Force India unveil their new car and new livery.

 

With Williams the first team to unveil their new car the next team to do so was Force India. VJ Malya was in Mexico to show off the new car with new sponsor TelMex. with many mentions of the new Mexican GP we can only surmise this was all paid for by someone else other the FI budget team.

Anyway the car sports the new “nub” nose and a new colour scheme that sees the end of the Indian flag inspired white, orange and green and is replaced by a silver, orange, black which to my eyes makes it look much more like the old 2002 arrows or ironically the Spyker team which can be traced back in Force India’s roots as a team!

Jean-Pierre Beltoise: 1972 Monaco GP winner dies at age of 77

 

Former Formula 1 driver Jean-Pierre Beltoise, the winner of the 1972 Monaco Grand Prix, has died at the age of 77.

The Frenchman’s Monaco triumph in a Matra was one of eight podium finishes in an 84-race F1 career between 1967 and 1974.

The French motor sport federation (FFSA) confirmed his passing in a statement on Monday, adding that Beltoise “is and will remain an example for a whole generation of drivers”.

He died following a double stroke at his holiday home in Dakar, Senegal.

Beltoise started out as a motorcycle racer, winning 11 French championships, before switching to sports cars and F1.
