Can't play hopes down much more can they? What is the point spending all this money and still being rubbish? Can see this team folding or being bought out (again!)sometime this year.

Im not a HRT fan by a long way but got to give them credit still here and looking at a third season in F1.
Also Given the start they actually had and also being refered to as the worse team in F1, they have still beat virgin twice.

I would put money on HRT becoming a respected established team. Not so long ago, people laughed at Red Bull and Force India too...

I believe in this team. I believe they have potential. They have already proven so many people wrong (i.e. they are still here!)

@rjbetty

I take your point but the money been put up is small, DM put a huge amount into taking RBR to where they are, you cannot draw parallels. FI's budget has been better, I've seen no evidence of the new investor putting 100 million and proven management staff into the team so it's the same as last year....except you have an unknown quantity running the team....about as safe as Greek bonds.
