Luis Pérez-Sala, Team Principal:
"Before anything I would like to say that we’re very relieved because our mechanic, Craig, is well after this morning’s incident as we were all very worried. As for the racing, we tried out the wing that we specifically brought for this circuit and it seems like the car’s balance is good and it’s working as expected. Our only weak point was the brakes but it’s something we’re going to continue working on to improve. We’re comfortably inside the 107%, so this is confirmation that the wing is working well. Tomorrow we will evaluate again how the upgrades are performing but we’re running well”.

I assume that the team must have known after practice (and maybe before?) that they did not have brakes suitable for the race.
So why has nobody batted an eyelid about HRT being in such a state that they are only pretending to be able to race?
