The car

For this 2011 season, Hispania Racing will launch the F111. The new car has been developed by our own group of engineers and designers under the technical leadership of Geoff Willis and Chief Designer Paul White. World renowned vehicle concept designer and visionary illustrator, Daniel Simon, is responsible for the graphic design of the F111. Daniel is considered one of the most imaginative and adventurous designers in both Hollywood and the motor industry. Although he and his label, Cosmic Motors, live mostly in the future, he also has a strong passion for motor racing’s bold iconic liveries from the past, and has drawn inspiration from them in creating Hispania Racing´s new livery. That distinct “Cosmic Motors” look brings together racing spirit and commercial reality, blending the dual requirements in a seamless, but attractive manner, which reflects the motivated vibe of the Hispania Racing team as itenters its second Formula 1 season.

Hispania Racing’s first Formula One season produced many challenges which tested the team’s determination and imagination, qualities that resonated with Daniel Simon, “Being offered a blank canvas by Hispania Racing and with it the opportunity to bring to life elements of Cosmic Motors, was something I just couldn’t pass up. It’s been an exciting journey as Hispania Racing evolves and grows. I missed fearless visual statements and large beautiful numbers on today´s racing cars. Playing with the restrictions of what you can do to a complex F1 body is fun. There are many don´ts, but I found a way to lay courageous racing essence on the car.”

Colin Kolles, Team Principal, outlines the improvement of the new car: “The F111 represents a significant step forward for Hispania Racing. We have made a big improvement for our second season in Formula 1 and what you see in our new car confirms Hispania Racing´s commitment to F1.”

 

Geoff Willis, Technical Director: “Starting the programme to develop the F111 has been an enormous challenge. The group of engineers working from many separate locations had to produce the 2011 HRT chassis to meet the new regulations, package the Williams LG14 transmission, design all new rear suspension to suit and develop a complete aero package. Given the tight time frame, I am very impressed with the result and the enormous efforts everyone has put in to achieve the objective. However we have to be realistic in our expectations of performance; this is very much a baseline car which the teammust develop in 2011.“
