Mar.12 (GMM) HRT founder Adrian Campos has broken his foot.
The 49-year-old former Minardi driver, whose Spanish outfit almost collapsed and was taken over and renamed ahead of the 2010 season, remains at HRT as executive vice president.
Campos is currently hobbling around on crutches.
“It was a stupid accident,” he is quoted as saying by the German-language Speedweek.
“I tripped and broke my foot at home. Now I have to wear a plaster for two weeks,” revealed Campos.
According to former F1 driver Alex Wurz, HRT should have considered retaining the Campos name.
“In English, HRT stands for Hormone Replacement Therapy,” the Austrian laughed in conversation with Switzerland’s Motorsport Aktuell, referring to the menopause and sex change treatment.
