Barcelo, Feb 18: Formula 1 team Force India will launch their new car for the 2016 season here on Monday as the Mercedes-powered VJM09 will break cover on the opening morning of the first pre-season test at the Circuit de Barcelo-Catalunya.
Nico Hulkenberg and Sergio Perez remain at the Silverstone-based outfit for a third season as teammates. Force India finished fifth in the constructors' standings last year despite a delayed start to testing.
The VJM09 will be one of several new cars uncovered in the pit lane at the Spanish circuit on the morning of the first day of pre-season testing, reports F1.com.
Meanwhile, Toro Rosso are expected to officially launch their new car on February 29 with the Ferrari-powered machine running in a temporary test livery until then. IANS
