I'd guess because the track is still wide enough for slower teams to jump to the side, and HRT did participate in all practice sessions and De La Rosa did post a quicker time to prove the car is capable to reach within 107%.
However since 107% rule reintroduced last season, we normally see it being enforced in street circuits like Albert Park and Monaco. But more relaxed in other tracks and even in Singapore. Given the width of the track should be able to cause "minimum" impact to faster cars.
