Q&A - Colin Kolles, Hispania

Colin Kolles looks back at the 2010 F1 season
Q:
How would you describe Hispania Racing's first year in Formula 1?

Colin Kolles:
It was a difficult year but we were the most reliable new team. I think the only reason why we did not finish tenth is that teams like Lotus and Virgin had more experienced drivers during the whole season. I think that in testing we showed quite a good performance in relation to the other new teams.

Q:
Hispania Racing showed a good improvement. How can this help for 2011 and how will the experience help next year? 


Colin Kolles:
We improved over the season. Reliability was the first objective. We learnt a lot and hope that from now on we can concentrate more on improving the performance.



Q:
What is the actual situation of the team and what can you say about the car for the 2011 season? What is being done over the winter?

Colin Kolles:
We are working to have a better package than last year. From my point of view, the season was not as good as we would have liked it to be in terms of performance and this has to improve. Obviously this depends on a lot of factors but we are working to achieve our goals.

Q:
What do you think about Williams F1 and Cosworth being your suppliers next year?


Colin Kolles:
It cannot be wrong to have a package which proved to be on a regular basis in Q3 in qualifying.

Q:
What are your objectives for the new season?


Colin Kolles:
To stabilise the team and to improve its performance.
