Everyone now knows that TATA Groups money went literally down the Albert Park drains in Melbourne in the opening race of the Formula 1 2011 season. The TATAs are sponsoring Narain Kartikeyan’s return to F1 by dishing out a few million dollars to Hispania Racing. In return the team gave its drivers a car that could not come within the 107% time of the pole setting car and with the return of that rule from this year on. Sepang should be even more difficult with its long straights that allow faster runs. Another non qualifying performance would be disastrous. However, Dr. Colin Kolles, the team Principal is confident that HRT will finish ahead of Team Lotus and Virgin Racing.
