2012 HRT F112 Karthikeyan

The F112 was the last F1 car by Hispania Racing Team headed by former F1 driver Luis Perez-Sala. The F112 has been designed and developed at the technical office located in Munich, Germany. With the limited budget, designers team by Jean-Claude Martens (Technical Director), Paul White (Chief Designer), and Stephane Chosse (Head of Aerodynamics) developed a simple and clean design, including a front and rear wing extremely similar to the versions run on the HRT F111. The car was still powered by the Cosworth engine, coupled to a Williams gearbox. At the first GP of 2012, held at Melbourne, Australia, both HTR drivers Pedro de la Rosa and Narain Karthikeyan failed to qualify within the 107% rule by more than a second. As of the second race however, both drivers managed to qualify their cars at each event, albeit without ever getting close to a points finish.
