HRT Formula 1 Team confirms Ma Qing Hua for FP1 at Circuit of Americas
Austin, Thursday 15th of November 2012
HRT Formula 1 Team confirms that Ma Qing Hua will take part in the first free practice session of the United States Grand Prix, which will get underway tomorrow at Circuit Of Americas in Austin, Texas. This will be the fifth time for the Shanghai born driver at the F112 wheel and will be replacing Narain Karthikeyan for that single session.
Ma Qing Hua: “It’s fantastic to be able to step back into the car for a free practice session and to do so at a new circuit for every team and driver makes it even more special and fun. Being the first out on track to help the team is a great responsibility and I want to thank them again for the opportunity they’re giving me. Little by little I’m racking up more miles and gaining the necessary experience to grow as a driver, and the continuity I’m getting is also important to help my confidence. Last week I was in Shanghai and received a lot of support from my country, which makes me work even harder to be prepared for any challenge”.
