Di Grassi 23rd after engine problem

HRT out-qualified a rival team on merit for the first time at Istanbul this weekend – though it was partly thanks to Lucas di Grassi suffering a technical problem.

The Virgin driver revealed on Twitter he had “massive engine problems” during qualifying.

He lines up 23rd for tomorrow’s race behind Bruno Senna in one HRT and Karun Chandhok in the other.

Team mate Timo Glock starts 21st behind the two Lotuses.

      Will you provide the 400 Million dollers Ferrari has or the 800 grand prix of expertise?

      Either that or I must assume you want 20 Ferrari’s racing each other.

      I second that.

      How can you criticise the slow teams, I doubt you could design and build a formula 1 car in 6 months.

        Not to mention the fact that drivers have to start somewhere and have a chance to prove themselves.
