Force India receive police visit.

The Force India F1 team has confirmed that it received a visit from police and legal personnel during the opening day of the German Grand Prix at the Nurburgring - but insists that the matter is minor.

The Silverstone-based team attracted attention both on and off track on Friday [10 July] for, while Giancarlo Fisichella and Adrian Sutil were posting top six times in the two 90-minute free practice sessions, behind the scenes it was being visited by legal representatives - accompanied by uniformed personnel - demanding that the team's motorhome be vacated as it was to be seized, along with other team property.

"This dispute with the contractor has been on-going since last season, and pertains to the quality of construction of the motorhome and its functionality," a team statement issued overnight confirmed, "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."
