    HRT will most likely not show up on the 2013 Formula One grid since the entry limit passed yesterday and HRT failed to pay their entrance fee so far. This is the official list of teams / drivers (although drivers are outdated) as of yesterday.

  2. To bad but seriously, it was almost a safety issue.

    HRT telling the drivers that they should perhaps not race because the brakes might fail in Brazil.
    Bosses like they are they did it anyways.

    It´s just no viable and you should not get involved in things if you can´t pay for it.
    I´m all for private teams and wish them the best but solve the economy BEFORE you enter F1.
    You can´t enter on the notion that you "might" be able to stay.
  3. Sad to see HRT was not in the List
    If any other Buys HRT then can they Make it to grid of 2013??

    Well, the entries are finalized so according to the rules: no, not possible.
  6. Too bad. I have nothing against them, but I won't miss them.
    We don't need teams 4-5s off pace, therefore I really hope Marussia and Caterham can close the gap to TR so that we also see some good fights at the back.
    You coould see improvement at Caterham (not much this year though) and at Marussia (especially this year and next year the get KERS) but I've not seen any improvement at HRT.
    I think they always faild to qualify at the first race and improved a little bit during the next races but then nothing happend.

    We need teams that can afford F1 an do some development and not teams that just the minimum to stay within 107%.
  7. It is infinitely more depressing news! Too bad the HRT team, will be missing! :( :unsure:
  8. Ok Now we don't have HRT for 2013 season so it decreases cars to 22 from 24
    Now how the Q1,Q2,Q3 will de done Previously the last 7 cars will be knocked out in Q1 and Q2
  9. bottom 6 will be eliminated simple,
    Q1 22
    Q2 16
    Q3 10
  10. No more epic liveries.. real shame :thumbsdown:
