Force India chairman Vijay Mallya said the resurgent outfit would be giving it everything in Sunday's Brazilian Grand Prix, hoping to garner as many points as possible from the penultimate round of the 2009 Formula One Championship.
Mallya did not hide his disappointment at the team's failure to get into points in the Japanese Grand Prix in Suzuka, where the track suited them. With Interlagos too being a low-to-medium downforce track, Mallya hopes to add to its World Championship points' total.
"We will be giving it everything we have," Mallya, also the team principal, said.
"Brazil should suit us, our car has performed well on tracks with a similar configuration, and now we've got the taste for points, we want to get some more. BMW are 11 points ahead of us in the constructors' championship so if Tonio and Adrian push hard we could at least close that gap.
"It's going to be difficult but we have everything to gain and nothing to lose by making this our aim," he added.
"We had high hopes for the Japanese Grand Prix. To a certain extent we got there as we qualified well, ran towards the front of the field and raced with larger teams. However, of course we missed out on points again so ultimately it was frustrating we could not capitalise on this," Mallya said.
