Force India boss Vijay Mallya believes that the change is necessary in order to help the brand grow up on the F1 Grid. Speaking more on the occasion, Mallya said, “The decision to use Toyota's facility in Cologne is indicative of our ambitions to continue as a competitive force in Formula One. It's one of the most significant decisions in our history and gives us access to what is regarded as one of the finest wind tunnels in the world. We have used the facility previously on an ad hoc basis and we are aware of the advantages of basing all our aerodynamic research in Cologne. It will strengthen our approach and give us a solid base to build upon for the years to come.”

The decision is likely to benefit Force India in many more future races apart from just the 2015 FIA Formula One world championship event. Speaking more about their Brackley wind tunnel, the brand said, it would remain open for external customers.
