The Force India VJM09 is a Formula One racing car designed by Force India to compete in the 2016 Formula One season. The car is being driven by Nico Hülkenberg and Sergio Pérez, and uses the Mercedes PU106C Hybrid power unit.

The VJM09 scored a notable podium at the Monaco Grand Prix where Pérez finished third and Hülkenberg sixth. It was the first time the team had scored a podium at Monaco in any guise (i.e. Jordan, Midland, Spyker or Force India). Pérez finished third again two races later in Baku at the European Grand Prix.
