Interesting point about the 107% rule. Maybe we should all stop moaning about new teams as long as they can make 107%. And maybe that's why Todt and Bernie don't complain about them. It's a handy yardstick to retain as a reference.

To be honest. I think that if they were going to replace any of their drives it should be Chandhok but i don't believe they will because they are both doing a respectable job. I believe Senna has done a better job banging wheels with di Grassi was good fun to watch while Chandhok was way behind.

If the worries that Bernie stated about HRT's financial state, then Sakon may bring more sponsorship or some other cash injection that could see them through the season. That is the only reason they should replace him. There really isn't a lot the team can do in terms of driver changes to get more speed (especially not with Sakon) because the cars so slow.
If Sakon's experience may play a part in this and bringing updates to the car, then it certainly shouldn't. After one Friday practice session, Karun Chandhock was saying that Klien (a far more experienced racer and tester, was telling the team what they already knew.
I think both HRT drivers have performed well given there equipment and

I cant beleive someone just said the raceday positions are not an ideal criteria for judging drivers and the qualifying is.. if that was true i think Jarno trulli should be awarded best driver last year..

oh and Karun definitely had the least track time and boggled with most problems throughout the year. He started the season by not going out on practice or qualifying .. common stop distorting facts now

To be fair , both the drivers have been neck and neck when you analyse property. Lets not count bahrain. In australia senna was .2 secs faster in qualy while in malaysia and china chandhok was quicker. Again in barcelona senna was quicker by some margin when karun had problems.in monaco senna was out paced by karun in practice due to problems but yet outqualified karun by a tenth. In turkey karun's car was very slow in the straights for the whole weekend and so senna was quicker.the gaps are not as big as in force india or ferrari . So i think both the drivers are doing the best they can with the car and should stay on
