Assuming the lap times don't drop in Q1 it looks like we'll get a HRT in the race on Sunday. Even if they don't get within 107% in qualifying, they'll be able to point to Karthikeyan's time here to prove the car is capable of doing the laptime, which in the past has been enough for the FIA to allow a car to start.

@Firestorm.
I don't get your comment: 'Hope that Vettel doesn't win in Sunday."
Why don't you hope that SV doesn't win?
To me and also according to the true spirit of British sportmanship you say: That the best man wins!

Perhaps I got it wrong and you are not a Brit?

rob, they said that they will decide tonight. but it is only a matter of throwing a switch, to disengage it. my inkling is that they may forego its use in the race, but may use it in quali. disconnecting by a switch, would not contravene parc ferme rules, as it can be done on the slowing down lap. batteries are sited way down low, just under and behind the exhaust manifold, so could get quite hot, and race conditions will be hot!

After 26 years I missed last year completely. And no wonder I will be missing this year also. Over half of the drivers shouldn't even be on the grid. Sad to say it but F1 is a farce. Brothers, V8 Supercars is where IT is at, baybee....
