Force India team principal Vijay Mallya believes that his outfit can maintain their current momentum into this weekend's Spanish Grand Prix.

Force India has enjoyed a strong start to 2014, with the team currently sitting in third place in the championship.

"I think we can feel extremely satisfied with our performance during the first four races," he said.

"We’ve been in the points in every race, Sergio has been on the podium and Nico has finished no lower than sixth place. We’ve already scored 70% of the total points we scored in 2013 and that puts us in a fantastic position to potentially enjoy our best season to date."

Mallya says he is encouraged by Force India's form across circuits with different characteristics.

"It’s encouraging that we have performed well across a wide range of circuits, so I’m optimistic that we can maintain our competitive form in Barcelona," he said. China has never been an especially strong track for us, so to come away with ten points was a very good effort.

"We also expect our car to perform better in warmer conditions and there are some upcoming races that will play more to our strengths. At the same time we know that Formula One never stands still and Barcelona is always a pivotal moment in the development race, but I’m optimistic we can keep up our momentum."
