HRT to miss mid-season tests


After an in-depth evaluation of its current situation, HRT made a public announcement that it will be absent from the tests in Mugello. Although the Spanish team has planned upgrades for the F112, but unfortunately for the team it seems unlikely that they will be able to complete the intended upgrades before the test date. The Madrid based team wants to focus its energies in moving to its new headquarters.

“The team and the material have just got back from Bahrain after leaving for Australia in early March. And they return, for the first time, to the team’s new headquarters at the Caja Magica in Madrid. This move is very important for us and by not going to Mugello we can work thoroughly on the car to prepare for the Spanish Grand Prix. We won’t have the new upgrade package until then so we’ve preferred to focus on what can contribute more to us, which is teamwork at the headquarters. And there is a lot to do,” said Team Principal Luis Perez-Sala.

HRT also couldn’t participate in the pre-season tests having failed several crash tests. HRT have not really displayed a great performance so far in the season having not qualified in the Australian Grand Prix, and Narain Karthikeyan and Pedro de la Rosa finishing last in all the races except the Bahrain Grand Prix.
