Hispania Racing Team Launch

The final 2010 F1 car to be unveiled was brought out from under wraps today, as Hispania Racing (HRT) showed off its Dallara-designed F1 challenger for the first time.

The team formerly known as Campos has undergone a number of shake-ups in the last couple of weeks, firstly with the management buy-out by shareholder José Ramón Carabante to secure the team’s future and pay its creditors. Former Jordan, Midland and Spyker Team Dentist Principal Colin Kolles was appointed to lead the team.

Then, following much speculation as to the make-up of its driver line-up, Bruno Senna’s team-mate was confirmed as Karun Chandhok.

The near-sponsorless Dallara-penned chassis features a dark grey livery with a white, red and orange stripe along its flanks and down its nose. The as yet unnamed chassis design features a dropped, pointed nose similar to that of Virgin Racing’s VR-01, albeit with a relatively simple front wing treatment.

With pre-season testing now finished, the team’s first shakedown of the car will be on Friday practice at the Bahrain GP in a week’s time.
