Force India to continue Spyker’s arbitration case

Despite being sold by Colin Kolles to Vijay Mallya and being rebranded from Spyker to Force India, the team are still pressing ahead with the customer car arbitration case against rival F1 teams Super Aguri and Toro Rosso.

Almost a year ago, Kolles revealed he would be pursuing the two team in arbitration because he believed that customer cars were illegal as they were mainly designed and built by their parent companies. It is believed that Force India boss Vijay Mallya is intending to pursue the action started by Kolles under the Force India name.

The arbitration case is currently being presented to the Swiss based Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne.

A source at UB Group, one of Mallya s companies, said “They are intent on pursuing the arbitration case. We are of the opinion that Aguri and Toro Rosso cannot be part of F1 as per the provisions in the Concorde Agreement.

“Given a choice, we want them out for sure. The lesser the competition, the better.”
