HRT aiming to finish

Bruno Senna and Karun Chandhok believes that getting to the finish of the 2010 Australian Grand Prix would be a fantastic achievement for Hispania, given the circumstances which currently surround the team.

Senna will line up twenty-third for tomorrow’s race, after overcoming a hydraulic issue in practice 3, with team-mate Chandhok right behind him.

Bruno Senna – 23rd: “It’s been a bit of a difficult day, stopping on the circuit this morning with an hydraulic problem after we solved yesterday’s fuel pressure problem and then we did a good job with the team. We continue to learn how the car reacts to set-up changes. We left early in the session as we were afraid that it would just start to rain. To finish where we are on the grid is okay in the circumstances, and the goal is to make it through the race tomorrow.”

Karun Chandhok – 24th: “I was one of the early starters and joined track with a set of soft tyres. I wanted to make it through Q1 and I did. I am very pleased with this result for our second Grand Prix. We are not too far from the top runners.I haven’t made any significant errors. It’s a great way to start my F1 career!”

Dr. Colin Kolles (Team Principal): “To have both cars go through the Q1 session is a good result. After the hard work we have been doing, it is nice that we can focus on finer details now. Both drivers did a good job in this second qualifying and handled all the pressure extremely well. Congratulations to the whole team for a great job.”
