Team principal Colin Kolles spoke of “The F111 represents a significant step forward for Hispania Racing. We have made a big improvement for starting our second season in Formula 1 and what you see in our new car confirms Hispania Racing’s commitment to F1.”
The team will not be present at this week’s Jerez test, preferring to undertake promotional work at Monza for Pirelli, with the mandatory FIA crash tests due to take place in the next few days. The team plan to be on track at the final test of the preseason in Bahrain.
