Default Force India lauched Force India Formula 1 Academy

Force India F1 team has launched F1 Academy aimed at hunting for Indian racing talents and provide a well funded platform to move into the international motorsports.

Before you get your hopes up, this program is intended for people between the ages of 14-17.

A very commendable move by Force India F1 team.

Great initiative. Moving straight to formula cars is tough and world over more acceptable path is to move from karting to smaller cars and then formula cars.

Truly a great initiative. Wish such things were available when we were in our teens.
This will certainly help identify, develop and guide young talent into making a successful career in motorsport.
Thanks Dr. Mallya

This was launched by Force India in Mallya's hunt for an Indian driver worthy of F1. But I don't think Mallya is going to get his drivers by doing this. Mere motorsport drivers, maybe, but F1 drivers, No.
To Make a career out of motorsport a person needs to not only be an enthusiast but also convert it to his daily bread.
Focus, Confidence, Skill, a large bank account and Luck are part and parcel of the foundations of Motorsport, like it or not.

Anyways that's just me. But of course there should be a base somewhere, so good going Mallya. Please make it a serious permanent academy if at all.
