Hispania Racing has denied reports that it is fighting to make it to the end of the current F1 season.

The team only made it onto the grid after an eleventh-hour deal saw Jose Ramon Carabante secure control from Adrian Campos, with Karun Chandhok and Bruno Senna forced to start the campaign without any pre-season testing.

Both drivers have struggled for pace with the Dallara-designed car and have been consigned to the back of the grid, with F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone telling the Daily Telegraph that the team was facing problems to make it through the season [See separate story HERE].

However, Carabante has now denied those reports and said that the Spanish team is already looking to 2011, when it is expected that the team will take on the challenge of designing its own car due to the current issues with Dallara over the performance of the 2010 machine.

"We have no financial problems and we are already thinking about 2011," Carabante was quoted by the Dario AS 'paper. "For sure it (the report) is not about us. Maybe he is talking about other teams that do not have sponsors."
