HRT has requested a delay to the scrutineering of Pedro de la Rosa's car until Friday morning, while it continues to work on completing its second chassis.
The Spanish team lodged a request with the Australian Grand Prix race stewards on Thursday to be allowed to delay scrutineering of car No. 22, with the FIA duly agreeing for it to be examined before 11 a.m..
HRT only managed to shake down one of its cars at Barcelona last week during a "filming day," before shipping its contenders to Melbourne for the first race of the campaign. De la Rosa's car will need to go through scrutineering before it will be allowed to take part in practice.
