HRT to sue Chandhok for contract breach
(GMM)  Karun Chandhok is facing legal action by his former F1 employer HRT, according to reports in the Indian press.

The Sun this week quoted team boss Colin Kolles as saying the 26-year-old Indian was dropped mid-season in 2010 "because he did not fulfill his contractual obligations".

A report in the Hyderabad based Deccan Chronicle newspaper said the Spanish team is set to take legal action for breach of contract.

"When he signed an agreement with us for the 2010 season, Karun made a lot of promises on paper.  But he failed to fulfill his obligations," Kolles said.

"We waited for some time, but we didn't have any other choice than to suspend him at the German GP," he added.

"However, we did everything diplomatically.  We didn't make it public.  Since then, Karun was never in the team's radar," said Kolles.

Sources told the newspaper that Chandhok's sponsors paid only EUR 2 million out of a promised 8m, and Kolles claimed the missing money affected HRT's progress.

"We were planning to do certain upgrades on the car, but everything got disturbed," he said.
