HRT target race finish in Malaysia

Hispania are determined to make it onto the starting grid in Malaysia with team principal Colin Kolles saying the 107 per cent rule is unlikely to be an issue under "normal circumstances".


The Spanish-based outfit arrived at the season-opening grand prix in Australia with a car that didn't compete in any of the pre-season tests. Things didn't go much better in practice on Friday as they only completed a single lap and it was no surprise when they failed to qualify for the race.

The team though are confident they will turn things around at Sepang this weekend and are targeting as many laps as possible during practice.

"The expectations for Malaysia are to get back to normality," Kolles said.

"We know that the car has potential and we hope that we will be able to get all updates on the cars. The 107 per cent should not be an issue under normal circumstances. The target is to do as many laps as possible in free practice in order to prepare for the qualifying session and for the race."

Tonio Liuzzi says they are not only targeting the starting grid, but also plan to finish the race.

"I think Sepang will be a really good track for the F111 because it's a very technical and demanding track," he said. "It's a challenging venue for our first proper race but a place where we will get a lot of information on the car. Our expectations for the weekend are to do well in qualifying and finish the race, confirming the performance and reliability of the car.

"I am really confident and motivated for this race. I'm sure things will be a lot different from Australia because we are better prepared and conscious of what we need to do."

Ciao Jules, F1 remembers the affable Frenchman
