Katherine Legge is disputing former teammate Sebastien Bourdais' version of her termination from Dragon Racing.

Legge told The Associated Press on Saturday she has not been in a race car since the IndyCar season finale at Fontana in September. Bourdais contended she performed poorly at a December test at the same track.

Bourdais told ESPN.com on Friday that Legge was "just weak" in the December test, and her showing played a part in Dragon and sponsor TrueCar's decision to part ways with the English driver. Dragon hired 22-year-old Sebastian Saavedra to pilot the No. 6 this season.

Legge maintains she has a year remaining on her contract and brought the TrueCar sponsorship to the team.

She's said she will take legal action to resolve the matter.
