Force India's COO Otmar Szafnaeur has said that all the development on their car has been halted till the new buyer scenario has been sorted out.
"The designs are done. It is just a matter of paying suppliers to start building the tools and making the car parts," Otmar Szafnaeur said told motorsport.com.
"It doesn't happen overnight, but we will be able to implement those plans. We should be able to have some good update, hopefully significant one, but only time will tell."
Otmar further added that the team is obviously not happy with this years results but suggested they aren't too far off the top midfield runners.
"Finishing 13th and 14th isn’t great," Szafnaeur admitted. We weren’t that far off, maybe two to three tenths off some of the midfield runners. But we just didn’t have the pace."
