According to The Telegraph, Anthony Hamilton, father of the 2008 world champion Lewis Hamilton and former manager of Paul Di Resta, has filed a lawsuit against the Scottish Force India driver for wrongful termination.
The dispute between Hamilton and Di Resta began when the latter fired the former, after claims that he was misled over a sponsorship agreement with an energy drink company called Go Fast. The deal, allegedly worth €5.5m, or £4.3m, was brought forward from Di Resta to Hamilton, who informed the Force India driver that buying the rights from the team would cost €2m. However, Di Resta then discovered that it would cost only €1m, half of the amount Hamilton said it would be, to buy the sponsorship deal from Force India, and this lead to the termination of contract.
According to several observers, the two parties would most likely reach an out of court settlement to end the dispute.
