New HRT fails crash tests reports that the new HRT has failed two of the FIA’s mandatory crash tests.

For 2012, new regulations require that cars pass all crash tests before they may be used on track. This means that HRT’s new car may not currently be tested. HRT had planned to launch the F112 at the next test in Barcelona on 21 February, but it seems that they will have to delay until the last test, starting on 1 March.

This is a setback that the team certainly did not need. After two seasons of struggling at the back of the grid, the Spanish team needs all the testing time it can get.
