Caterham statement denies Leafield bailiffs rumours

Caterham issue a statement dismissing reports that the company base has been seized by bailiffs.

Caterham have rubbished rumours that the team's Leafield base has been seized by bailiffs over non-payment to a supplier.

Unconfirmed reports had suggested that both police and bailiffs had turned up at the site and have asked staff to leave the premises.

However, a statement from the team has indicated that any stories regarding the company were untrue, and the F1 backmarker has insisted that it is business as usual in the build-up to this weekend's Japanese Grand Prix.

The statement read: "There have been unfounded and unsubstantiated rumours concerning actions against 1MRT, the entrant and owner of CaterhamF1.

"An action was threatened yesterday against a supplier company to 1MRT. This company is not owned by 1MRT and it has no influence over the entry of CaterhamF1 or the entrant.

"Also contrary to uncontrolled rumours, all operations are currently in place at Leafield and the race team is doing its preparation in Japan."

Caterham have yet to score a point in the constructors' championship since the team began racing under the Team Lotus brand in 2009.
