HRT's event:
1) Deny receiving help from Ecclestone.
2) Finally admitted getting help from Ecclestone but insist that HRT can finish the season.

Future event.
3) They didn't finish the season.

Another clutch of knee-jerk cynical posts. Until Hispania have built a chassis we won't know whether they can. They haven't said Bernie is investing, maybe he's just looking for engineers for them. He doesn't need to invest anyway, just enhance the Spanish fans' interest by keeping an eye on their national team. Hispania's existence in itself brings money in, just as Force India and Chandok are bringing Indian money.

Bernie said they are having money problems. And it's the only way he can help them. they don't need help finding engineers. there are plenty of unemployed engineers. And Force has had issues paying their bills since they have been in the sport. A creditor even tried to grab their motorshomes from the race last year due to non payment. It's about the money.
