Court action threatens Kolles' F1 plans

Kolles is reportedly having trouble paying a former collaborator.

Feb. 17 (GMM) A court action could endanger Colin Kolles' chances of returning to Formula One.

The former HRT and Force India boss had been linked with a return to the sport with his own team, after the FIA recently invited interested parties to apply for the vacant pitlane spot.

But the German-language Spox reports that Kolles' bid might be derailed by a legal dispute between his racing outfit, Kodewa, and former designer Stéphane Chosse.

Chosse, who worked on Kolles' sportscar project, the Lotus T128 LM P2, and in F1 with HRT, is pursuing the Romanian-born German for 2 million euros in unpaid fees, with the dispute set to be heard in Nuremberg on Friday.

Chosse's lawyer Horst Becker confirmed the action.
