Oct.14 (GMM) Bob Fernley has played down his boss Vijay Mallya's latest problems.

Already grappling with his ailing airline Kingfisher, Force India chief Mallya now faces arrest in his native India, two weeks ahead of the team's all-important home race in the country.

The non-bailable arrest warrant was issued by a Hyderabad court last week over bounced cheques relating to the cash-strapped and grounded Kingfisher.

But deputy team boss Fernley has played down his boss's problems.

"It will be resolved and I expect Vijay to be in India," he is quoted by the south Asian nwes agency ANI.

"It's not a big amount of money so he would have no idea a cheque would have been issued. For me, there are no issues with the team.

"It is just one thing that has gone wrong and I have to deal with it," he added.
