HRT has no immediate plans to replace team principal Colin Kolles, according to new team advisor Luis Perez-Sala.

Sala, a former Minardi driver, was appointed by the former Hispania team's new owners Thesan Capital amid rumours Kolles might be asked to step aside.

Not so, Sala told the Spanish website CarAndDriverTheF1.com at Spa-Francorchamps last weekend.

"There are no thoughts about changing the head of HRT; it is he who brings together the entire workforce. It would make no sense now or in 2012," he said.

Sala, who contested 30 grands prix in the late eighties, also said HRT is sticking with Cosworth power and its technical tie-up with Williams.

"We have a contract with Cosworth for next year and we also have an agreement with Williams," he revealed. "We will stay with these components because they are not the problem of the car."
