Force India ‘delighted’ to reach target


Force India are revelling in their best-ever finish in the Constructors' Championship with deputy team boss Bob Fernley saying it's the "reward for all the hard work".

Since joining the grid in 2008 following the takeover of Spyker F1, Force India have made progress in their eight seasons as they went from 10th in the debut season to fifth place this year.

Having failed to score any points in 2008, the Silverstone squad now have three podiums, one pole position and three fastest laps to behind its name.

Needless to say everyone involved with the team is over the moon.

"Everybody in the team is delighted that we have secured fifth place in the Championship with a race to spare," Fernley said.

"It’s the reward for all the hard work put in by everyone back at the factory in Silverstone, at the wind tunnel, and here at the track.

"We have been through a lot this year, but we never let our target out of our sight and we can celebrate."
