The small Spanish Formula 1 team HRT hopes that the British Grand Prix at Silverstone next week will prove that the recent improvements to the Cosworth-powered F112 will allow their drivers to perofmr well on the fast British circuit.
Spanish driver Dani Clos will step into the F112 for the second time this season to take part in the first practice session on Friday.
Clos will take over Narain Karthikeyan's car and accompany Pedro de la Rosa for the first 90 minutes of practice at the British Grand Prix. Pirelli have elected their soft and hard tires for this race.

"I’m very happy to step into the F112 once again in Silverstone, a place where I’ve got good memories since I’ve made the podium every time I’ve been in GP2,” Clos said in a press release of the team.
“After Barcelona I’ve really been looking forward to this new opportunity. The work we’re carrying out with the team is positive and I think that I can make a good contribution. I will be able to run in better conditions than in Barcelona because the car was new back then and I had to carry out various aero tests. Now I’ve got a new opportunity, not to prove anything but to work with the team and evolve as much as we can,” he added.
