Dear Mr Frost, I don't think that anyone needs any qualifications to realise that Mr Hamiltons remarks are 100% correct, the grid positions and the race results surely speak for themselves!?

Several people? Bit more than that, mate. Many people will be left without jobs in a country that is on the verge of collapse with 28% of the population unemployed. I hope they can all land on their feet but it will be tough.

To the usual haters and begrudgers on this forum, do you have any idea the commitment and financial backing just to make the grid in any form of high level motorsport, never mind F1. Its an achievement they can make the grid and with such financial pressure to be still cracking on with the new car up until a few weeks ago it commendable. They should be supported not slated, it takes balls to keep fighting however much against the odds.

I have friends at HRT and do not like to see anyone lose their job, but sadly the reason for them going bust is their reliance on being national team of Spain. Spain has never been able to afford an F1 team. If they were based in UK there would be more interest in saving them.

This is sad and unfortunate, but also a great opportunity for a company to come in and purchase this team at a reduced price. Redbull bought Jag when they were leaving. Maybe a manufacturer like VW, but being located in Spain and not the UK is a draw back.

apart from the present economic upset in spain, there is no reason why being located in spain would be a handicap. ok, most teams are based in uk, but it is not a prerequisite for success.

it is the people in control who influence the success or otherwise of a team
