“I?óÔé¼Ôäóm glad that Sahara Force India has given me this great opportunity,” said Razia. “It?óÔé¼Ôäós a chance to work with an established team and I?óÔé¼Ôäóm sure I will learn a lot from the experience.”
“I?óÔé¼Ôäóve raced at the Magny-Cours circuit before in the junior categories and enjoy the track. It?óÔé¼Ôäós very smooth with some quick corners so it will be a good venue for testing. My objective is simply to follow the programme and help the team as much as possible.”
