221 Force India VJM2 (Mercedes) (2009)
Force India VJM2 (2009) Engine 2400cc Mercedes FO 108W with 760bhp
Chassis carbon fibre composite monocoque with Zylon side panels.
The chassis for VJM2 was initially designed by chief technical officer Mike Gascoigne and team principle Colin Kolles but both were released from their contracts after a disagreement with team owner Vijay Mallya. The team decided late in development to switch engine supplier from Ferrari to a McLaren Mercedes engine along with gearboxes and hydraulics resulting in a redesign of some parts.
For the 2009 season the contracted drivers were Adrian Sutil and Giancarlo Fisichella, who left the team to join Ferrari after the Belgian Grand Prix to be replaced for the final five races by Vitantonio Liuzzi. The team scored 13 points for the season, 5 for Fisichella plus a pole position and 8 by Sutil leaving them 9th in the constructors Championship
