Other vital things that HRT will race with 2012 F1 with new team owners and new team Principal Luis Perez-Sala.
BBC quoted a team spokeswoman as acknowledging to a ‘critical delay’ but that they expected the car to be ready on time.
“Rumours that we will take part in the initial grands prix with the 2011 car are not true,” said the spokeswoman. “The target is to be at the second test with the new car.”
“Luis Perez-Sala is fully focused at the moment on the car and the new structure, and he prefers not to give any statements or interviews to the press for now until everything is in place. The philosophy of the new owners has always been first work and then talk. And try to be as open and honest as possible.”
Hispania Racing Team already selected Pedro de la Rosa as one of the teams’ driver for next season, and still find out next driver for his team-mate.
“There’s been, and still is, a lot to work on but, even if we may struggle in the beginning, the structure that is being built now is a lot more solid, reliable and committed. Hopefully, we’ll be able to prove all that soon and change the team’s perception, which is no longer real. It won’t be a bed of roses but we’ll manage to do it.”
