Won't the TF110 be out of date by then? :blink:

It'll be faster than their current car anyway :lol:


Yeah, I think my Volkswagen Beetle is faster than the HRT. :p

Well when you take out the joke ones, you have 7. And Yamamoto won't be used - he's only there for the money and HRT look to be financially secure now.

wasnt Villeneuve planning to join HRT with his team? I heard something like that

its very good to know that the new teams seem to improve a lot next year.
lotus is looking pretty good with the new technology and they started developing very early.
virgin wont improve that much I guess, but they seem to be secure at least
and HRT will be pretty good with the knowledge of Toyota who every year had a podium-car

Indeed. Plans never really got going though. And yes, future of the 3 new teams is looking bright!

Having knowledge of what will be a two year old car won't be much help, and anyway they have seconds to make up on the rest of the field. I struggle to see HRT being anymore than backmarkers again next year.

Toyota said the TF110 could have been a podium or a winning car!
And I guess there will be persons from Toyota still working on the car for HRT, it's looking pretty bright for them to close the gap to the "old" teams :)

but indeed it could be a problem developing the car, I'm worried about that

Well they can use the TF110 as a base and even if it is 2s slower than the best now, it's better than 6 or 7s. Plus they have more money now...
