Excerpts from the article:

'There is a growing feeling that maybe since we are a much-improved team in terms of performance and attracting more international sponsors, and sadly less Indian sponsors, there is a debate as to why the name should not be changed to give it a more international flavour," Mallya said.
There are some people who believe the current name Force India is restrictive psychologically.'

'Mallya said there was a "proposal on the table" from a sponsor regarding the name change while adding the team is in "negotiations for some additional sponsorships as well".'

'This is nothing new. I haven't in the last few years considered any name change.It's purely to do with current sponsorship, a proposal on the table and sponsorship going forward for the team.'

The name change could be good as long as it secures the future of the team & helps te team fight the top guns of the sport.

That would mean bringing in a long term title sponsor, or just 'inventing' a name like pinkspeed.
I would think their target would have to be a car maker, like Jaguar,- or Honda!

I like their current name, but I am highly biased having been brought up in India.
I do understand why they want to change it now though, and it makes perfect sense to do so. They could just drop India and call themselves Force F1.

Or maybe Force 1 (F1 for short) :D

I think force is far to confrontational and India to limiting. I would like to suggest Negotiated Resolution World.

Maybe they should be called TOF. Team Orders Fail.

There's been a lot of great suggestions so far, I feel like you've let the board down with this one.

Something simple, like VJM Racing, would do for me.

Or, bring back the name that started the whole thing: JORDAN :twisted:

Secret Squirrel Racing Please!

No if not it will be Brabham or Jaguar, their new sponsor could buy them....

Would they be allowed to rename themselves to Pink Panther?

Normally team names reflect the person/party calling the shots, such as Bruce McLaren, Eddie Jordan and Enzo Ferrari. With this logic in mind, I propose; Sergio & Co Motorsport (SACM).

Well they're unlikely to call it greedy, selfish, uncaring fraudsters ;)

Back on a more serious note (a first for me :lol: )

Why not keep the FI we know them as, but Force International. ( or Force Sale if someone pays for the graphic)
