Sau Paulo, Brazil: Sahara Force India will get a boost of 50 million pounds for an improved showing in the next season, said team principal Vijay Mallya who does not rule out the possibility of Adrian Sutil returning to his team in place of outgoing Nico Hulkenberg.

"We have shown that every year we get better, so we expect nothing less next season. But it is also time for us to look at capital investment (the board has recently approved a £ 50 million capital investment programme for the team). In order to go up the ladder even further we need to have the tools and the facilities, so we are looking at some investments which will start paying out rich dividends in the future," Mallya was quoted as saying by

Mallya bought the team, formerly known as Spykar and Jordan in 2007, and entered into a partnership with Sahara Group, which now has a 42.5 per cent stake in the team.
