Hispania Racing, HRT F1 Team was unlucky at the German Grand Prix race. Bruno Senna finished the 67 laps in Hockenheim in position 19 after showing a good performance and achieving another race finish for the Spanish team. Sakon Yamamoto, however, had to stop prematurely.

Dr Colin Kolles, Team Principal:
"Today, we didn't reap the fruit of our labour. Bruno Senna had a good pace in the race until he had to do an unplanned second pit stop. A slow puncture made the second stop necessary and the chance for a better result was gone. Sakon Yamamoto stopped in lap 19 on the straight after the car suddenly stopped. The reason for this we have to investigate in order to understand what exactly happened. I have to thank the team for their work the whole weekend and for their very good pit stops today."

Sakon Yamamoto, Race driver #20:
"I appreciate that the team has given me another chance to race in Germany. But it was a disappointing race for the team because we couldn't achieve the target to finish with two cars. During the weekend, we could improve our performance but unfortunately, we had some issues on the car and the gearbox. All in all, the race weekend was better than in Silverstone and I could get more experience with the car. We tried some adjustments on the set-up which will help us already for the next races."

Bruno Senna, Race driver #21:
"We were having a good race today and we were very competitive this weekend. We could race the others but then we had a slow puncture, unfortunately. We had to do an unplanned pit stop that ended our challenge. I want to thank the team for their good pit stops and for doing a great job all over the weekend. Now, we have to focus on the next races and hope to be luckier again."
