Hispania Racing have today announced an agreement with the Williams F1 team, who will supply the Spanish team with gearbox technology from next season.

The deal will extend for the lifecycle of the current Cosworth engine technology. Cosworth is the engine supplier for both teams.

Dr. Colin Kolles, the Hispania team principal, said that this deal shows how serious his team are about moving forward with their F1 programme: “This technical partnership is a significant step forward for Hispania Racing, HRT F1 Team to improve its performance, and we are very happy to do this together with an engineering company and race-team like Williams F1, which has an impressive track-record and astonishing heritage.”

Williams CEO Alex Burns said that the gearbox technology has performed well this season, and that sharing it with Hispania would be beneficial for both teams. “This is a logical partnership given Williams and Hispania's mutual relationship with Cosworth,” he said. “Our gearbox technology has consistently proven itself as both competitive and reliable, and hence this agreement will be a positive development for both organizations.”
