Force India joins up with Draco.

A new collaboration between International Draco Racing and Force India F1 was revealed during a special event at the Franciacorta circuit in Brescia today (Tuesday).

The deal was made public when Draco, which has won seven European Championships and propelled eight drivers into Formula One during its 20 year history, unveiled its World Series car dressed in the colours of Vijay Mallya's F1 team.

'Through this new collaboration Force India will observe the emergent drivers in the World Series by Renault 3.5 championship, drawing from Draco the best drivers,' said a Draco statement.

"We worked on this project to have a new road for our Drivers,” confirmed Draco team owner Adriano Morini. “With Force India have found a similar mentality and so we could create this new challenge."

Nadia Morini added that Draco is now close to creating a full 'chain' from Karting to F1.

"With this collaboration we will have a preferential way for our drivers to F1. As everyone knows, until now we have placed many talents, but this is a new and more direct way," said Morini. "The world of F1 has changed, drivers are recruited very young and this project with the Force India is ideal for both.

"We have created a chain with the Draco Junior Team in Formula Renault 2.0, with Facondini by Draco and RedStep-Draco. We want to arrive to the kart, in order to have a full program. Now we enjoy with our team this beautiful day! I want to thank those who cooperated in this project."
