They've been trying to change it for two years. Maybe this time, with new owners, it will actually happen...

At this point it would be stranger if they kept the name.

It wouldn't be unprecedented, but how much of a connection does the current team have to India?

Previous suggestions for a new name were very uninspiring, so if the name change is to take place, I hope that there are some better options on the table this time.

A young driver (Jehan Daruvala)?

I still think they should go with "Force Pink" ... or "The Pink Panthers" .... but that's all water under the bridge eh?  :DD

Best Regards,
Cal :)

Depends if BWT stick around. They were, after all, sponsoring Force India with a loan up to this point, and it's not clear the team needs a loan any more...

(This will not stop me from sending them a boxful of Pink Panther wafers to fuel their car build!)

If anything I hope they do away with that hideous
pink livery.

Not a Pink Panther fan Dare?  :confused:

Seriously though, if they added more white and "water blue" ... it may look a lot better with only a hint of pink on the car??

Since BWT was only providing a loan to the team, I expect them to be replaced with a company willing to pay for a more traditional "give the team money" sponsorship deal.

If nothing else, less scope for bizarre court cases centring around not giving money to a sponsor...

My good memory of Force India is Fisi winning the
pole at Spa and almost wining the race.

I kind of like the pink.  :D

The pink did the job of making the car visible.

So much better than a field of reds and blues.

In that regard, I found it baffling that Sauber Alfa Romeo chose to go with a white and red car that looked so similar to the Williams livery that had been in use for a few seasons.  Odd decision, hardly made their car stick out.  Apart from the fact their car was mid pack and the Williams miles behind.

I wish Sauber would go back their 2004 livery,one of the best ever
