LONDON, Dec 4 - Force India will use Toyota's wind tunnel in Germany for all its aerodynamic testing during 2015, the team announced on Thursday (Dec 4).
Team principal Vijay Mallya in a statement said: "The decision to use Toyota's facility in Cologne is indicative of our ambitions to continue as a competitive force in F1.
"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."
The team said their own wind tunnel facilities in Brackley, England, would remain operational and available for external customers.
Mercedes-powered Force India finished the season sixth overall.
