HRT Unveils F112 Challenger In Spain

BARCELONA, Spain- Being the last team to launch their 2012 formula one challenger, Team HRT unveiled their entry for this year’s season Monday afternoon at the Circuit de Catalunya.

Narain Kartikeyan, who is in his second year with the now registered Spanish squad, took controls of the new F112 around four o’clock in the team’s first rollout. But the car like that of Marrussia’s, has failed crash tests and has not made changes before the opening pre-season tests in February. But considering all these setbacks, the car managed to make it out onto the track.

Joining Karthikeyan this season will be veteran Spaniard Pedro De La Rosa, who will give the team plenty of advice in many years of driving and testing experience.

But the drive for Karthikeyan himself was very short lived, as under the regulations, the car could not go any farther than 60 miles of testing, due to the fact that the test itself was only done on Pirelli promotional tires for the event.
