He won the 2011 1600cc China Touring Car Championship, I guess that qualifies him for F1.

The best part is this guy can't even speak chinese! Even foreigners laugh when hear him trying to speak in Chinese. Chinese are not proud of this guy and he won't sell in China! I wonder what marketing stunt HRT was trying to pull lol.

What has this guy done to warrant a seat in F1. Perhaps I will get my cheque book out and take a crack at it too!

Yeah... me in an HRT...I can see it all now.

Makes me sick when talented kids going through the ranks have no hope of progressing in racing due to lack of sponsorship. Then a collection of unknown middle of the pack, cheque toting wannabe drivers get the nod.

Buck, Mix,
Don't get mad at the new guy..Buying a seat in F1 is now the norm..Take a close look at the grid last Sunday. How many driver are
seated because of money.
True-fully how can you call Hua 'mediocre'.. have you ever seen him
drive .. I have no opinion. I wish him the best of luck.
He will get a sampling of the real world of F1..after you shoot John
we will know little about Hua.. Actually nothing about his ability..
Lighten up Mix, stop using Tiapan 'Logic'
