A law firm has commenced legal action against Formula One team HRT.

According to Sport Business, the major international firm DLA Piper is pursuing the struggling Spanish outfit for unpaid legal fees dating back more than a year.

"Despite frequent reminders, Hispania Racing have failed to pay," said the firm's John Everett.

"They have given us no reason for non-payment," he added. "We are forced to the conclusion that they are unable to pay and hence are commencing such proceedings."

HRT boss Colin Kolles said a few days ago that HRT has managed to secure some more sponsors.

"The situation is improving," he confirmed. "In F1 you need a lot of support and this is what we are trying to achieve."
