HRT will not participate in the Australian Grand Prix after failing to beat the 107% time in qualifying.

The fastest time in Q1 was Sebastian Vettel’s 1’25.296, meaning the 107% target time was 1’31.267.

Vitantonio Liuzzi missed the cut by 1.7 seconds and Narian Karthikeyan was three seconds outside.

They will not be allowed to start the race unless the stewards grant them a dispensation. The two cars only covered seven laps during practice.

Virgin drivers Timo Gock and Jerome d’Ambrosio were inside the 107% time by 1.4 and 0.4 seconds respectively.
