Force India lodges Unconditional Entry

Force India has become the second team to break away from the hardline stance of the Formula One Teams' Association (FOTA) and lodge an unconditional entry for next year's championship.

A team statement said:
"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."
