Ma Qing Hua is determined to remain in F1 despite the uncertainty surrounding HRT after the team was put up for sale.

Hua became China’s first F1 driver when he took part in Friday’s practice sessions at the Italian and Singapore races with HRT.

However, the team has since been put up for sale by investment group Thesan Capital, who claim they have a “number of groups interested in buying the team.”

But whatever happens with the backmarker outfit, Hua is hoping to continue in Formula One.

“No matter who will be the boss, the team is still there. So what I need to focus on now is to improve myself through training,” he told Fujian’s Southeastern Express.

Meanwhile, his manager Jin Yong even went as far as to claim that the Chinese driver will be in action at next season’s Chinese GP.

“No matter who the boss is, Ma will definitely compete in next year’s F1 race in Shanghai,” Jin said.
