Force India is very secure at the moment , 6th place in wcc is given this season and maybe 5th and more sponsors will come in result of that , in fact it is the most secure team in the midfield
Results =/= security. Especially not this early in the season. They're doing quite well on performance, sure, but they're sitting on a financial base that's not so stable. Sahara's financial situation is known to be weak (and today's news includes potential signs that it's getting weaker, if you read between the lines) while much of Mallya's business empire is also known to be on very shaky ground (or very grounded, in the case of the airline!).
Force India's future is very much subject to the future of the businesses that own the team. Mallya sold to Sahara to bring in funding that he could no longer provide. Would appear Sahara's ability to fund is reaching the bottom of the barrel as well.
They're vulnerable. Performing very well, and very solid in terms of everything that remains within the sphere of F1, but still vulnerable due to the outside influences imported by being owned by financially weak entities who could be forced to pull out at any time. Or, as Sahara has made clear with the IPL situation, pull out voluntarily at the drop of a hat because they don't like something the administration said/did (which makes the current non-Concorde situation a worry in my mind).
