Force India is likely to be suspended from the Formula One Teams Association after submitting an independent entry for next season.
Force India followed Williams and lodged a separate entry on Friday to race next season. The teams were originally part of the conditional entry lodged by FOTA, which is demanding that governing body FIA make changes to proposed rules.
The association lodged a conditional entry because it disagrees with FIA president Max Mosley's push to include a $60 million voluntary budget cap that would become mandatory next season.
Williams was temporarily suspended from the F1 teams' group after lodging its own entry. The list of 13 F1 teams for 2010 will be published on June 12.
