"HRT had a difficult 2011 but they battled on and finished ahead of Virgin, who will race as Marussia this year.
"The team are under new ownership now with former Minardi driver Luis Perez-Sala taking over from Colin Kolles. They are trying to establish themselves as a sort of Spanish national team and have based themselves in Madrid.
"They have taken on the vastly experienced Pedro de la Rosa and I think his knowledge as a test driver for McLaren can certainly benefit the team.
"However, they missed pre-season testing again this year and while they managed to put a few laps on the car before arriving in Melbourne, what their car will be like remains to be seen."
