After the Austrian event, where the goals were not met again, Facu Regalia held a meeting with Franz Hilmer and the Argentine gave him the reasons for not competing with Hilmer Motorsport anymore.

In the next few hours Regalia will draw up his racing program with his working team, exploring different options to continue his racing career. It should be noted that it doesn´t change his position as a member in the Driver Development Programme of the Sahara Force India Formula 1 Team.

Facu Regalia: “On Sunday, after our second race in Austria, I made the decision to stop competing with the team. I spoke to Franz Hilmer and I gave him a number of reasons: the team wasn´t able to have a competitive car, as I had set-up problems in Bahrain, Spain and Austria, and engine issues throughout the season, even in Monaco, despite there it didn´t play an important part. On the other hand, the lack of financial support has played a significant role as well, because otherwise I would have joined DAMS, Racing Engineering, ART or Campos Racing. The solution involves finding a new team, but I need that support which I haven´t got so far with the exception of YPF, Varlion and a private Argentine entrepreneur. I would like to clear my professional relationship with SFIF1 doesn´t have to change, because the team isn´t directly involved in the technical part. What I know is that, with my results in the championship so far, my presence in this Driver Development Programme was over as of September due to lack of results. Personally I need a car to fight for top-places, as I proved last year, and remain intact my chances to reach the pinnacle of motorsport: Formula 1. At this point I´m evaluating proposals received to race in the Formula E but calmly, just after dealing with my current situation in the GP2 Series. I wish to thank YPF and Varlion for their support and confidence”.
