Hispania to switch 'very soon' to F1 2012 car

17 June 2011


Hispania Racing will begin focusing on next year's car 'very soon', team boss, Colin Kolles has said.

The little Spanish-squad achieved its best result in its short history last weekend in Canada, with Vitantonio Liuzzi bringing his F111 home in 13th at Montreal's Circuit Gilles Villeneuve [see separate story - click here].

That result was a major boost for HRT and for now moves it ahead of Virgin in the constructors'.

However while plans are afoot to start focusing on 2012, Kolles has reiterated that HRT are still hoping to beat Team Lotus and get tenth place in the constructors' – an extremely ambitious target to say the least, given the comparative pace of the F111 versus the T128.

“We will switch very soon to the 2012 car,” Kolles said. “As predicted [after qualifying in Canada], it was a crazy race with a positive ending for us.

“It was the team's best result - and is just the result of people within the team working very hard. We will continue to work hard and hope to improve and achieve better results. There are still a lot of races left this season.

“We want to achieve our target of being 10th in the constructor's championship,” Kolles concluded.
