HRT is rebuilding the team after new owners with new headquarters relocation, 80% new staff, while yet trying to have a better car and better team base. If the team does not meet the deadlines next year I'll be disappointed too, but to me they did a great effort so far.
As far as why being in F1 while in this situation, is what I completely disagree with you, this is to me the most important thing, they are doing the serious effort, and they have passion for it. I like the underdog, yes, hell yeah, it's easy to buy an existing team and put millions on it, but I respect those who start from scratch and evolve not being afraid of being criticized.

The car does not have a step nose. Whereas the Merc and Caterham do. The only other car wihout a step, is the McLaren!

The team have two major deadlines to meet, 1) To have completed all crash tests before January, and 2) The first (or second!) test session.
These aims should have, and would have been set out a long time ago, so why on earth the team was running round the pit lane asking GP2 teams for bolts is staggering.
You are either here to compete, or here to take up space. It is completely unacceptable that the cars first real laps will come in FP1. It's a joke. The deadline for attending the 1st, 2nd or 3rd test were known a long time ago! Why not aim for the 1st test to give a few weeks of leeway of maybe missing the 1st, or 2nd?!
Honestly, it's about time this team took it seriously, this is not the early 90's anymore. This is meant to be a fully fledged F1 out fit. All this counts for Marussia too. This is their 3rd attempt and the improvement is minimal. Contrast that to Caterham! Sure, Caterham have more funding, but thats the point. If you can't do F1 properly, why bother at all?
All im saying is, it's about time they took a serious effort at this or went home. Just making a filming day is not serious!
Is anything that I've unreasonable?

My take is that HRT will need to have KERS ready for the Mugello test prior to the start of the European races.
HRT need to solve off track issues like appointmenting an experience TD to troubleshoot the new car issues.

You may say just charge it and use it for the start...but then at the back you rarely need a god start or even can make full use of what is avaialable come first corner..I rememenber one Adrian Sutil taking almost a full season to learn how to drive slow enough to make the first lap...
I don´t see the benefit of destracting yourself with something that will not lift you .would it help getting ahead of Marussia who will not have it? HRT was beating them already ,see no sign of major improvement ,in fact they managed to get their car later out than HRT for the first time....
