Seeing that most of us who watch Formula 1 are armchair pundits, myself included, it makes it really easy to poke fun at a team like HRT. Even though they are one of the slowest teams in Formula 1, the team is working extremely hard to develop from such a limited budget.
It made me think about how much effort is going into developing this team. They may not have made a complete fan out of me, but I’ll think twice before I shoot another jaded remark toward them when I see them on the grid. You can see that they are working hard.
Will HRT remain in Formula 1 in five years time? We’ll see, but it will be interesting to see how this team develops.
