HRT is sitting out this week's second group test of 2011 at Jerez.

Instead, the Spanish team announced that it will take part in a filming session for F1's new tyre supplier Pirelli at Monza.

That test will take place over three days early next week, before Hispania joins the final Spanish group test at Barcelona.

"We are happy to support Pirelli in Monza," said team boss Colin Kolles.

HRT has said that its 2011 car, dubbed F111 and revealed in computer-generated photographs earlier on Tuesday, will not be ready until the Bahrain test in early March.
