HRT fails crash tests

LAUNCH DELAY: HRT's Pedro de la Rosa drives the teams 2011 car during a training session at the Jerez racetrack, Spain.

Formula 1 team HRT, who in February signed Indian Narain Karthikeyan as one of their drivers, will not be able to try out their new car until the final pre-season tests in March after it failed two crash tests.

The team, who used their old car for a two-day test at Jerez in southern Spain said on Twitter they had not passed the mandatory tests "by a minor margin".

They passed 14 other tests and the chassis was also approved.

HRT added that the failure would prevent them rolling out the new car at the second pre-season test in Barcelona later in February.

Under new regulations introduced this season, cars must have passed the FIA crash tests and have had their chassis approved before they can take part in regular testing.

The third and final test in Barcelona starts on March 1, with the season getting underway in Australia on March 18. HRT have yet to score a point in two seasons.
