Force India will launch its 2013 car at Silverstone on February 1 next year.

The team is the first to announce a launch date for its 2013 contender and has opted to unveil the car on the Friday ahead of the first day of pre-season testing at Jerez on February 5. Force India is based just outside Silverstone and will launch its car at the British circuit before heading to Spain.

"So we've pencilled in Friday 1st of February for the presentation of our 2013 car in the UK," the team announced on Twitter. "That's the week before testing begins in Spain."

The team has yet to confirm its driver line-up for 2013, although Paul di Resta's position is understood to be secure. Di Resta completed a filming day at the launch of this year's VJM05 ahead of its first official test at Jerez.
