in a frontrunning team and the young Mexican desperate to make amends after being ousted from McLaren just a year after joining as Lewis Hamilton's replacement.
However, Perez is convinced that not only will the start of the 2014 campaign offer a "good opportunity" for the Mercedes-powered Force India team to impress while the Renault runners come to grips with their new powertrains, but the new technology should suit his new style of driving as well.
