Force India officials on Friday would not confirm reports that the team has broken ranks and signed up to contest the 2010 world championship.

Multiple sources claim the Silverstone based team, despite lodging a conditional entry with the other eight FOTA teams a week ago, have now indicated to the FIA that they are happy to accept the budget cap conditions for 2010.

But an unnamed representative close to the team on Friday said no additional paperwork has been submitted to the FIA, while commercial director Ian Phillips told BBC Five Live that "we submitted a joint entry last Friday, and there's nothing more to say".
