HRT’s interim technical director, Geoff Willis, has revealed he is “disappointed” with the team’s Dallara-built F110 car.
Despite Dallara being a well-respected constructor in other motorsports categories, such as F3 and IndyCar, Willis has criticised the F110 design as “not comply[ing] with modern F1 standards.”
Another battle Willis faces is that Dallara, as the chassis’ designers, hold the blueprints for the F110 design and data, meaning the ability to make meaningful updates to the car is therefore limited.
"I have to consider whether it’s interesting for me to stay with a team whose car is going to drive around at the back of the field," he admitted.
Willis said he would decide his future with the team before the forthcoming Chinese GP.
One thinks that the team’s
dentist boss, Colin Kolles, might make that decision for Willis!
