Force India is hoping to benefit from its new association with the aerospace firm EADS (European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company). The company develops and markets civil and military aircraft, as well as missiles, space rockets, satellites, and related systems. And now they're helping out with F1.

The German magazine Auto Motor und Sport reveals that four personnel of the EADS subsidiary Airbus, the aircraft manufacturer, are already stationed at the formula one team's Silverstone factory and working on aerodynamics and CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics).

The EADS association has reportedly blossomed due to team co-owner Vijay Mallya's existing links with Airbus, the supplier of planes to his major Indian airline Kingfisher.

"I have a contract with these two companies so that they can help Force India in the area of aerodynamics," Mallya, the flamboyant billionaire, said.

"If you can build the Airbus A380 and the Eurofighter, you certainly know a lot about it," he added.
