Force India has given the VJM08 its official debut on the second day of the final pre-season F1 test at the Circuit de Catalunya.

Slightly earlier than planned, the car completed its installation lap in the hands of Nico Hulkenberg before lunchtime ahead of what should be a longer programme this afternoon.

The car has suffered numerous delays over the winter, with Force India forced to miss the opening Jerez test and persevere with the 2014-specification VJM07 during the second test at the Circuit de Catalunya.
