Karun Chandhok and Bruno Senna both achieved race finishes for the HRT F1 Team on 15th and 16th position in today's Petronas Malaysian Grand Prix in a race where seven drivers retired.
Dr. Colin Kolles, Team Principal:
"A fantastic day for the team completing our first
two-car finish in only our third race, with no pre-season testing. Bruno Senna had a good start while Karun Chandhok had a bad one. But Karun could find a good pace then and both drivers had reliable races. Again we have made a great step forward. We reached our goal with two cars finishing the race. Congratulations to the team who worked again hard to achieve this result. Now we have to work on more developments for the next Grand Prix in China."
"A fantastic result for the team in only our third race. The car felt really good and I was able to keep a consistent pace. I pitted on lap 17 and had a tricky moment passing Trulli. We have been working really hard and it is good to get our second finish in a row. Overall been a good weekend for us and am very happy for the team.We have been working really hard and it is good to get our second finish in a row."
"I had a good start and gained as much as I could. I am really pleased for the team to have finished the race with both cars. It has been another positive weekend for the team taking a good step forward."
