After a successful couple of weeks in Asia, Vijay Mallya is excited to be returning to America for this weekend’s United States Grand Prix, a highlight of the year.
Sahara Force India Formula 1 Team had a successful Japanese Grand Prix after both drivers finished in the top ten, with Sergio Perez in seventh and Nico Hulkenberg in eighth. After carrying on this progress from the Malaysian Grand Prix, team principle Mallya believes this strong form is a good sign for the races to come.
“Malaysia and Japan were positive races for us,” said Mallya. “We were close to maximising our potential at each of those events and that’s all we can do at this stage of the season.
“Sepang and Suzuka provide a tough test of a Formula One car and our strong form is a good sign for the races to come. We’re in the middle of a very busy spell for the sport with four races within a month.”
With it slowly creeping towards the end of the 2016 Formula 1 season, Mallya believes it is important the Silverstone-based team keep their focus.
“The motivation and belief in the team are high,” added Mallya. “The visit to North America is always a highlight of the year.
“At such a busy time, it’s important to keep focus: the margins between success and failure are very small and we need to perform at the top of our game in every area. I’m proud of the job we are doing and excited about the challenge ahead of us.”
