Court sources said Mr Justice Arnold awarded Mike Gascoyne, Caterham's chief technical officer, an interim payment of costs of 400,000 Pounds and 1Malaysia Racing Team of 250,000 Pounds. 1Malaysia Racing Team competed as Lotus Racing when they made their debut in 2010, becoming Team Lotus in 2011 and Caterham this season.
