Default Yamamoto replaces Chandhok at HRT

Karun Chandhok will not be racing at the German Grand Prix next weekend.

Karun says "I expect to be back for some races later in the year"

^^ Looks like Yamamoto is pooling in a lot of money for HRT!

Its a shame that the team is losing focus on developing their cars.

Looks like HRT are just doing this all for Money.

The team is losing focus and soon may quit F1, with this kind of development.

Firstly, their cars never had time for Pre-season testing.

Secondly, inspite of having a reliable car(Almost all races Karun has had a complete race) they are not focusing on developing it further.

Sad for Karun to sit-out.

Everyone is in there for the money. F1 is an expensive sport. You can only concentrate on development of an expensive car when the money is behind it.

Just a point on the side. One of the race magazines (can't remember which one as I have to read to much) worked out what the gross product of the F1 industries/involved industries is. The claim is if it would be a country it would be the 4th largest economy.

Its sad that Karun has to sit out in Germany but I guess things like this were to be expected from a cash strapped team barely making it to the grid . Chandok deserves better .
