Clos to get second practice outing at Silverstone

Dani Clos to get another run in the HRT

Dani Clos will run for HRT during opening practice for the F1 2012 British Grand Prix next weekend, it has been announced.

The Spaniard, who made first appearance on a race weekend with the squad in Friday practice at the Spanish Grand Prix back in May, will replace Narain Karthikeyan.

“I'm very happy to step into the F112 once again in Silverstone, a place where I've got good memories since I've made the podium every time I've been in GP2. After Barcelona I've really been looking forward to this new opportunity,” Clos said.

“The work we're carrying out with the team is positive and I think that I can make a good contribution. I will be able to run in better conditions than in Barcelona because the car was new back then and I had to carry out various aero tests.

“Now I've got a new opportunity, not to prove anything but to work with the team and evolve as much as we can.”

Team principal Luis Perez-Sala is looking forward to seeing how the 23-year-old gets on: “I'm happy that Dani will have a new opportunity to sit behind the wheel of the car for the first free practice session,” he added.

“This time he'll be able to get more out of the session because in Barcelona there were many things to test and he had to focus on them, but now he'll be able to get the most out of the experience.

“Besides, it will be the second time he drives the F112 this season so he won't be stepping into the unknown and won't need a period to adapt.”
