The Force India VJM07 was a car designed by Force India for the 2014 Formula One season. Its drivers were Nico Hülkenberg, who came back following one year with Sauber, and Sergio Pérez, who was a new driver of Force India after racing for McLaren in 2013.[2][3] As with Mercedes, Williams and McLaren, the car's 1.6 litre V6 engine was the Mercedes PU106A Hybrid.[4][1]

The VJM07 was launched at Circuito de Jerez on 28 January 2014. It was also used in the 2015 Barcelona Test 1, as the VJM08 was not ready.[5]

After five years without a podium finish, Pérez achieved the team's first and only podium finish of the season, finishing third at the Bahrain Grand Prix. It was Force India's first podium since the 2009 Belgian Grand Prix.
