HRT just needs funds. Apparently Klien has found some. If only he had found it 6 months earlier he would have been in the cockpit.

I think Sakon and Christian will get to race before the season is over. They can't pay all that money just to be reserves. Their sponsors would want to see them racing at their home race (the sponsor's).

Sakon might be in the cockpit in Japan. At least he should be, since he's paying.

Klien's a great signing for HRT, he's a proven test driver and wasn't totally short of speed despite his inexperience in his first F1 spell. There's only so much he can do if the car's a turkey adn the team are underfunded though.

I don't see the need for two test/reserve drivers in the current F1 climate. With no in season testing, what's the point? Just another unrequired expense, not that CK would be that dear.
Maybe he can change tyres, or polish nose cones on a race weekend?
