Hispania to miss Jerez test

Hispania elects to miss Jerez test to aid Pirelli in filming work
Hispania Racing has revealed that it will skip this week's F1 test session at Jerez in order to join Pirelli for a filming session at Monza.

The team will take part in filming for the new tyre supplier for three days from Monday onwards before heading to Barcelona to rejoin the remaining teams for the third group test of the year.

The team will continue to run the 2010-spec F110 with the new F111 set to appear no earlier than the Bahrain test prior to the season opener at the same venue.

"We are happy to support Pirelli in Monza," team principal Colin Kolles said.

Alan, they probably did it to get more tyre data before finalising their 2011 chassis. Which decision was the right one will show I suppose. HRT are still in a peculiar situation though because unlike Virgin and "Lotus", who had to rush things last season but have had more time to work on their chasses this year, HRT have again ended up having to rush things and are also making their first own chassis.

Richard, so why did so many teams turn up at the last session with last year's car? You can get a lot of valuable data about the tyres by running them on a platform where you already have good metrics. But that's not the point. If Mclaren or Ferrari was doing this, people would find reasons to call it "cheating".
