As expected. I was just looking through the Facebook page and they seem to be getting a lot of hate, unnecessary of course. All his fellow Scots seem pretty disappointed. A good decision none the less.

This driver lineup is strong and positive. Good to see them wanting to move up and challenge the likes of Lotus coz I personally think this pairing is better than that of Lotus nd McLaren..let's hope the car is good too

Di Resta likely being out of F1 is a tad harsh but Hulk and Checo was the best lineup Force India could have got, AND they got some sponsorship money out of it too. Always nice to have a little extra dosh. In all honesty both are probably better drivers than Di Resta and Paul didn't really do himself any favours this year. He was good when the car was good but when FI needed the pick up scraps he crashed and he ended up behind both Hulk and Checo by year's end.

Really looking forward to Force India though. Hulkenberg truth be told is ready for a top drive so should do the job and Perez can put in some stonking performances when he's on it, just wish he was more consistent. I fancy Hulkenberg will win out in the end. His quali should make the difference imo.

They signed Perez to pay for Hulkenberg and for no other reason, he's an average driver amongst a lot of average drivers and that's where his and Maldonados money talks. Real talent is not a prerequisite for F1 anymore
and long as you have the cash you can get a drive, it shows just what state half the grid is in.

Has Mailya ever had a film career?
I only ask as when I saw the picture I thought it was an advert for the re-release of the film Coneheads :)

Sergio wise to remember to keep the watch on the left hand and shake hands with the right....

Average drivers don't get podiums in a Sauber. I'd like to know where you get your information from, seeing as you think FI are not doing good financially. Just so you know, United Breweries, the company that finance Force India, has a revenue of four billion dollars.
