Force India are determined to catch up further with the likes of Williams and Sauber at this weekend's British GP.
After struggling during the Canadian GP, Force India hit back hard in Valencia with Nico Hulkenberg finishing fifth and Paul di Resta coming home in seventh place.
The healthy haul of points has helped the team to move closer their main rivals in the Constructors' Championship, and team principal Vijay Mallya hopes they can emulate that success at Silverstone.
"We arrive back at Silverstone off the back of our strongest performance of the year," he said.
"In fact, the 16 points scored in Valencia are the most we have ever scored in one weekend. Those points have proved to be very valuable, bringing us within a point of Williams and just 16 adrift of Sauber. So we are catching up with our nearest competitors quite quickly. Now we need to keep up the momentum."
He added: "We will have some developments for the car this weekend and we will certainly give our all to try and come away with another strong result. I think our performance in Valencia showed just how much we have learned from the tough lessons of Canada in terms of understanding the tyres and being aggressive with the strategy."
Hulkenberg believes his career-high P5 at the European Grand Prix will give him a boost.
"I think it was a result we needed in order to stay in touch with Williams and Sauber in the Championship," he said.
"It's a boost for me, of course, but I think it was the sort of result we have been expecting for a while now. We thought we could do something similar in Canada, but things didn't work out, so it was good to get some solid points in the bag in Valencia and start showing our real potential."
