HRT team dentist boss Colin Kolles has confirmed that the contract that his team had with the Italian chassis builder Dallara has been terminated.

However, Kolles has attempted to dilute complaints reported in the press about the performance of the team’s Dallara-designed F110 chassis.

The team’s technical consultant Geoff Willis was among the first to criticise the quality of the team’s car, and earlier this week, the team’s Business Affairs Manager Manfredi Ravetto likened Dallara’s contribution to the project as a “total mess”.

The Spanish team is now expected to go it alone in developing and improving the back-of-the-grid car, but this may prove difficult if Dallara aren’t forthcoming with the chassis blueprints.

Speaking with Auto Motor und Sport, Kolles said: “It was clear from the outset that the contract with Dallara is completed. It ended on the date on which we ran our cars.”
