I dont see HRT doing any better than last year.
They are on too tight a budget to be able to test and develop the 2011 car

Will be disappointing to see them just show up at races and face a lot of reliability issues.

Read that Hamilton not happy with the 2011 package and terms it as disappointing, this has obviously pXXXXd off the big wigs of Mcl

Sorry can't provide source...

Finally Mercedes and Schumi are showing good form after Schumi set the fastest time at the circuit this year. Keeping my fingers crossed for the Australian GP.

It was a miracle that they managed to get a car to Barcelona, after all the missed payments to Toyota, Dallara etc. The Carabantes, who own the team do not want to put any money into the team. It is only due to Kolles that the team is still alive.
I have a feeling that this was an attempt to show sponsors that they have a car capable of running and attract new sponsors. I think the missing dampers was just an excuse to avoid running the car. The car is basically the same car as last year, with the rear re designed to accommodate the Williams gearbox and some other changes to match the new regulations.
