A dispute involving Force India has not yet been resolved, after "uniformed personnel" were dispatched to the Nurburgring on Friday.

Staff of the Silverstone based team had to vacate their paddock motor home prior to morning practice, when the officers acting on behalf of a local court sought to seize the structure.

Behind the saga is a disgruntled contractor that reportedly has not been fully paid for building the motor home for Force India. In a statement, the team flagged a dispute over "the quality" of the structure "and its functionality".

It was believed team chief Vijay Mallya had settled the matter with the contractor on Friday, but Force India clarified that it "will fiercely contest the wrongful claims ... if no amicable settlement is achieved".
