Force India has confirmed lodging an unconditional entry for 2010 Formula One championship. Force India joined Williams and jumped the FOTA ship. Here is the statement from the team:
“While the Force India team is broadly in agreement with the FOTA objectives, commercial obligations have demanded that Force India review its conditional entry jointly submitted by FOTA on deadline day.
“This has been done today with full transparency between all parties. The details of the team’s position will be discussed between Dr. Vijay Mallya and FOTA vice-chairman John Howett tomorrow. No further comment will be made until those discussions have taken place.”
Force India is now facing similar fate as Williams – suspension of their FOTA membership. Is this it or will more FOTA members follow the example of Williams and Force India ?
