Force India boss Vijay Mallya says his team is meeting its goals for the 2010 season, having become regular point scorers.
The Silverstone-based squad has scored 43 points in the first eight races of the year, also having finished in the top ten with at least one car in the last five events.
Mallya has been delighted with the performance of his team and is eyeing a podium finish at tracks like Spa or Monza to top it off.
"I've said before that the objective of 2010 was to regularly score points, and I think we're meeting that objective," said Mallya.
"Spa and Monza are tracks that will suit the car better, and if we can get a podium, that would be the icing on the cake.
"But if not, at least we're demonstrating that we're scoring points. We're up to 43 now, and this team hasn't done as well in a long while.
Mallya also admitted this weekend's British Grand Prix will be a special event for the team.
"It's a very big weekend, and obviously Silverstone is where we really want to perform well. It's the home race for us now and there's a lot of involvement from the guys in the factory, and the whole team enjoys the race weekend.
"We've got a little update coming, over and above what we had in Valencia, and hopefully we can bring both cars home well into the points. Clearly this car is better than anything we've had at Silverstone in many years."
