I'd love to believe them, but they'd be lucky to be on Virgin's pace by Barcelona...

HRT have promised a lot this season and so far have failed to deliver on any of it.

I thought the car didn't look too bad considering it was their first time out, and i'm sure they can only improve. I also beleive the smaller teams should be supported as a ten car grid wouldn't be so interesting. Look what has happened in moto gp last year.

i dont really like this guy and i think the chances of getting ahead of lotus are almost nil. Virgin? well perhaps they may have a chance to sneak past them as they are not doing too well either but its not going to be by Barcelona if at all in my opinion. Plus I have zero confidence in either drivers. At least last year they could be praised to begin with for giving two rookies a shot at F1 - even if it didnt really turn out that way in the end. this year is a disappointment all round so far by HRT.

They exude confidence however put this aside and it spells failure.

They have reason to be embarrassed.

Everything that could go wrong has and is man made.

A wing and a prayer is not going to to alter the ultimate outcome.
