Sakon Yamamoto F110-03 #20 19th
Bruno Senna F110-02 #21 retired
Hispania Racing, HRT F1 Team completed the race for the first time at the historical Autodromo Nazionale di Monza today. Sakon Yamamoto got off to a good start and was able to equal his best result in a race
this year, finishing in 19th position. The race came to an early conclusion for Bruno Senna, who was only able to do 11 laps before having to stop because of a hydraulic failure.
Dr Colin Kolles, Team Principal:
"There was an incident with a member of our team during Sakon Yamamoto's pit stop. First aid was immediately on the spot and he was taken to hospital for further check-up. He remained conscious and was talking to the doctor. We wish that he will recover quickly. In the race, Bruno Senna had to stop the car on track due to a hydraulic failure. Sakon Yamamoto instead did a good race performance and finished 19th. We could carry on as in Spa and the gap to the team ahead was quite small compared to earlier races."
Sakon Yamamoto, Race driver #20:
"The first thing I would say that I was very worried about the incident in the pit-lane. I asked if he was okay and I was told that he was not badly injured. Apart from that, we had a good pace on the first stint to keep up the other competitors. I kept concentrating during the race and I tried to do the best for the team and we were able to finish another race, so this is good."
Bruno Senna, Race driver #21:
"It was a bit of a shame to have a mechanical failure in the car, because I had a strong race. But now we just have to keep working as hard as always and I'm already looking forward to the next race in Singapore".
