    F1 Hungary 2019 Highlights:


    F1 Hungary 2019 Mejores On Board:



    El diseño de Hungaroring, con su revirada última curva (14) proporciona sólo una oportunidad legítima de adelantamiento por vuelta, en la primera curva, por lo que una buena posición de clasificación es más importante que nunca.

    El circuito carece de curvas de alta velocidad, lo que en la puesta a punto del coche lleva a montar la carga aerodinámica más alta posible.

    Mientras tanto, la principal preocupación habitual para el equipo técnico del motor, es asegurar una buena refrigeración en unas condiciones por lo general tórridas, y más aún con estos motores híbridos, en los que la gestión del conjunto eléctrico es crítica.

    La altas temperaturas del verano también hacen la vida difícil para los pilotos, que necesitan estar en óptimas condiciones físicas para hacer frente a una carrera que les da muy poco respiro en sus 70 vueltas de distancia.

    Después de Mónaco, Hungaroring tiene la segunda velocidad media más baja de todos los circuitos de la Fórmula Uno. Las curvas son principalmente de media y baja velocidad seguidas en rápida sucesión, y la recta de meta y salida es relativamente corta.

    Puesto que el polvo se acumula continuamente en la pista, los niveles de adherencia tienden a ser bajos al comienzo de cada una de las sesiones de práctica, lo que suele conducir al subviraje del coche.

    El agarre mecánico es un factor importante en un circuito de baja velocidad como este, y los equipos en general, centran la atención para estos ajustes principalmente en el sector medio, con su variedad de combinaciones de curvas. Intentan preparar el auto con la configuración más suave, para mejorar el agarre mecánico. Los pilotos quieren un coche que responda en las secciones de baja velocidad, con una buena tracción en las salidas de las curvas, que normalmente lleva a los equipos a una configuración mecánica típica (más rígido delante / más blando detrás) en términos de puesta a punto. Sin embargo, el desgaste de los neumáticos traseros debe ser controlado muy cuidadosamente, en particular para evitar sobrecargar el compuesto más blando disponible durante el fin de semana.

    Vamos con las previas de los equipos:

    Hungary GP: Preview - Mercedes



    Toto Wolff: Spielberg didn't always yield the best results for us in recent years, so it feels good to head to Hungary with two victories and a lot of points. We put a lot of effort into finding reliability solutions between the races and it was an impressive team effort to deliver them in time. That was echoed by the strong work from the team at the track, all of which ultimately rewarded us with a 1-2 on Sunday.Both drivers did a good job last weekend. Lewis' pole lap in the rain was one of the best I've ever seen and his performance in the race was flawless. Valtteri had a harder time on Saturday, but his damage limitation on Sunday was successful.


    Two wins from two races might sound like the performance picture is clear, but that's far from the truth. We've only raced on a single track so far and it is way too early to make any assumptions. The next race in Hungary will be a different scenario and we're expecting a challenging fight. The Hungaroring has always suited Red Bull and they've shown their strength in the slow corners again this year, so they will be very hard to beat. Given the calendar changes this year, the Hungaroring is set to be the highest-downforce track in 2020, so it will be interesting to see whose aero package delivers the most at this track. The first two races this year have been highly entertaining and I'm looking forward to another exciting race weekend to conclude the first triple-header of the year.


    Fact File



    With the revised 2020 schedule and the circuit's relentless run of corners, the Hungaroring looks set to be the highest downforce track on the calendar.


    Because of the track's high-downforce nature, its maximum speed - 318 km/h - is one of the lowest in F1.

    F1 cars only spend around 10 seconds going in a straight line during a lap in Hungary, with the remaining 65 seconds or so spent cornering.


    The Hungaroring only has 14 classified corners but is known for its constant cornering because many of its corners are long, low-speed or both. But in terms of the number of corners, only Monza and Spielberg have fewer.


    Despite the Hungaroring having one of the shortest start/finish straights, the track has the fifth-longest run to Turn 1 from pole position - due to the grid being positioned very close to the exit of the final corner. Only Monza, Barcelona, Mexico City and Sochi have longer runs to Turn 1.


    The circuit is one of the toughest for brake cooling, in part due to the lack of straights and often made worse by cars being stuck in traffic.


    Just 65% of the lap distance at the Hungaroring is taken at full throttle, one of the lowest figures in F1. Singapore and Monaco are the only F1 venues with lower percentages.


    The air and track temperatures experienced at the Hungarian Grand Prix are typically some of the highest of the season, with an average air temperature of 30°C and average track temperature of 49°C.


    The average lateral G experienced during the course of the lap is one of the highest in F1, due to the grip levels from the new tarmac, long corners, lack of straights and high downforce levels.


    The Hungaroring's kerbs are some of the most severe in F1 for the cars, although not to the same level as the kerbs in Austria. The spacing, height and speed at which drivers go over kerbs are all important factors. While the kerbs in Hungary are harsh, they are generally taken at slower speeds than in Spielberg.


    The track features many long corners, some of which are 180 degrees or more, which impacts the suspension set-up. The majority of corners in Hungary are taken in "steady state", which is where the length of the corner allows the car to settle and stay in a rolled condition for a long period of time. A "transient state" means the opposite and is seen in corners requiring quick changes of direction. In Budapest, "steady state" is more important and the suspension can be tuned to be better suited to this.


    The track layout of the Hungaroring makes overtaking notoriously difficult, especially in places without DRS. There was just one non-DRS overtake in 2019, the lowest figure of any race from last year, and 26 using DRS.

    Lewis has won at the Hungarian Grand Prix seven times, making the Hungaroring his joint-most successful track - sharing the accolade with the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal.


    The 2009 Hungarian Grand Prix was the first race in F1 history to be won by a hybrid car. Back then, using the Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) was optional and the opening races were won by cars with conventional engines. However, Mercedes-Benz had developed a hybrid system run by McLaren-Mercedes in 2009. So, when Lewis won the Hungarian Grand Prix on 26 July, it was the first ever victory for a hybrid Formula One car.
    Alonso carried his Renault to third place in Singapore. After Vettel and Rosberg wrecked their own races, he seized a podium from a car that did not deserve it.

    That is the difference between the great and the merely good.

    Hungary GP: Preview - Red Bull

    After two races at the same circuit, are you looking forward to going to a new track?



    Max Verstappen
    :
    Yes, I think two weeks driving on the same track is enough but Red Bull did make a great event for us. It was nice to have the opportunity to drive at the same track twice and be able to test different set-ups on the cars and correlate the data from back to back races, but I think we are all ready for a new track now. After such a tough first weekend it was good to be on the podium on Sunday and it was nice to have some sort of reward for the Team. Now I'm just looking ahead to this weekend as Hungary is a really fun track to drive with these high downforce cars so let's see what we can do.


    Looking ahead, what are your main focuses for the race this weekend?


    MV:
    I will of course try to do the best that I can and see how competitive we are again against Mercedes, and of course the others. The track is more technical than Austria. There are more corners and if you get one corner wrong, you are not well positioned for the next one, especially in sector two. So you really have to work hard on the car set-up, that is always key. We need a really stable balance, but of course a car that responds well going into corners.


    The Team have won the fastest pit stop twice now, is it good to see the crew come back so strong?


    MV:
    Yes, it is great to see, it's always nice when the guys can give me such a fast pit stop. I mean I like to see the guys during the race but of course I want to get away from them as fast as possible in the pit stop! They all work super hard and I think that shows every Sunday.


    After two races at the same circuit, are you looking forward to going to a new track?


    Alex Albon:
    Hungary is a nice track. It's a drivers' circuit so we all enjoy coming here. This weekend the focus is a bit more on qualifying as it isn't as easy to overtake here as it is at the Red Bull Ring. We learned a few lessons between races one and two, we understand the car a lot better now and we're using that to push forward.


    The season got off to a busy start with back to back races. How would you compare races one and two?


    AA:
    I'd say race one was a bit better than race two. We optimised the package better in race one, but we had a better car in race two, so it's more or less about working on that car from race two and getting it into a good window. I had to manage the early race pace on the soft tyre last weekend due to concerns over blistering but on the medium the balance was much better. There's obviously a gap to Mercedes but we're probably going to a circuit that suits us more than the Red Bull Ring so with that in mind we're pretty hopeful.


    In race two you equalled your career best finish with P4 and took a solid amount of points for the Team. What are your
    expectations for Hungary?


    AA:
    The main thing is to close the gap to Mercedes. We will have to wait and see where we are in FP1 but I think the pecking order in the championship is maybe a bit different to what was expected and the Racing Point is probably up there. We've got to see what we can do. As always, the goal is to focus on ourselves and the end product is the result of that hard work. It's all about optimising what we've got and seeing how that compares to the rest of the field.


    Christian Horner: We are now two-thirds into the first triple-header of the season and boosted by a much-improved result at the Styrian Grand Prix. Max picked up the Team's first podium of 2020, while Alex finished fourth.

    It was good to be back on the podium, especially coming off the back of what was a difficult result to take, at the Austrian Grand Prix.


    It was nice to see Max challenge for pole in a wet qualifying session. This was a new benchmark for us to understand as nobody has done any wet running this year.


    Max got every last bit out of the car on Sunday, doing what he does best and fighting right until the final stages of the race.


    We tried to retain track position early on against Bottas and tough-it-out in the second half of the race but he had the advantage of fresher tyres in the latter part of the race.


    We have no regrets about the strategy and Max fully understood what we were doing as he explained in his post-race media.


    I was asked some questions about Alex's early race pace, but let's remember that he came off the back of a strong weekend the previous week where he was challenging Lewis for victory. It just shows how people have a short memory in Formula One and they're quick to forget things.


    During his first stint on the soft tyre, we were concerned about potential blistering on the front right, so he was managing his pace to ensure he was able to achieve the target lap for his pit stop.


    This meant he gave away significant pace to the cars ahead, but as soon as he changed to the medium compound, he was back on pace.


    If you look at the analysis, Alex was within a tenth of Bottas, who was chasing Max. He also did a very good job in holding off a very fast Sergio Perez at the end of the race.


    Alex's feedback is very good and he and Max work well together which allows us to try different things on each car and make accurate comparisons, which is what we did in Austria.


    Alex is improving with experience, he has a good feel for what the car is doing and that's very encouraging. We all want him to succeed and let's not forget he's only done 11 races with the Team whilst Max is in his sixth season.


    Alex has taken a lot of lessons out of Sunday's performance, so I don't think he should be down in any way because he actually equalled his best race result in Formula 1 and scored the Team a solid amount of championship points.


    With two races under our belt, we now have a clearer idea of the areas on the car we need to improve upon. The races are coming thick and fast and the production effort in the factory is astounding.


    The results and feedback from the opening two races have allowed us to target specific areas and tailor the updates accordingly.


    It is a very busy time in the factory and everybody is fully motivated in spite of Mercedes looking so strong in the opening races. Hopefully we will give them a harder fight in some of the upcoming races.


    The final race in the opening triple-header is in Hungary this weekend. But it does come with added complications for citizens from the UK and some non-EU citizens.

    Strict rules mean they cannot leave the hotel other than to go to the track or airport.


    I have to admit that it is not something that was totally unexpected, given the current circumstances. The Team have been excellent in following the social distancing measures, with regular COVID-19 testing and practising PPE protocols.


    First and foremost, we are going to Budapest to go racing. We normally spend so much time at the track that when we get back to the hotel, there is not time to go out and explore the city anyway.


    Our focus will be on what's happening on track and not about the inconvenience of being confined to a hotel room. We know we have a gap to close to fight for this championship and that is what we will do.


    These last few weeks have been busy for our Race Team, as well as back at the factory so I thank everyone for their continued dedication and teamwork.


    This is a busy spell for us with nine races in 11 weeks and the safety and welfare of our staff is paramount.

    I'm looking forward to Hungary. It is a different and slightly more technical circuit to the Red Bull Ring and offers us another great opportunity.


    Mercedes
    have shown some great form here in recent years but last year, Max scored our first pole at the track using Honda power, so it will be another interesting weekend and we are fully focused on the task in hand.
    Alonso carried his Renault to third place in Singapore. After Vettel and Rosberg wrecked their own races, he seized a podium from a car that did not deserve it.

    That is the difference between the great and the merely good.

    Hungary GP: Preview - Ferrari

    Sunday sees the 35th edition of the Hungarian Grand Prix which normally signals the start of the summer break. But this year, just one week on and it will be time for another triple header in this unusual season, with two races in the UK followed by one in Spain. The Hungarian Grand Prix has always been held at the Hungaroring, on the outskirts of Budapest. The track has undergone a few modifications and Scuderia Ferrari has won here seven times, the first courtesy of Nigel Mansell in 1989, when the Englishman came back from 12th on the grid, overtaking Ayrton Senna when the Brazilian hesitated before lapping Stefan Johansson in the Onyx.




    The race first appeared on the calendar in 1986 when the idea of holding a race behind the iron curtain while the cold war was still real, caused quite a stir, especially in the wake of the boycott and counter-boycott of the 1980 Moscow Olympics and those in Los Angeles in 1984. But the gamble paid off and its been a fixture on the calendar ever since.


    The track isn't used much and its rural setting means it's usually pretty dirty on Friday. The Hungaroring is 4.381 kilometres long and has 14 corners, 8 right and 6 left. The start-finish line is on the longest straight which provides overtaking opportunities into turn 1, a downhill right hander. After a few hundred metres, turn 2 is also downhill, but to the left and leads immediately into turn 3, again downhill. Next is another fast section, climbing up to turn 4 to the left.

    Then it gets twisty, with a slow chicane and two final hairpins, turn 13 to the left and a final right hander onto the straight.


    After Charles Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel collided at Turn 3 on the opening lap of the Styrian Grand Prix, both men are keen to get back on track to put it all behind them and work with the team to try and improve the performance of the SF1000.


    Mattia Binotto Team Principal:
    "Hungary brings the curtain down on the first triple-header in this very compressed season. The Hungaroring is a very different track to Spielberg in Austria, which hosted the first two races. It will be interesting therefore to see how the cars behave on a track that requires maximum aerodynamic downforce. Given that overtaking in Hungary, unlike Austria, is usually a rare occurrence, it means that tyre management over a single lap and being well prepared for qualifying will be of vital importance.


    "We know that the performance level of our car has not matched our expectations, nor that of our fans, but we are working flat out on every area to improve as quickly as possible.


    "Our aim this weekend is simple and straightforward: to score as many points as possible. To do that, we must work perfectly in every area, from the drivers, to car preparation to how we operate on track, to reliability."


    Sebastian Vettel
    :
    "After the poor showing last weekend in Spielberg it's good that I can get straight back on track.


    "The Hungaroring is quite a physically demanding circuit for the driver, because with hardly any straights. In fact there are so many corners and usually, the Grand Prix is held at a very hot time of year.


    "It's also a track that attracts a lot of Ferrari fans and supporters from Germany too, so it will be very strange racing without seeing them cheering in the grandstands."


    Charles Leclerc
    :
    "I'm really looking forward to being back in the car. I like the Hungaroring, which is a very technical circuit, featuring several tricky areas where you pay for the slightest mistake with lap time. That's why, especially in qualifying, you have to put together the perfect lap.


    "Budapest is one of my favourite stops on the calendar, because the city is so beautiful and we usually meet lots of enthusiastic fans there. It will be a bit different this time and we will do our best to put on a good show for them."
    Alonso carried his Renault to third place in Singapore. After Vettel and Rosberg wrecked their own races, he seized a podium from a car that did not deserve it.

After two weeks at the same circuit we need to reset and work hard to continue building on these solid results. This track has more slower speed corners and is much tighter than in Austria. It should give us a new benchmark on the performance of the car. I've driven on this track a few times throughout my career, including at my first-ever F1 test back in 2017, so I've got good memories. I'm hoping that experience will help me to hit the ground running on Friday.


    "We know we can't get ahead of ourselves only two races into the season. It's been a great start but now we need to try and maintain our momentum and fight for the best possible points."


    Carlos Sainz
    :
    "After a Styrian GP of mixed feelings, with a great Saturday and a very frustrating race on Sunday, I've spent a couple more days in Austria training and recharging batteries before the last grand prix of this first triple-header.

    I head to Hungary with the confidence of knowing that, despite the last race result, we're all working in the right direction at McLaren and I feel positive after a promising start to the season.


    "The Hungaroring, however, poses a different challenge to what we've faced for the past two weeks in Austria, so we must be prepared. I had a great race there last season finishing P5 and, as always, I'm looking to build on that and keep improving."


    Piers Thynne, Production Director:
    "It's always a challenge going into a triple-header, even more so early in the season with what is essentially a brand-new car. The production team back at the MTC has done an excellent job in ensuring we have all the parts we need for the three-week period while maintaining high build quality.


    "Over the two weekends in Austria we have been able to contain issues and maintain good reliability, but we can never let our guard down. It's a testament to the hard work put in by the team to achieve this level of reliability, as well as the excellent driving of Lando and Carlos to minimise the strain on spare parts.


    "As the team head to Hungary, we find ourselves in a good position to push again. The Hungaroring brings a set of different challenges compared to those found in Austria, but we'll be prepared. Due to the high downforce levels needed at the tight, twisty and relatively slow-speed track in Hungary, we expect to trim the car very differently compared to the fast and flowing circuit in Austria, and this race will also give us a new test of reliability.


    "Looking beyond the Hungarian GP, our attention turns to the next triple-header as we head to both grands prix at Silverstone and Barcelona. As always, we're looking to improve the car at every opportunity, and our focus will start to shift further towards car updates and away from our provision of spares. The compressed nature of this season will require teams to delicately balance resources between car upgrades and spare parts, but it's an exciting challenge and one we're ready to take on."
    Alonso carried his Renault to third place in Singapore. After Vettel and Rosberg wrecked their own races, he seized a podium from a car that did not deserve it.

    That is the difference between the great and the merely good.

    Hungary GP: Preview - Racing Point

    The Hungaroring is one of the lowest speed circuits on the Formula 1 calendar. While the start / finish line is 800m long, the second sector includes a succession of eight corners across the speed range that challenge both the car and driver. Maintaining rhythm is key to a strong lap here.



    Overtaking at the Hungaroring is a tricky proposition - but moves can be made at a couple of corners if a driver is willing to wait until the last moment to hit the brakes. Keep an eye on Turn 1 for the best of the action, with drivers able to use the DRS effect to close up on their rivals before making a move.


    Dealing with soaring temperatures is one of the key challenges in Budapest. Not only do the drivers have to nurse the tyres on what is a very intensive circuit for the tyres but the track's intense physicality in such heat tests their fitness levels to the limit.


    Tyre wear and overtaking challenges combine to make strategy crucial in Budapest. The track layout leads the teams to look for strategies which reduce the chance of being caught behind slower cars.


    Formula 1 heads to only its second venue of the 2020 campaign in Hungary, having opened with a double-header in Austria. This is more than just a change of scenery, with the tight and twisty layout of the Hungaroring being a contrast to the high-speed nature of the Red Bull Ring.


    How would you sum up the Hungaroring in a sentence?


    Lance Stroll
    :
    "I would say it's like a mini-Monaco - but without the barriers."

    How much do you enjoy visiting Budapest?

    LS:
    "It's a great city - one of my favourites, actually. It's a beautiful place. There's no 'end of term' summer break feeling this year - but we've got the buzz of finally getting back to racing instead, which is even better!"


    What are the biggest challenges at the Hungaroring?


    LS:
    "Budapest in the middle of summer is always a scorcher. There's high track temperatures and big demands on the tyres - especially with so many low-speed traction zones. Inside the car you're always busy. It's not as intense as a street circuit, but it's only really the pit straight where you get a moment to catch your breath. All the corners flow into the next one so it's really hard to find your rhythm early in the weekend."

    How much do you enjoy racing in Hungary?

    Sergio Perez
    :
    "I like the layout of the lap - but I've never had much luck there. It's tight, twisty and usually makes for an interesting race, with the first sector giving us some overtaking opportunities. To throw it up the inside into Turn 1, you need to be really confident on the brakes. With a big run-off area, drivers are willing to take more risks there."


    What's the key to a great lap at the Hungaroring?


    SP:
    "We call it a technical track because it's not easy to hook up a clean lap. It's always dirty off-line and any mistakes in the low and medium speed corners are costly. Keeping your momentum is everything - more than at most other tracks."

    What's your top racing memory from Hungary?

    SP:
    "I would say it was in 2013, racing with McLaren. It was a difficult car and not really a Q3 contender in Hungary - but I was able to put together a really strong lap to make it into Q3, qualifying ninth. And I then scored points in the race to complete a good weekend."

    Hungary GP: Preview - Haas

    Following on from back-to-back events in Austria the Formula One World Championship is heading across the border to Hungary for the third round of the 2020 season.



    The Hungaroring, located on the outside of Hungary's capital Budapest, has been hosting Formula One events since 1986, when the purpose-built venue brought the championship under the Iron Curtain for the first time. It quickly emerged as a popular race venue, courtesy of its close proximity to the vibrant and historic Budapest, with its gothic architecture, social ruin bars, and verdant parks, where East meets West across the Danube River.


    Located in a natural valley, the technical 4.381km Hungaroring circuit poses a challenge for teams and drivers alike, with 14 tricky turns, and little in the way of run-off. Overtaking is often at a premium at the Hungaroring, placing an extra importance on grid position, while the intensely hot Hungarian summers means the tires can be severely punished. Several medium and high-speed corners mean the drivers also face a test of their endurance, particularly at the end of a triple-header of races, only the second time in history that there has been three grands prix in as many weeks.


    After back-to-back races in Austria the Haas F1 Team and drivers Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen are keen to assess its VF-20 at an entirely different race track, and continue building on the lessons that were learned across the past two weekends.


    Grosjean has race-winning experience at the Hungaroring in junior categories and in his first full-time Formula One campaign in 2012 recorded a podium finish, classifying third. Magnussen registered a standout seventh in 2018, with Grosjean 10th, ensuring both Haas F1 Team racers brought home points. The Hungaroring was less kind the following year and thus Haas F1 Team is keen to make amends as Formula One brings its opening trio of races to a close.


    The team brought both cars home to the checkered flag at the Styrian Grand Prix after a disappointing double DNF the weekend before. What positives can you extract from Sunday's race result and what, if any changes were made to deliver a stronger performance?


    Guenther Steiner:
    "Obviously the Austrian Grand Prix was a disappointment for us with having two cars not finishing. Coming back to the same place for the Styrian Grand Prix, this time we were able to finish and fight a little bit with our opponents - not in the right place, but at least it's better than last year. We need to get better in order to fight for points. It's a start and hopefully going forward we can get into that fight."


    Technical gremlins have impacted both Friday practice sessions this season with Grosjean losing an FP1 for the Austrian Grand Prix and Magnussen missing out on FP1 at the Styrian Grand Prix. How much of an impact does that have in terms of the overall weekend and what measures, if any, can be implemented to minimize the risk?


    GS:
    "After four months of not driving a Formula One car, it's obviously not good not going out in FP1, but also missing a complete session - it's a disappointment. We always try to do our best, I mean - for sure, we always try to evaluate what happened, but you can never exclude an issue. We just need to keep our heads down, try to do better every time, and try not to make any mistakes from our side."


    Have you had to re-evaluate the team's goals or objectives for the season based on performances to-date?


    GS:
    "Not really because we didn't have objectives when we started off as we didn't know where we were. Now we roughly know where we are. Obviously, we're not on the top of the mid-field, we're in the second part, we just need to get better as we go along and get more out of the car. Hopefully some of the tracks coming, they'll help us as they're a little less power sensitive."


    Hungary represents the third and final leg of the opening triple-header to start the delayed 2020 season. Knowing there are at least two more triple-header stints to come on the calendar, what's your take on the flow of back-to-back race weekends - where do the challenges lie, or is it a benefit to simply keep the momentum going and continue racing?


    GS:
    "Absolutely - keeping momentum going and go racing, that is what we need to do. I think everyone on the team is very motivated and very happy that we're back racing. For sure by the third triple-header it'll be a little bit old, and people will be tired, but at least in the next triple-header some of the team can go home in-between - that's not been possible between the Austrian and Hungarian events. It's very demanding on the guys, on everybody, but we were not doing a lot for four months at the beginning of the season. In the end though, I think we're all happy to be here and go racing."


    GS:
    Last week saw F1 announce two additional race dates, Mugello and Sochi. What's your take on how the revised 2020 calendar is coming together and how are teams addressing the element of 'the unknown' as the final calendar is yet to be determined?

    "It's good to see more of the calendar come together but there's still about two months missing I'd say. I think we'll get the October calendar pretty soon. The unknown is not fantastic, but the picture is getting clearer and clearer. The biggest thing is financially we don't know what we're getting, and we don't know what we're going to spend. It's all a little bit of a guess at the moment, but it is what it is. I think it's very difficult for Formula One to get assurances from governments that races can be held going into the later part of the year - the pandemic is not over; it changes all the time. We're just dealing with it on a day-to-day basis and hopefully we get all the details soon."


    You saw the checkered flag for the first time this season at the Styrian Grand Prix finishing P13. Specifically, what areas of the car had improved in race trim compared to what you experienced the week before in the Austrian Grand Prix?


    Romain Grosjean
    :
    "Compared to last week, I think the cooler track temperatures helped us to get the temperature of the car under control. We still have some work to do on that point, but obviously it was better. We also learned from the set-ups, we changed things from the first week to improve.

    The car behaved okay for the race. We're still not as fast as we want to be, but we've made some good progress. We now have a solid base from which to start working on for Hungary."


    The Hungaroring is another relatively short track, not too dissimilar from the Red Bull Ring. What are the main characteristics of the circuit and what's the key to a good run there - both in qualifying and then in the race? What do you need from the car in order to be competitive?


    RG:
    "Yes, it's a short circuit, but it's different in the way that the straight-line is much less important. You can run maximum downforce on the car - that should help the characteristics of the VF-20. You need good tire management over your qualifying run and for the race as well. It's normally very hot in Hungary at this time of the year. You need to have a car you can trust going into all those fast corners through the middle sector. The last two corners are also very important in order to get a good lap time. That's actually where I lost pole position back in 2012, I didn't go as fast as I should have on the last two turns - that's where you can gain some good time."


    You have a mixed history at the Hungaroring in Formula One - tending to either score points (including a third-place podium in 2012) or DNF. Do you think about that history and those results when you start preparing for the weekend or is it a clean-slate each time?


    RG:
    "For me, Hungary holds two good memories. Obviously, there's my first time being on the front-row in qualifying from 2012 - my best qualifying slot to-date. Then in 2013 I should have won the race, but I had a couple of drive-through penalties, but I still finished sixth despite the 50-second penalty. I got home and the next morning my son, Sacha, was born. Hungary's normally the time of year we celebrate my first son's birthday. I love the atmosphere there, love the fans, love the circuit. It can be hard on you, it's a tough one, as I said, it's very hot normally. But let's see where we can go this weekend."

    RG:
    "I think you can argue a couple of different ways. It's good to keep the momentum going, to keep that flow, but it's also hard on the body for everyone. The key is to rest well between races and make sure you come back stronger. I've said it a few times, but I really like the calendar. I like the fact that we're staying a bit more in Europe this year. I think we can have fun and it's going to be exciting as it continues."


    You saw the checkered flag for the first time this season at the Styrian Grand Prix finishing P12. Specifically, what areas of the car had improved in race trim compared to what you experienced the week before in the Austrian Grand Prix?


    Kevin Magnussen
    :
    "I think the race performance, from the Austrian to the Styrian Grand Prix, was more or less the same. That was good as the car was actually pretty strong in race condition at the Austrian Grand Prix. But obviously we had the brake problem that hindered our performance there - which we didn't then have as bad at the Styrian Grand Prix. I think generally the car is very good in race conditions, especially compared to qualifying trim. Qualifying is really where we need to focus because the race performance is decent."

    KM:
    "The only real similarity is the length of the lap, I don't think they have a lot else in common. The Hungaroring is a much lower speed track, there's less straight-line speed there meaning the sensitivity there on a lap time is less. Hopefully that can be a good thing for us as we saw at the Red Bull Ring our straight-line speed isn't the strongest."


    You've had just one points scoring finish in five starts at the Hungarian Grand Prix - a seventh place effort with Haas in 2018. How would you categorize your relationship with the Hungaroring, and do you think about those results when you start preparing for the weekend?


    KM:
    "To me, it doesn't mean anything what I've done in the past - whether I've had good results or not. There's always an opportunity for a good result no matter what. I don't see it like I have a particular weakness in Hungary. In the past, before Formula One, the Hungaroring has been very good to me. I've won races there and been successful. Just because I haven't had good fortune there in Formula One, it doesn't mean there's any particular weakness there. I think we have a better chance of scoring points in Hungary than we did at the Red Bull Ring - even though that track has been very good to us in the past with Haas."

    KM:
    "I think it's only a positive. I only have good things to say about these triple-headers. Of course, if we had a full season of triple-headers from March to December, that would be pretty stressful. But as we find ourselves in this situation where the first half of the season has been canceled, I think it's only good we get as many races in as possible. The good thing about it is you get really fit. You're driving the car all the time, every week, and your neck gets very strong. You're getting accustomed to driving the car a lot which you don't normally get the chance to. Your general fitness level is very good when you don't drive the car, you're in the gym working out, but your racing fitness becomes much better when you're driving the car - so that's the positive. I've missed driving the car, I've missed racing, so at the moment I can't get enough."

    Hungary GP: Preview - Williams

    Following the restart of the 2020 FIA Formula One World Championship in Austria, the team makes its way across the border for the final leg in the opening triple header at the Hungaroring in Budapest. Once again, the event will be held behind closed doors to ensure the safety of all involved.



    Whilst being one of the shorter tracks on the calendar, the Hungaroring's undulations and lack of straights ensure that it's key for drivers to find a good rhythm in order to set a quick lap time. Many relish this challenge and it is no surprise that the Hungarian Grand Prix is a popular race on the Formula One calendar.


    Dave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance:
    Following two weekends in the Austrian countryside, we have relocated 350km east to the historic city of Budapest. The circuit layout and characteristics of the Hungaroring are as different from the Red Bull Ring as the scenery is between Budapest and the Styrian Mountains. The circuit here demands high levels of downforce, excellent ride characteristics and a car balance that offers the driver precision in a range of corner types. Overtaking is difficult and there is consequently a greater emphasis on qualifying performance.


    Although Pirelli bring the same compound selection to this event that they made available in both Austrian rounds, the behaviour could be quite different here, especially if the track is very hot.


    Last year George enjoyed one of his best qualifying results of the year at this event and it is a circuit that he enjoys and excels at. Nicholas too has a lot of experience here and he understands how the car needs adjusting to suit the particular demands of the Hungaroring.


    Back to back races in Austria has allowed us to learn quite quickly about the FW43 and to develop rapid solutions to some of the minor issues we uncovered a fortnight ago. Our job this weekend is to apply that knowledge to a new venue and to continue to push every aspect of the car's performance.


    George Russell
    :
    I am really looking forward to Hungary. I think the circuit characteristics will suit our car better than Austria did. We have got a bit of work to do off the back of the race in Austria, as our race pace wasn't as strong as our qualifying pace, so we need to understand why. Nevertheless, Hungary is a great track, it is one of my favourites and it will be fun to drive around that circuit again.


    Nicholas Latifi
    :
    I am excited to get back going straight away. Personally, I am a fan of the back-to-back races, especially as I am in a period of learning and the more information that I can take on is just going to accelerate that. Although triple headers can seem quite a lot, for me it's ideal. Budapest is a track that has never been one of my favourites on the calendar, but I have had some of my better races there in the past, so I'm looking forward to hopefully continuing that trend. The track is tight and twisty with not a lot of room to rest, it is very demanding on both the driver, but also the car. It will be important to get the right balance. This circuit was quite strong for the team last year, so that bodes well.

    Hungary GP: Preview - Renault

    Daniel Ricciardo narrowly missed out on a top six finish in a tight Styrian Grand Prix at the weekend. Focus now turns to the fast and flowing Hungaroring, a circuit the Australian relishes, as he aims for a better points reward.



    How much do you enjoy racing at the Hungaroring?


    Daniel Ricciardo
    :
    I can't wait to get back to Budapest. I'm glad it's on the revised calendar as it's one of my favourite circuits. I'm pumped to have a good one this time around and trying this year's car on a high-downforce circuit for the first time. I'm quite enjoying these back-to-back races and, since we've been competitive in Austria, I know we're going to have a chance in Hungary for a good result.


    Where are the key areas of a lap there?


    DR:
    It's a track with its own challenges. It's fast, tight, but that doesn't mean overtaking isn't possible. It's quite a busy lap at the wheel, especially the middle sector with corners coming quite quickly one after the other. It's a good drivers' track and a great challenge. Even physically, it's quite hard, especially with the heat.


    What are your thoughts after the Styrian Grand Prix?


    DR:
    I think it's a little frustrating as we know more points were there for the taking. We held onto sixth for so long and two laps from the end it came undone. It was a positive race with a decent start and solid pace in general. There are positives from it and we showed the speed for a better result. We have another chance this weekend; we're moving in the right direction and the car has taken a step forward. We just need to extract the most from it and show where we deserve to be in the standings.


    Esteban Ocon
    's Styrian Grand Prix may have ended early, but the French driver heads to Hungary with confidence as he gears up to tackle his favourite circuit on the 2020 calendar.


    How much do you enjoy racing in Hungary?


    Esteban Ocon
    :
    I definitely love Budapest and it's actually one of my favourite tracks. It's fantastic to drive, especially when you get the car set up to how you want it. I have some really good memories there from Formula 3, when I took three pole positions and won two of the three races. I've also been confident there in Formula 1 but maybe without the results to show for it. We showed good pace in Austria this year and hopefully we can take that forward to Hungary. We're getting better but we know it's points on the board that counts.


    What should you look out for on a lap there?


    EO:
    I love the flow of the Hungaroring; it's twisty and fast and just a lot of fun. The first sector contains the long straight into Turn 1 with overtaking opportunities and then again at Turn 2 where you can also make a pass. Turn 4 is quick and blind but really nice when you get it right. The middle sector is very much medium to fast corners with the chicane the only exception. You need to find a good flow through there and piece all the corners together to make up lap-time. The tricky part of the lap is the final couple of corners. The tyres get very hot, meaning less grip, so you have to be quite mindful there.


    How do you aim to bounce back after last weekend's retirement?


    EO:
    We're all very disappointed with what happened in the race. It took a big team effort on Saturday to put ourselves in a good position and we were running in a decent place during the race. It's a shame but that's motorsport sometimes. With the races coming one after the other, it does bring an immediate opportunity to comeback stronger and do our best for a good result. I'm confident we can do that.


    The Styrian Grand Prix left the team with mixed feelings after a strong Saturday showing before leaving points on the table on Sunday. Focus turns to the non-stop flow of the Hungaroring for the third race in a triple-header as Chief Race Engineer Ciaron Pilbeam looks ahead to this weekend's race.


    What are the main considerations for the Hungaroring?


    Ciaron Pilbeam:
    The Hungaroring has a lot of corners and not many straights, which makes it a high-downforce circuit where most teams will run maximum downforce. There are not many very low speed corners, and the middle sector in particular is mainly medium speed where finding a flow is quite important. Because of this circuit layout tyre overheating can be an issue, especially at the rear. Even in qualifying rear overheating in the last few corners can be a problem, and sometimes you have to compromise the car balance to find the best overall lap time.


    It's very difficult to overtake at the Hungaroring with Turn 1 probably the best chance to make a move. It can be a struggle to get past someone even if you're quicker and that places an emphasis on having a strong qualifying performance.


    What kind of performance are we expecting?


    CP:
    We're encouraged from what we have seen from the car so far this year. It has been consistently better in Barcelona and Austria, the two circuits we've been at this season. I don't think these improvements are circuit specific, and we would expect this progression to carry over to other circuits. It can be hot in central Europe at this time of year, especially in Budapest, so we may need to run more cooling on the car, although the weather forecast at the moment is for a mainly cool weekend with the possibility of some rain.


    How does the team reflect on the Styrian Grand Prix?


    CP:
    The Styrian Grand Prix was a mixed weekend for us. Our cars qualified well in the wet session on Saturday and were looking good to capitalise on that in the race on Sunday. However, we did not score the points that we could have, and that is the ultimate measure of our performance, so we cannot be satisfied. Nevertheless, the car has clearly improved and showed good pace all weekend in both wet and dry conditions at a circuit where we have struggled in the past, so we can be optimistic about the coming races.

    Hungary GP: Preview - AlphaTauri

    Pierre Gasly: "I could sum up my two weekends in Austria as Race 1: a good result to finish seventh and score points, and Race 2: it was a great qualifying to make it to Q3 and seventh on the grid, but a disappointing result. Right after the start, I got hit and the damage to the floor and other parts meant I could not run at the pace we had. At least Daniil picked up a point, although I had expected to do better from seventh on the grid.



    "Overall, I got a positive feeling after these two opening races, however, we still have a lot of work to do if we want to finish in the top ten on a regular basis. It wasn't a bad start to the season and we already saw some signs of progress from the first to the second race. We had a new front wing for the Styrian GP and I think that helped a lot in terms of performance. Now we must continue to work hard and move in the right direction. The team's development programme should produce something positive in the next few weeks to help us fight our competitors in the midfield.


    "As for the Paddock life, it was an unusual experience racing in these special conditions. You get around the paddock much quicker, but the biggest difference is the lack of spectators, so it's less lively and there's not much of a buzz around the place. To be honest, for the drivers, it's not that bad having fewer people in the paddock because we have more free time. We get more time to rest so we have more energy when it's time to drive. But in terms of atmosphere, the fact there's no one around means it's not the same.


    "Now we come to Hungary. People say it's all about Saturday qualifying, which is partly true, but it's not like Monaco, in that there are some places where you can overtake at the Hungaroring. Apart from that, it's one of my favourite tracks and I love racing there. You can get into a really nice rhythm at this track, so it's one of the highlights of the season for me. It's a big change from Austria in terms of the set-up you need on the car, so we will have to see how we go on a more twisty track layout with fewer straights, I think it might suit us better."


    Daniil Kvyat
    :
    "The past two weeks in Austria brought mixed emotions. After the first race, I was disappointed with myself as I could have brought home some big points. However, I had to immediately leave my frustration behind as the turnaround between Grands Prix was fast. Then for the second race, we had a lot of potential to get into Q3 on Saturday, but I got blocked on track and missed out on that. It meant the race was very challenging starting that far back, but I'm happy with how I managed and how the team handled the race. Even though we lacked a bit of pace, we defended well and kept cool heads and managed to bring home a point under difficult circumstances. So I was quite happy to conclude that day at the office with a point.


    "We were able to make some progress on the car between the two races, but it can be hard to see that, especially when everyone is doing the same and you are on the same track again just a few days later. We lacked some pace in the second race, but I felt as though I'd squeezed everything I could out of the car, which was pleasing from a driving point of view.


    "I'm not sure what we can expect this weekend in Hungary. We will have to go there and see how the car behaves on that kind of track on Friday, as it's very different to the Red Bull Ring. I hope we will have a bit more performance and once again score points.


    "Life at the track has certainly been different as you're not allowed to do much outside of your own bubble. With what's been happening, it's been a lonely world for quite a while now and this has just made it a little bit lonelier! But I'm not complaining, because every time I get to drive the car I really enjoy it. It's cool, we are very focused on the actual racing and I think that's not bad at all. Of course, it means that on Sunday night after a race, you just have a quiet evening. But that's no bad thing when we have race after race, so it's important to keep a good rhythm."
    Alonso carried his Renault to third place in Singapore. After Vettel and Rosberg wrecked their own races, he seized a podium from a car that did not deserve it.

    That is the difference between the great and the merely good.

    Hungary GP: Preview - Alfa Romeo

    It's race week... again! Our busy summer of racing continues this weekend with the Hungarian Grand Prix, the final event of the triple header of races that kick-started the 2020 season. After two events on the fast layout of Austria, we head to Budapest for something at the other end of the scale - the tight and twisty Hungaroring.



    Once famously described as "Monaco without the walls" (and the yachts, one may add), this track, first added to the F1 calendar in 1986, has often produced chaotic races and surprise results; usually placed just before summer shutdown in the baking heat of early August, it's a technical track with corners in quick succession, one that offers tough conditions for the drivers, who can only catch a breath - briefly - on the short home straight. It's also a venue that can be challenging for the crew in the garage: even though we are a few weeks earlier than the race's usual slot, the temperature in Budapest is expecting to be soaring and, coming at the end of three weeks of relentless work, it will put a strain on bodies and minds.


    Complicated races, however, are often those which produce opportunities: as such, we will all need to be in tip-top form to make the most of any chance coming our way. The work of understanding and extracting the potential out of the C39 continues, and we have shown in Austria (both weeks) that both our cars can be in contention for the points.

    Robert Kubica, will once again step behind the wheel of the C39 as he takes over Kimi's car during FP1.


    The crowds that welcomed his return to Formula One during a test at the Hungaroring in 2017 won't be there, unfortunately, due to the restrictions imposed by the response to the coronavirus pandemic: but nonetheless, the support of all of Robert's fans, from Poland and beyond, will be felt as if the grandstands were full.


    Having contributed to the team's effort in the second Austrian weekend, Kubica will be called again to provide his feedback and expertise as the team continues the understanding and development of the C39, before Kimi returns to the car for FP2 and the rest of the weekend.


    Frederic Vasseur, Team Principal:
    "Starting the season with a triple header is a challenge, but also an opportunity. It's a chance for us to put into practice all we learnt in the first two races and continue to improve our car, having immediate answers to our questions. We have made steps forward between the first and the second race in Austria and that is the path on which we aim to continue in Budapest. Of course, the track is a completely different kind compared to the Red Bull Ring, so we will need to adapt. We have scored points in one race and finished just outside the top ten in the other: we know that if we do our job right, we can come home with a positive result."


    Kimi Raikkonen
    :
    "Hungary as a track is the opposite of what we experienced in Austria. The track is narrow and slow, so setting up the car will be a completely different challenge compared to the last two weeks. Overtaking here is difficult, so optimising our performance in qualifying will be crucial if we want to make the most of our race pace. The battle in the midfield is quite close, so starting ahead of your rivals is a big advantage we need to take. We had a good race here last summer and hopefully we can come home with another strong result."


    Antonio Giovinazzi
    :
    "It's race number three of the season and I can't wait to be in the car again. We have learnt a lot in the last two races and I feel our performance has increased from the first race to last weekend's, so it is time to turn this progress into points. The track in Budapest should suit us a bit better than Austria, so we can be confident to be in the mix from the start of the weekend to the end."


    Robert Kubica
    :
    "Driving one of these cars is always an incredible feeling and therefore I can't wait for Friday. Emotions aside, we cannot forget how crucial car development is, especially in this compressed 2020 season. The team needs data and feedback and providing as much valuable information is what I am here for. We had a productive weekend last time out and my aim is to help the team make another step forward here in Hungary."

    Hungary GP: Preview - Pirelli

    The delayed 2020 Formula 1 season continues at the Hungaroring with the third race of a triple-header: never seen before in F1, except once in 2018. The tyre selections are the same as the previous two races in Austria: C2 as the P Zero White hard, C3 as the P Zero Yellow medium, and C4 as the P Zero Red soft.



    That's not the only thing remaining the same: this year the drivers will all have the same allocations: two sets of hard tyres, three sets of mediums, and eight sets of soft.


    The C2, C3, and C4 compounds were also chosen in Hungary last year, as they are well-suited to the famously tight and twisty characteristics of the track, as well as to the high temperatures expected this weekend.


    Like the Red Bull Ring, the Hungaroring is a short four-kilometre lap with several changes in elevation. However, it's much slower and more flowing, putting the emphasis on mechanical rather than aerodynamic grip.


    With tyre wear being normally quite low, this has often been a one-stop race. However, last year's winner Lewis Hamilton made a second stop late in the race - with five different tyre strategies seen in the top five. Managing degradation was key to the race.


    One of the reasons for last year's unpredictability was the mixed conditions in free practice, but normally Hungary is one of the hottest races of the year. The lack of airflow due to the nature of the track makes it particularly tough on drivers and cars.


    The tyres too face a challenge at the Hungaroring, due to the non-stop sequence of 14 mainly slow corners, with only one short straight at the start-finish. This means that the tyres are constantly working: some drivers even compare it to their time in karting.


    Mario Isola:
    "For the first time, the Hungaroring is only the third race of the year. With the same tyre nominations and allocations as the first two races - at a venue that is well-established on the F1 calendar - the drivers should have a good idea of what to expect. Last year's race broke a lap record that had stood since 2004, so it will be interesting to see if the times come down further with the 2020 cars, which of course still use our 2019 tyres. The Hungaroring is a very demanding track on both cars and drivers, where managing overheating is always essential, and so it's thrown up a few surprises in the past. It's going to be interesting to see if the disrupted start to the season has any effect on the competitive order this weekend, with some teams bringing new developments as well."

    Batalha entre Racing Point e Renault fora das pistas. Motivo: Os dutos de freios da Racing Point

    Após realizada a etapa da Estíria (No circuito Red Bull Ring) a Renault entrou com um protesto contra a equipe Racing Point. Isso por causa dos dutos de freios da equipe de Lawrence Stroll, que esses dutos seriam copias exatas do W10 (Carro da Mercedes de 2019).


    O Fato é que o RP20 é uma copia do W10. Ou seja, os projetistas da Racing Point copiam fielmente ao carro da Mercedes. Dá para observar que o carro RP20 é bem semelhante ao carro da Mercedes campeão de 2019. No Regulamento, as equipes tem o direito de usar componentes do carro fornecidos por outras equipes. Desde de que fosse listados. O que a Racing Point usa são os motores, suspensão e câmbio.


    Os dutos de freios, porém não teriam sido listados pela Racing Point. Isso fez com que a Renault entrasse com o protesto. Esse protesto acabou sendo aceito pela FIA, entidade que vai ser julgado em breve.


    Se analisamos os dois carros, dá para ver semelhanças entre eles. Não é a primeira vez que os carros são copiados os semelhantes. Basta ver no passado da Formula 1. Nos anos 70, era normal as vendas de carros vencedores (ou nem tão vencedores) para equipes menores. Por exemplo tivemos o carro de 1974 da equipe Mclaren, O M23 foi utilizado durante 4 anos por algumas equipes menores.




    Em 1995, as equipes Benetton e Ligier tiveram exatamente o mesmo carro. Ambas eram comandadas pelo picareta Flavio Briatore, O Diretor da equipe Benetton comprou a Ligier e colocou o Antigo dono da equipe Arrows (Entre 1996 a 2002) Tom Walkinshaw. Ambos eram diretores da Benetton antes.






    Briatore comprou a Ligier para obter os motores Renault para a Benetton e deixou a equipe francesa com os motores Mugen-Honda. Essa manobra tanto em 1995 como hoje é absolutamente imoral, mas acabou passando pelas lentes da FIA sem qualquer punição.




    Nos primeiros anos de Toro Rosso, a equipe usava os chassis do ano anterior da Red Bull. Isso aconteceu em 2006, 2007 e 2008. Assim como aconteceu na Super Aguri que pegou os Chassis da Honda de 2006 e 2007 para usarem na temporada de 2007 e em 2008 (Até que a equipe entrou em falência depois do GP da Espanha de 2008).




    A Haas pega vários componentes do carro da Ferrari para estrear na Formula 1 em 2016. Isso para se que evitasse o vexame de equipes como HRT, Marussia e Caterham na categoria. Agora temos esse caso da Racing Point no começo da temporada.


    Carro da Mercedes de 2019




    Carro da Racing Point de 2020




    A minha opinião é que um duto de freios ser reproduzido fielmente é bem difícil. A Racing Point tem um desenho 90% semelhante ao carro da Mercedes. Uma copia de um carro vencedor por uma equipe de meio de pelotão não será uma garantia de que o carro será vencedor.


    Até aqui em duas corridas, mesmo com uma melhora considerável do desempenho da Racing Point, esse carro não se mostrou vencedor, não fez nem Perez e muito menos Stroll disputar vitórias e nem se quer conseguiram lugares no pódio. O protesto da Renault por causa dos dutos pode ser um protesto justo, mas também pode ser para mascarar o fato da equipe francesa não ter tido competência para fazer um carro competitivo.


    Porém, não acredito que esse protesto vá dar em alguma coisa. Os freios são da temporada passada e mesmo que sejam iguais é preciso provar que isso vai dar em alguma coisa. Se esses freios não foram listados então os projetistas da Racing Point não devem ter feito nada além de tentar reproduzir esse sistema. Isso elimina a possibilidade da equipe ser punida. Agora, se for provado algo de ilegal, a equipe tem que ser punida.


    Não podemos esquecer que na Formula 1, existem vários fotógrafos trabalhando e espiões de outras equipes, que ficam observando outros carros, componentes e inovações aerodinâmicas. Então, existe a possibilidade da peça ser sido só uma copia do Duto de freio da Mercedes W10.



    A Racing Point disse que o carro esta dentro do regulamento e que o modelo RP20 foi aprovado pela FIA para a temporada de 2020. Caso os dutos sejam considerados ilegais a equipe sofrerá punições, até mesmo perder todos os pontos conquistados até agora. Com 22 pontos, a Racing Point esta na 4ªposição no Mundial de Construtores.
