Although at the back of the field at present, Force India has indicated it can keep up with the pace of formula one development.

While bigger and more competitive teams like Ferrari, BMW and Red Bull worked on the concept at their factories, Silverstone based Force India rolled out an interim 'double decker' diffuser prototype last weekend in Bahrain.

In qualifying, Adrian Sutil outqualified both Toro Rossos, and his teammate Giancarlo Fisichella also escaped the last row of the grid.

Moreover, in South Africa to watch over his team in the Indian cricket league, team owner Vijay Mallya this week said a further step in the diffuser concept will be introduced next weekend at Barcelona.

"We have another update coming in Barcelona, more particularly an improved version of this interim diffuser, and some further aero upgrades," the Indian billionaire is quoted as saying by the news agency PTI.

In Bahrain, the pace of the entire field was covered by a margin of less than two seconds.

"In the midfield everything is separated by hundredths now, and to be in the hunt is quite an impressive achievement," Mallya added.
