Brazil could be last lap for dying HRT team

By on Friday, November 23, 2012

According to strong paddock rumours, Sunday's Brazilian grand prix will be the last lap for ailing backmarkers HRT.

Publicly looking for a buyer, it is reported that staff have actually already been served with pending redundancy notices that will come into effect after the chequered flag waves on Sunday.

"None of us know what will happen," team driver Pedro de la Rosa, who was expected to stay at the Spanish team in 2013, admitted to reporters in Brazil.

When asked about the redundancy notices, he answered: "All I know is that we are here and that everyone here has not received anything.

"What happens after is unknown," added de la Rosa.

"I hope the team continues but at this moment in time I cannot say any more."
