London: Sergio Perez believes Force India will be F1's surprise package this season after the British-based team vowed to break into the sport's elite. "Last year we finished fourth so I see no reason why we cannot improve," said Perez.

"The base is solid. That means a massive year for us, but I think Force India will be the big surprise. I really hope we can improve. I am very optimistic about the car. Of course it is easy to talk now, but I have a feeling that Force India has done a tremendous job," he added.
