Is Force India really a 'cash strapped' team? I thought their top ten constructors finishes and the owners' financial backing would have made them financially secure (regardless of said owners' other businesses floundering). So is the driver decision down to money?

Its funny, usually I complain about established drivers losing seats to new younger drivers, yet this here is the exception.

I will never understand why a team would re-hire the driver they dropped a year ago. (except for money, "cash-Strapped" team needs money, but even then, it still rings silly to me)

Waste of space Sutil is. His best finish in F1 was 4th!

I just don't understand why they have rehired him.

@ Nealio Just because he is quicker than Di Resta in testing does not mean he is a quicker driver! as most people understand, people are on different fuel loads, doing different kinds of programs.

As someone once mentioned when testing started, the teams who were fastest in testing in 2012 ended up being in the 4th, 5th or 6th positions by the end of the season in the constructors championship.

I'm not at Force India fan, but I appreciate them being around, to make up the numbers in the paddock...!!
But, (and I'm not indian :-))... What's the point of calling a racing team FORCE india, when all it seems to be is survival - with pay drivers... (Sutil revival)
I know, Chandhok and Karthikeyan is not good enough to fill in a seat - but what's left is... Vijay Mallya, and a couple of sponsors of indian origin.. (in trouble financial as I understand)...

I hope not!!!!!!!!, but fear, FI - is out of the game next year...
