HRT has finally confirmed that it will move to a new home in Madrid from May.
For its first two years the team has been based at the German facility of former team boss Colin Kolles, and more recently it had a temporary base in Valencia.
It has been looking for a permanent home in Spain, with financial considerations obviously a primary factor in the process. The team will now be based at the Complejo Deportivo Madrid Caja Mágica, a new business and exhibition complex.
Team boss Luis Perez Sala said: “We’ve been working hard for months and establishing our permanent headquarters was very important. Finding a space in which we could all work together was vital, in order to optimize work and generate a good team feeling, a sense of belonging.
“When the adaptation of the facilities is completed and every department starts working under the same roof in a few months, we will only have one step left to take, which is to have the design department in Madrid too. All this implies not only becoming a place to feel identified with and carry out activities for the team, its sponsors, suppliers and fans, but also an important reference in technology and R&D in the centre of Madrid.”
