It is because Narain has the necessary mystical and supernatural powers to drive imaginary laps. Narain has received a vision of the HRT supercar, but unbelievers like Pedro can only see a few spare washers short of a spanner. It is his misfortune.


You make my day Mustang... :rotfl:

this team is unbelievable. They hire de la Rosa as a well-rated test driver, but then Kartikeyan will be the first to drive the new car. Amazing decisions there :D


It's a filming, last season tyres, limited rpm and just up to 100km ... nothing to do with testing ...

com'on! sure you can do it better :lol:

Narain drives now but next time it will be Pedro where they can make more use of his skills. Its probably better to allow Narain first as he is probably in the best position to compare the performance of the car to last years car because he has had more time with driving the F111. The teams decision makes more sense .

Well I for one am excited to see this car, although I'm pretty sure they're still using the same 2010 chassis as they did for 2011, especially since the new rules are specifically designed so that the old chassis can be reused. They didn't even have EBD/Of-throttle last season. So I'm expecting the F110/F111 with a step nose, maybe a new Front Wing...oh and new livery.

Either HRT get more funding and stay into F1 for long(er) or they quit once 2014 comes along because that requires developing a new car. Or perhaps even 2013 if the FIA demand lower chassis to get rid of step nose (unlikely, but perhaps nosecone rules will be changed)

Anyway, still excited to see the new car.

Have you read any release from Pedro/Narain or anyone associated with HRT, they are not using the Dallara chassis anymore.

Far too old now and even Joe Saward states they are using a new chassis.

Would love that to be the case. Sadly I'm expecting a barely changed sequel to last year.

This is getting funny. No-one has a camera/phone to make a sneak-peak or whatever?

Assuming the car is existing, I guess it is currently under repair, not complete, not in ideal visual state to debute with a photo with pieces taken off and mechanics working on it. (It's not rare with a very new car.) So it would be a shame to reveal it this way.

Maybe they perfected McLaren's see-through bodywork concept...

Either HRT spent a large proportion of their annual budget on ensuring no one gets a glimpse of the car or there aren't many journalists interested in taking a picture of the car today. I'm predicting the latter.

Give them a break.

What is the problem in waiting a few minutes.

Like other teams didn´t work on the car at the garage before showing it to the world.

Are you suggesting that in part the 2012 HRT was developed by LOLcats?

Ok, a suggestion; Launch it in the pitch black at 1am so nobody can actually see it then that will buy them a few more hours to finish it in the morning...

"HRT F1 mechanic just ran down Barcelona pit lane, asking GP2 teams to borrow bolts. I'm not kidding! My god they are in trouble"


"One of the HRT mechanics ran down the Barcelona pitlane to the GP2 team and asked for some bolts. I don't know how that makes them faster"
