Kolles: It’s been a tough winter

The Hispania team who launched their 2011 car on Friday morning at the penultimate day of winter testing in Barcelona, have been working against the clock to get their 2011 car ready for the start of the new season, after a deal between the team and Toyota to work on the Spanish team’s 2011 car fell through. “It’s been a tough winter, but we’ve manage to have a new car in a very short time.” said HRT team principal, Colin Kolles. “The new car is definitely better than last year’s one and I hope that we will make further progress this year.” Kolles added “We will have a better package aerodynamically and mechanically than in 2010.” HRT made their debut in Formula 1 last season, as the first ever Spanish team to enter the sport. It was a difficult first year for the team, as financial and technical issues continued to hit them throughout the year. Although, with that season behind them, the team are ready to move forward and develop. “I’m very proud of the hard work done by the team.” Said team president, José Ramón Carabante “This car is born out of the work done by a large number of people who form this team, Hispania Racing, the first ever Spanish team in Formula 1 history. The design is innovative and futuristic, it catches your eye, but we mustn’t forget that it is also a step forwards in technical terms.” “I’m sure that the F111 will bring much joy to those who believe and always have believed in the growth of this team. I can’t wait for the season to begin, the second in our short yet intense history in Formula 1.”
