HRT sign Chinese development driver | Planet F1 | Formula One News

As part of the collaboration, Qing Hua will have professional assessments by HRT, private tests with cars from different series and simulator tests. And if the Chinese driver's results are 'satisfactory', the team could put him in the F112 at the season-ending Young Driver test.

"I'm very honoured to form a part of the driver development programme at HRT Formula 1 Team since, with work and effort, it will allow me to become the first Chinese Formula 1 driver," Qing Hua said.

"It's a very special moment for me and it's hard to express how happy I am. I've dreamt of becoming a Formula 1 driver since I was very small.

" And now finally my childhood dream has become true thanks to the opportunity that HRT has granted me to become an F1 driver. And even more so this year with all the drivers who are competing, with 6 world champions amongst them.

"Driving an F1 car will be the most incredible experience and I'm going to work hard to earn it.

"Thanks to HRT for offering me the chance to show what I'm capable of. And thanks to my family and everyone who has always supported me. This is only the beginning."

Team boss Luis Pérez-Sala added: "We are working so that one of the team's signs of identity is to serve as a platform to launch young drivers, both nationally and internationally.

"Ma Qing Hua is one those talents in which we believe and we want to help him in his career so that he can make it to Formula 1.

"We like his conditions and we want to take part in his formation by incorporating him to the team's Driver Development Programme so that he can participate in races and private tests, with the objective of him being able to take part in the Formula 1 tests reserved to young drivers."
