HRT need a lot of things, perhaps the most important being more cash. This sponsorship deal with Cristalbox is only for one year, and the deal has been announced after Cristalbox fitted out HRT's new headquarters. Who knows,if this sponsorship was all part of a sweetener to get the building contract.I guess we'll know next year if the sponsorship is renewed.

I hope HRT can keep Cristalbox, and add many more sponsors. They need the monetary hormonal replacement, the effects of which should improve their visible management practices.

Why the so called experts insist in trying to force their opinion based solely on prejudice and unfunded assumptions? Beat me! Particularly Since there are rivers of text already written on the internet based on facts...
For your information and if all you detractors out there care to do a minimum of internet research, instead of insinuating corruption for the part of HERT F1 Team and or their sponsors .... you will find out the sponsor in question is the largest supplier and Fitters of AUTO windscreens, and automobile related products ( Like Autglass in the UK) they do not deal with Building class, also if you care to find out , the new headquarter HRTF1 in Madrid “ la Caja Magica” ( The Magic box ) is one of the most modern and prestigious buildings in Madrid , its also house the Davis cup Organisation Head quarters and has the Royal seal of approval....in Spain. HRT F1 Team took a leasing contract for over 100,000 Sqft on this building for several Years it

Well jefermano buildings don't influence the grid
and entice a team to attend a much needed test session.
As much as I would like to see HRT do well the hard facts are they in a mess and need to priortise.
All well and good to have flash headquarters and the team in the same postcode but will it improve performance.
What were the new sponsors thinking when the team failed to appear at Mugello.
If I had a $ invested in the team I know what my thoughts would be.
"Smoke and Mirrors"
Besides that factor Spain is on a financial downslide and HRT are using that hardship to their advantage through exploitation.

I am sorry to say you also missed the point, you focus on the negatives and r based your comments on your assumptions because you are too lazy to find out the facts, preferring the easy option by jumping on the bandwagon, I'll bet you still believe, the current HRT F1 team is the same as last year's ad the year before, for your info this team was bough by Thesan capital (a major investment firm Like Gennii Capital, owners of Lotus- ex Renault F1 team) at end of November, the current team is about 98 % new people , they started from zero at end of November, so any reference to the old Hispania racing Team is incorrect and unjustified, however they had to keep the HRT F1Team name because of the FOM and FIA Contractual agreements.

A decent team would be able to attract money from foreign market because of exposure to international customers. I don't think Spanish windscreen fitter will come to Germany or China to replace glass.

Thesan assumed a equity partnership within HRT in June 2011.(Not November)

Their is no comparison between Genni and Thesan.

Thesan are bank rolling Spain and are subject to the financial spirale of the country.

They are the facts. I am assuming nothing.

As I said the best of luck to HRT. I wish them well
