I don't see any single difference from last year, except the modesty panel. Lack of money showing.

Yep.

So far we have 2 cars that are identical to last years', one black car with slightly more red than last year, and one red car with slightly more black. How exciting.

The nose still looks like it ate a lot of pies.

It's probably why di Resta didn't get the chop.

This car is ready to go out today as well, which makes you wonder considering the lack of change...

Could be a long year at the back for Paul.

The two other cars look close to last years cars as well. What's the issue with F-I being the same?

Car in post 4 is last year car(or 2011) with vanity panel(show car). It is not the new car, there is many differences. RW plates, engine air intake, exhausts, vertical panels close to the radiator intakes. FW connection to the nose. Radiator intakes are also different.

Aethra was on last year's car as well, so it doesn't necessarily mean he's the second driver.

Looks like a fake to me. Captured 3s after posting? And the twitter user name looks different on the top tweet compared to the one below it. You would expect them to look identical.

Sky Sports F1 ‏@SkySportsF1
Bob Fernley says Force India will not name their second driver until after the Jerez test http://www1.skysport...til-after-Jerez … #skyf1


Can anyone explain how this isn't a sign of some rather large problems?
