The news, announced in a media statement issued by the Spanish team on Thursday, follows Wednesday's news that Colin Kolles has stepped down.

52-year-old Spaniard Sala, who contested 32 Grand Prix weekends with Minardi at the end of the 80s, was appointed as an official advisor by HRT's new owners Thesan Capital earlier this year.

"It is the best decision we could make," said chief executive Saul Ruiz de Marcos, who revealed that Manfredi Ravetto, formerly the team's director of business affairs, is also leaving the team.
