Colin Kolles has engaged vehicle concept artist and Hollywood designer Daniel Simon to create a new corporate identity for the Hispania team.

Daniel Simon said: “Being offered a blank canvas by the 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 going to be an exciting journey as Hispania Racing evolves and grows and I’m looking forward to the challenge of creating a strong visual statement for the team.”

Here’s Simon’s promo video.

Karthikeyan braces up for F1 testing

This week, the 'fastest Indian on earth' will do his seat-fitting at the HRT factory besides other technical tweaks ahead of the first test of the season in Valencia from February 1-3.

"We have four tests before the race in Bahrain, the first being in Valencia, followed by Jerez (Feb 10-13) and Barcelona (Feb 18-21) and then a four-day test in Bahrain (March 3-6) a week before the season opener," said Narain. "Our new car won't be ready for the first three tests in Spain where I will drive the 2010 car."

Narain's last F1 stint was in 2007 as a test driver for Williams. So, for the 33-year-old is keen on familiarizing himself fast with the G-forces of driving an F1 car. So the tests in Spain, even with the 2010 car, take on an added significance.


Narain says the new HRT car will have adjustable rear wings. "We are not likely to use the KERS. But adjustable wings will hopefully add to our potency," added Narain.

I think it looks great , I always hate sponsorless cars but they have done a good job here especially with the big number ...

Its much better looking than the Sauber for example which has sponsors but looks rubbish...
