HRT requests delay to scrutineering

HRT requests a delay to scrutineering for the car of Pedro de la Rosa ahead of the Australian Grand Prix
HRT has asked the FIA to delay scrutineering on the car on Pedro de la Rosa ahead of the start of on-track action in Melbourne for the Australian Grand Prix.

The team has been facing a race against time to prepare for the new season after the failure to pass the FIA crash tests delayed its pre-season preparations.

The first of its two 2012 cars was able to complete a filming day in Barcelona last week with the second car being worked on at Albert Park to allow the team to run this weekend.

The team has now requested that scutineering on the #22 car – that of de la Rosa – be delayed until Friday morning, just before the opening practice session gets underway.

De la Rosa will not be able to take part in any track activities until scrutineering has been successfully passed.

Scrutineering, though complicated is more or less a formality. However, the constant pushing back of F1 testing procedures by these smaller teams does not help confidence. If HRT or Marussia's lack of pre-season testing results in a catastrophe, question should be asked about their been allowed to run at all in the first race. I only have goodwill for the small teams, but they need to step up a bit.

Come on HRT..... I've defended you boys and girls, offered you respect for your improved attempts and the small glimmers of hope you've shown us. This is just another step backwards. Get it together before we all just write you off. Two years of excuses must now turn into an effort to be a serious team!
