Force India stands firm in motorhome dispute
Force India is confident that its dispute with the supplier of its motorhome will be resolved in its favor, despite an attempt by the contractor to have the motorhome impounded by German police at the Nurburgring this morning.
The team said it would continue discussions with the contractor but would not be backing down.
"The Force India Formula 1 team today received a visit from legal representatives accompanied by uniformed personnel who demanded that the team's motorhome be vacated as they wished to seize the team's property," said a team statement. "This dispute with the contractor has been ongoing since last season and pertains to the quality of construction of the motorhome and its functionality.
"The contractor decided to take matters into their own hands without due notice and process and approached a local German court, who were presented with highly disputable facts.
"Force India will resolve matters during the weekend with the contractor but will fiercely contest the wrongful claims made by them before the local German Court if no amicable settlement is achieved."
