The Hispania Racing F1 team has unveiled the first pictures of its 2011 F1 car, the HRT F111.

The F111 has been developed by HRT’s own group of engineers and designers under the technical leadership of Geoff Willis and Chief Designer Paul White.

“We feel really proud of the car our drivers will run this forthcoming season,” said Hispania Racing President Jose Ramon Carabante. “Despite a challenging first year, we managed to finish on the eleventh position in the World Constructors Championship. Now, we are very pleased to introduce the first spec of the F111, which means a huge design-effort from our side. This is only a first step as we are planning several updates during the season.”

“The F111 represents a significant step forward for Hispania Racing,” added Team Principal Colin Kolles. “We have made a big improvement for starting our second season in Formula 1 and what you see in our new car confirms Hispania Racing’s commitment to F1.” Colin Kolles also revealed that “the F111 will incorporate the adjustable rear wing.”

Daniel Simon who was responsible for the livery of the car, has perfectly expressed the combination of his personal ideas and those of Hispania Racing.

“Daniel has created a wonderfully confident look for our new car which really captures the effort the whole team has put into developing the F111. The car design and the graphic design perfectly complement one another and mark the real beginnings of our ambitions,” explained Kolles.

Daniel is today one of the most imaginative and adventurous designers in both Hollywood and the motor industry. Although he and his label Cosmic Motor live mostly in the future, he also has a strong passion for motor racings bold iconic liveries from the past, and he has drawn inspiration of them in creating Hispania Racing’s new livery. “I miss fearless visual statements and large beautiful numbers on today’s racing cars.”

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 it enters its second Formula 1 season.

Working within the defined Hispania Racing shape was enjoyable for Daniel, “Playing with the restrictions of what you can do to a complex F1 body is fun. There are many donĀ“ts, but I found a way to lay courageous racing essence on the car.”
