The Hispania Racing Team has shown off the first CGI renderings of its 2011 challenger and the brand new colour scheme it will run in the upcoming season.

HRT F111 side drama The new car – dubbed the F111 – looks similar to its Dallara-designed predecessor from 2010, but the Spanish outfit is crediting the new car’s design to Geoff Willis and Paul White.

“We are very pleased to introduce the first spec of the F111,” said team owner José Ramón Carabante.

“This is only a first step as we are planning several updates during the season.”

“We have made a big improvement for our second season and what you see confirms our commitment to F1,” added team principal Colin Kolles.

The livery is designed by Hollywood graphic designer Daniel Simon – famous for his work on the TRON: Legacy film – and is apparently a first iteration.

With the team’s sole confirmed sponsor being the Indian-based TATA conglomerate, we’re certainly fans of the ‘This could be you’ logo splashes to encourage prospective sponsors to come on board.
