HRT’S BAD LUCK CONTINUES: An HRT mechanic was taken to hospital after being struck by a Formula 1 car in the pitlane during the first practice session in Montreal.

MONTREAL, Canada - An HRT Formula 1 mechanic was taken to hospital with a suspected broken leg after being clipped by a car in the pit lane at the end of the opening Canadian Grand Prix practice.

Television images showed an ambulance outside the team's garage with the mechanic lying on the ground while a stretcher was prepared.

One team member told Reuters the mechanic had been taken to hospital in Montreal.

Pedro de La Rosa was 20th on the timesheets for HRT, who have yet to score a point since their debut in 2010 and are routinely lapped by the frontrunners.

De la Rosa's team mate Narain Karthikeyan was 22nd.
