Formula One newcomers Hispania (HRT) will take over development of their car after ending a partnership with Italian chassis maker Dallara, the Spanish-based team said on Wednesday.
“HRT F1 Team, Hispania Racing, and Italian chassis manufacturer Dallara Automobili S.p.A have together agreed on amicable terms not to pursue their collaboration,” they said in a statement ahead of Sunday’s Turkish Grand Prix.
“Hispania Racing will continue to develop and improve the Dallara designed F110 chassis via its own development program,” added the team.
Dallara completed the car driven by Brazilian Bruno Senna and Indian Karun Chandhok this season after a late rescue of the cash-strapped team.
The car had been commissioned by Campos Meta, which was renamed Hispania after a takeover by major shareholder Jose Ramon Carabante in February. The team have yet to score a point in six races.
