Q&A – Colin Kolles, HRT

Our team has made improvements during the course of this season and we want to continue to fight hard to reduce the gap to the midfield.

Q:
What has changed with the team's new owners?

Colin Kolles:
HRT F1 has new owners which have given us increased confidence in our F1 programme.

Q:
Liuzzi is to race a Ford Falcon at the Gold Coast 600 V8 Supercar event in October 2011, do you have any hesitation having one of your drivers compete in another series?

Colin Kolles:
Well, to start with, we will all be in the Asian time zone and it is best to adapt fully to the time zone for the five out of the six last grands prix, starting with Singapore, then Japan, Korea and India and the penultimate Abu Dhabi leg before the grand finale in Brazil. All professional races are a good challenge for well-trained drivers. In the end, mentally speaking for a driver, a race remains a race and it requires a very sharp focus exercise. Racing and getting kilometres under your belt are always a benefit.
