Impossible to keep HRT going reveals Sala

Luis Perez-SalaDec.31 (GMM) HRT team boss Luis Perez-Sala has admitted that the Spanish team’s Formula One dream is over.

After three seasons at the back of the F1 grid, the Spanish backmarker has folded, even though official confirmation (other than Sala’s admissions during an interview) has not yet emerged.

“It was impossible to go on,” Sala, the former Minardi driver who was brought in by new owners Thesan Capital to run the team this year, told El Mundo Deportivo newspaper.

“When we decided to take charge of the team, we were promised aid that never arrived,” he added.

HRT, originally founded as Campos Meta, but mostly known as Hispania, never scored a point.

    The only way teams like this (Caterham & Marussia included) will be able to survive & grow, will be to enable them to run chassis from Mclaren,Sauber,Lotus ect like in the olden days with March,Mclaren ect!!
