The Hispania team had something to smile about after both of its drivers finished the Malaysian Grand Prix.
Karun Chandhok continued to rack up the miles for the Spanish team as he finished in fifteenth, with Bruno Senna in sixteenth.
The team now hope to bring developments to the car for the next round of the championship in China.
Karun Chandhok – 15th: “I am fantastically happy to have finished my second race today after our difficult debut in Bahrain. I kept out of trouble and pitted on lap 17. On lap 45, I had a tricky moment, passing Trulli’s Lotus. A great thank to the team who did a fantastic job. To finish was very difficult today but I am happy to have done it.”
Bruno Senna – 16th: “I had a good start and gained as much as I could. I am really pleased for the team to have finished the race with both cars. It has been another positive weekend for the team taking a good step forward.”
Colin Kolles, Team Principal: “A fantastic day for the team completing our first two-car finish in only our third race, with no pre-season testing. Bruno Senna had a good start while Karun Chandhok had a bad one. But Karun could find a good pace then and both drivers had reliable races. Again we have made a great step forward. We reached our goal with two cars finishing the race. Congratulations to the team who worked again hard to achieve this result. Now we have to work on more developments for the next Grand Prix in China.”
