Spanish national team HRT have unveiled its new racer for the upcoming Formula One season with the F112.
HRT took advantage of the filming day regulations in order to shakedown its new car after having been unable to get the car ready in time for the final pre-season test last week.
Narain Karthikeyan had the honour in driving the F112 on its maiden outing late in the afternoon at the track, after a frantic effort by the team to get the car ready in time.
Karthikeyan’s team-mate Pedro de la Rosa was also at the track following the proceedings.
The F112 will be powered by Cosworth engines for the third year in succession.
The Marussia was in action at the Silverstone circuit.
With both teams missing out on pre-season testing, it will be a race against time to become competitive in the opening few races of the new season.
