London's High Court is set to hear a case over the disputed 2018 sale of Force India to Lawrence Stroll.
Two years ago, when Force India was sold by Vijay Mallya, Uralkali - owned by Russian billionaire Dmitry Mazepin - claims it made an even higher bid for the team but the administrators "did not reply to phone calls and emails".
The deal with billionaire Stroll went through, his son Lance was installed as a driver, and Racing Point will become Aston Martin next year.
But Uralkali, owned by Mazepin, whose son Nikita is tipped to race for Haas next year, took the Force India dispute to court, where the case has started being heard by the London High Court this week.
Uralkali alleges that Toto Wolff also influenced the Force India administrators by indicating that Mercedes would only guarantee a supply of engines for the Silverstone based team if the Stroll bid succeeded.
Wolff went on to buy shares in Aston Martin and admits he encouraged Sebastian Vettel to join the team for 2021.
