Cool Force India F1 team-Displays model car in Bangalore

Vijay Mallya, truly showed whoz the boss of Force India F1 team. He has displayed the model car of Force India in his office in UB city which is on Vittal Mallya Road. Public are thronging to see this model. This is the latest from this show man getting the publicity for his Force India team as well as Kingfisher. Enclosed are some of the snaps of the same. Sory the photos are not so good as it is taken frm my mobile camera.

Why he needs to show off he is the boss, He is THE BOSS of Force India F1 team!

And why a model car, if he wants he can display the Race car as well!

Exactly my thoughts. When he is already the BOSS why does he need to show off. If publicity is on his mind then I don't think this would be his 1st step, he sure has come a far way from that.

finneyp & riju: Everybody knows he is the boss. But the people who visit to UB City for shopping is mostly from up market people and as he is a show man, wants to show off it. This is my opinion.

I wonder how they found a spare car available inspite of all the crashes and blow outs !! Probably its a dummy/mockup of the real thing.

Well, there were some rifts between his top management guys. Classic case of 'its not my work / I am your boss / do what i say' between two people.

Mallya went on record saying that such things are usual in any organization and people know who the real boss is! I read this (think in rediff or TOI) 2 weeks back.

This is only a model of the F1 car he has and not the real one.

thats right.this car will not have the working steering wheel and nor will it have the race engine. this is an assembly of all the spare body parts which they take to races anyway. this car may go to singapore f1 after this publicity event.
