Force India is hopeful that further upgrades to its car can help it build on the momentum of its recent performance upturn at this weekend's Hungarian Grand Prix.
The team has impressed in the past two races, and just missed out on a haul of points in Germany after Adrian Sutil collided with Kimi Raikkonen. With a car upgrade that arrived at Silverstone having played a big part in that step forward, the team is looking forward to more steps in Hungary that could help it move forward even more.
"We have a few more parts for Hungary," explained chief race engineer Dominic Harlow. "It's not the same magnitude as Silverstone, but we're keeping pace with our development plans and hopefully with the other teams.
"There are some front wing, brake duct and floor developments that we are pushing through. There are also the usual small mechanical changes for Hungary. We will also do a little bit of extra work on the set-up side for that circuit because it's quite tricky."
Harlow also thinks that the tight confines of the Hungaroring could help play to the strengths of the team's current car.
"Looking back to Monaco, that was the real start of our upturn in performance and pace," he said. "With Hungary being a similar downforce level and configuration, I'd like to think that we should suit reasonably well the demands of this track as well.
"We'll also be back on the softer tires again and I think with this compound we tend to go pretty well. The only tire that's been genuinely difficult for us is the hardest one, but we're quite happy with the way we use the soft and the supersoft. We're quite optimistic."
Force India is pushing hard with car development, and Harlow confirmed that a further update package is scheduled for the European GP at Valencia.
"It's another upgrade target for us with a slightly bigger package of new parts coming. We will have further changes to the front wing again, and changes to the bargeboard area, and the front of the floor and sidepods. Visually, it will be fairly different. I thought last year Valencia leveled things a little bit, and we looked reasonably strong there, particularly with Giancarlo [Fisichella]. I would hope that we would continue our trend."
