London:

Force India must pay legal costs of $1 million to rival Formula One team Caterham after a dispute about intellectual property.

The High Court in London ruled that Force India has to pay the legal costs within 14 days.

Force India had been told in March to pay a similar amount to former wind tunnel partner Aerolab as part of the same case, taking the total owed by the British team to nearly $2.2 million.

Force India had brought claims of a conspiracy to misuse the team's confidential information against Aerolab and Mike Gascoyne, chief technical officer of Caterham.

Force India said its appeal was postponed relating to damages that Aerolab was ordered to pay for passing on some of Force India's aerodynamic designs to Caterham - then known as Lotus.
