Caterham has refuted "unfounded and unsubstantiated rumours" about the team's ability to race in the Japanese Grand Prix.

On Wednesday a bailiffs website - called The Sheriffs Office - posted an article on its website stating that it had seized and removed a number of goods from an F1 team, listing a number of Caterham items set for sale. The items included a 2013 test car, a simulator and what the bailiffs claimed to be F1 parts due for the Japanese Grand Prix.

While Caterham confirms that bailiffs seized items, it says the dispute is not with the team itself and says it will not impact on its ability to race at Suzuka.
