HRT to miss Mugello test

User Rating: / 0

After some careful assessment, HRT have announced they will not be attending next week’s Formula One test in Mugello, Italy. With planned upgrades to the Spanish team’s car not due for completion until after the session, they will instead concentrate on moving to their new headquarters.

"The start to the season was a little bit rushed for us and, since the cars were set up for the first time, we have been working on them at the Grands Prix,” explained team principal Luis Perez-Sala. “The team and the material have just got back from Bahrain after leaving for Australia in early March. And they return, for the first time, to the team’s new headquarters at the Caja Magica in Madrid.

“This move is very important for us and by not going to Mugello we can work thoroughly on the car to prepare for the Spanish Grand Prix. We won’t have the new upgrade package until then so we’ve preferred to focus on what can contribute more to us, which is teamwork at the headquarters. And there is a lot to do.”

HRT, who did not attend any of the three pre-season tests earlier this year, lie 12th in the 2012 constructor standings, with a best result of 20th place for Pedro de la Rosa in Bahrain. Following their withdrawal, the Mugello test on May 01-03 will now feature 11 teams.
