Mike Gascoyne sues Force India

Mike Gascoyne sues Force India

Gascoyne sacked at the end of the 2008 season
Mike Gascoyne has commenced legal action against Force India following the former Chief Technical Officer's dismissal late last year.

Autosport reported that Gascoyne, 45, is unhappy that his contract was terminated more than a year before it was due to expire. He is seeking more than €2m in damages, including mainly lost 2009 wages.

Gascoyne's previous tenure with Toyota in 2006 was also prematurely ended, but in that case the parties parted as the result of a mutual agreement.

When he subsequently joined Force India at the end of 2007, he said: "I have said to (team owner) Vijay (Mallya): if at the end of next year we are still in last place, then I should already have been dismissed. And rightly so."

I guess he can't complain too much about since Force India was last in 2008! They did improve a little bit but not enough. The fact that Super Aguri quit early in the season did not help them at all!
