The Force India F1 team looks set to change its name to Force One Grand Prix after the new name, along with several similar iterations, was registered with Companies House in the UK.

The team based across the road from the Silverstone race circuit has been known as Force India ever since Indian businessman Vijay Mallya took control ten years ago.

A change of name is thought to be in the pipeline for commercial reasons after the team has had little luck attracting sponsor in India over the past decade.

Six businesses with various versions of the Force One name -- Force One Grand Prix, Force One Racing, Force One Team, Force One Technology, Force One Hospitality and Force One Brand -- were registered between May 31 and June 6, with Force India board member Thiruvannamalai Lakshmi Kanthan named as the only official.
