HRT preview the Korean GP

This weekend's Korean GP will be a new experience for Pedro de la Rosa and Narain Karthikeyan as the duo have never raced there.

For all the latest F1 odds on the Korean Grand Prix, round 16 of the 2012 F1 Championship, visit Sky Bet.

Pedro de la Rosa: "I know very little of Korea because I've never run there, all I know of the circuit is from my work on the simulator. As it's a track that's barely used the surface is very slippery. So we've got no time to lose and will have to do as many laps as possible to get to know the track. It should be a circuit that's better suited to us than Suzuka. Also, after having seen that in Japan the new floor is an evident step forward, I'm really looking forward to it. But there's no doubt that we have a lot of work ahead."

Narain Karthikeyan: "From what I've seen the Korea International Circuit is very complete as it is a mix of various things such as very close walls, quick corners, long straights and hairpins. I've never raced there so I'll have to make the most of my time on track to adapt and set the car up. After having retired in two consecutive races I'm looking forward to this Grand Prix and hoping to find some luck again and return to a positive line of results."

Dani Clos: "Driving the F112 is always a great satisfaction and I feel very lucky and thankful to the team for this new opportunity they have given to me to drive in the first free practice session in Korea. Like always, I'm going to give my 100% and my main objective is to work for the team to complete the established programme in the best way possible. To be able to contribute, even in a modest way, makes me very proud and, personally, it's an experience that is helping me to grow as a driver. And even more so having someone like Pedro next to me."

Luis Perez-Sala - team principal: "Just like the drivers I don't know the Korea International Circuit but what I do know is that we're arriving in good form and aiming to progress as we did in Suzuka. The important thing will be to adapt as soon as possible to optimize our set-up without losing any time. Due to its characteristics, it's a track where we should perform well, so we'll work as hard as we can to maintain and improve our competitiveness. We're not lacking any determination or motivation. I'm happy to be giving Dani another opportunity and for him to contribute to Pedro and Narain's important work on the F112."
