F1 » Hispania Racing born out of Campos' 'crazy story'


Campos Meta 1 is no more, and in its place has emerged Hispania Racing, as the under-pressure Spanish outfit re-invents itself and prepares to launch as it strives to reach the F1 starting grid at Sakhir in Bahrain

And even if they do overcome the hot sweats, mood swings and dryness 'down below', HRT are going to be on the grid with -
2 rookie drivers
A car that hasn't been shaken down
A car that nobody knows the performance of
and A car that may have a major design flaw or reliability issues.
Yep, that sounds safe.
With these lot, and Lotus and Virgin's snail-like machines, the debacle at USF1 and the sinister characters at Stefan whining childishly in the background, you wouldn't think this was supposed to be the most exciting seasons in years would you?

"Lotus and Virgin's snail like machines" - well, if F1 had the guts to implement a real set of cost cutting measures then maybe they would have more scope to get better performance.

"sinister characters at Stefan" - sinister? Why? Because they are *gasp* Serbian? Give it a rest, please

Everyone will remember HRT, any publicity is good publicity.

Oh dear - what initials - everyone will think F1 is for touring cars - Holden Racing Team! Certain minor points - Kolles arrived to an empty workshop - yet should be on the grid - in only a couple of weeks. Is all the razzmatazz just a smoke screen with the other teams. Reality is one man and a gofer in a lock up behind a high street? As an aside - re USF1 - wonder how much Peter and Ken paid themselves? Lots of pennies appear to have evaporated.
Is F1 written by an ex Coronation St writer?

Coronation street! No. More like minder with Arthur Daley at the helm with all this dodgy wheeling and dealing.

Just thought maybe Max could see he would have to stand down,so set all this nonsense in motion, and now can't stop laughing long enough to write his book.

Seriously though how can they let a car on the grid with out testing if something goes wrong and the driver or another driver is killed what would happen.

And what if it is slower than lotus or virgin by a second or even two surley the FIA need to know this car is safe or litterally up to speed. That goes for stefan or anybody else.

@Trickshot - sinister because no-one knows who they are, how they made their money or what their motivation is for a scheme that is surely doomed to failure. As pointed out many times before, they may have bought Toyota knock-offs this year, but what would happen in 2011? Is designing and building a car from scratch in Serbia any more feasible than designing and building a car in the US, an effort which they rather crassly were keen to mock on their website? And if they are well-funded, why, exactly, are they reputedly running Nakajima in one car?

Everyone seems very jumpy that criticising Stefan is racism towards Serbia. A bit ironic given that nation's track record in race relations.
