Force India have launched their 2016 car, the VJM09, as they look to build on a solid end to last season.
Unlike 2015, the team have brought their new car to the first winter test and drivers Nico Hulkenberg and Sergio Perez were on hand to take the covers off the new car.
The VJM09 carries over design traits from the VJM08-B, which was introduced midway through last season and coincided up an upturn in the team's performances.
Who's who at Force India in 2016

|Deputy team principal||Robert Fernley|
|Technical director||Andrew Green|
|Sporting director||Andy Stevenson|
|Chief engineer||Tom McClullough|
|Race drivers||Sergio Perez and Nico Hulkenberg|
Perez outscored Hulkenberg by 20 points in 2015, but without the distraction of the Le Mans 24 Hours this year, the German will be keen to re-establish himself as the team leader at Force India.
