Bruno Senna sure Hispania Racing will be faster than rivals



Bruno Senna is confident the new HRT F1 car will be faster than fellow newcomers Lotus and Virgin. On Thursday HRT definite Senna and Karun as its drivers and unveiled its Dallara-built frame. The car has not completed any pre-season testing, but by comparing Lotus’ and Virgin’s testing times to that of the Dallara GP2 car, Senna is sure the HRT can match its rivals for pace. Lotus F1 and Virgin racing be in Barcelona just a good second quicker than the GP2 cars, of which Dallara has indeed all the data, he wrote in his column for Motorsport Magazine. And we should be faster according to their calculations right away, at slightest two seconds faster than the GP2 cars.

But, Senna is fined aware that dependability will be a major factor in the early races. Of course, much will also depend on whether the car is steady from the start to some extent, he said. I hope that, with the practice of the Dallara men and with a little luck, a few of the troubles that the other newcomers encountered, particularly in the hydraulic system, will not problem us.

Hispania Racing Team will run for the first time during Friday practice for the Bahrain GP on March 12.
