Not only did BAR-Honda sort its driver line-up for 2004 in the run-up to the Japanese Grand prix, it has also put to rest any legal proceedings arising from a dispute over a sponsorship issue arising from its early days.

Earlier this year, PPGI brought a claim against BAR regarding commission based on a sponsorship arrangement made in 1998 with former team sponsor Teleglobe. BAR, in turn, issued a countersuit for damages, after police raided the team's encampment at Magny-Cours and impounded its cars.

Although the issue appeared to run and run, with PPGI determined to claim payment and BAR to seek redress for what it claimed was a tarnished reputation, mediation has since prevailed, with BAR reporting that both parties have withdrawn their legal claims and no further action will be taken.
