Back in March Jose Ramon Carabante vowed that HRT would be beating Virgin and Team Lotus by the Spanish GP. Well here we are gearing up for Monaco, Barcelona has been and gone, and HRT are last in the constructors championship.

Furthermore the ludicrous arguement that 2nd tier teams should be done away with is like saying the Olympic 100m sprint should have only 4 runners and not 8 cos someone is going to come last and be the slowest. Even 4th place is last and therefore the slowest! Leave HRT alone people, they are already at the bottom and fighting hard, pick on someone like Ferrari and Mercedes who have the budgets but aren'
