HRT 'not worried' by Narain's lack of pace

HRT 'not worried' by Narain's lack of pace

A spokesman for Hispania Racing insists they are not worried about Narain Karthikeyan's lack of pace during the recent pre-season test at Barcelona.

Hispania Racing spent three days testing at the Spanish circuit, running Karthikeyan against Tonio Liuzzi and Giorgio Mondini. However, the Indian driver, who has been confirmed for this year's Championship, proved to be the slowest of the three.

He was over a second behind Liuzzi, although they ran on different days, and more than two seconds down on Mondini when he was up against the Swiss driver on the Sunday.

Hispania, though, insist Karthikeyan's lack of pace is not cause for concern.

"We're not worried about the results of the test," a Hispania spokesman told ESPNF1.

"Everybody knows that the lap times during a test is not the most important thing, because the teams use the test in order to prove and make changes in the car."

Hispania is the only outfit yet to confirm their complete 2011 line-up with the spokesman adding that they may wait until the eve of the Australian GP to do so.
