if you need to rework areas of the tub so be it ...modify tub 2 and swap the go .
They simply are not ready it´s not just the crash test...they are not allowed to run the car without ,sure,but you can build your car.
If your chasis is not homologated, what's the point to have it in Barcelona?
All chasis must have the FIA approval, so if they are crash-testing chasis number 2 (let's say) and your chasis number 1 it is not improved to pass the test, you won't be able to use it on test.
Autosport says that HRT won't be ready for Barcelona test.
HRT have to be at Barcelona treat it as if it were the first race of the season even if you have to assemble it in the pits!
