    Buffff...Más salsa todavía con lo de Vettel... ¡¡¡¡!!!!! Alucinante este GP. ¿No queréis muchos más así?
    Lo bueno: parece que por primera vez en muuuuuchos años, podemos tener una segunda mitad y final de temporada super-emocionante, con muchos que se juegan muchas cosas (y dinero).
    Yo pensé que había visto años atrás la última victoria de Alonso en la F1. Tras lo de hoy, y aún sabiendo lo difícil que es por edad, por el ansia de los jóvenes, por los equipos y las órdenes. Quizás, lo vea en el pódium y ganar otra vez (en diferido esta vez).
    Soñar es gratis, y es complicado...Aunque no dejo de preguntarme ahora qué habría pasado (no tiene sentido pero lo hago) si Alonso no tiene ese "extraño atropello" antes del inicio de temporada, y hubiera hecho pretemporada "normal".
    Eso sí...Pese a su error al final...Creo todos nos hemos frotado hoy los ojos.
    Y lo del ensalzamiento del equipo al final, muy bien a nivel de marketing. Ha sido muy inteligente, y ahí se nota ya no es joven y tan visceral, pero sí suelta la lengua y mete el dedo en el ojo, con un par..."He always complains", ...
    Hay temporada y final emocionante, salvo que alguno de los de arriba la cague varias veces seguidas y se lo ponga en bandeja al otro.

    Si alguien sabe dónde ver la carrera entera de nuevo, que me lo diga. Quiero verla de nuevo. YO ayer tras muchos años volví a gritar...Jajajajajaja...Los vecinos debieron seguro asustarse en cierto momento...Sobre todo cuando gritée a lo más puro Darth Vader...NOOOOOO...Jajajajaja...Eso sí, quedará para los anales lo de ayer, da igual que se quede con 2 mundiales. Si todavía algún anti idiota no vio lo que hizo ayer (mención aparte también Latifi o Russell, y Tsunoda un poco menos), ... Es que les puede otra cosa...
    Lo dicho, tras años he vuelto a sentir viva una carrera, aunque haya sido loca...
    P.S.: El dardo a Bottas de Alonso...
    P.S.(II): Oir la conversación de Ocon y su ingeniero, o sus palabras después, piel de gallina...Man of the Day!!!!
    ¿Qué más tiene que demostrar Alonso ya? ¿Que puede ganar un mundial con más de 40 años si le dan un coche decente? Yo tengo dudas de eso, que gane alguna carrera un poco más cerca (Ocon le debe una y creo que si el dueto funciona como ayer, le devolverá el favor en el futuro), los jóvenes al final pisan fuerte y la edad no perdona. Pero demostró que hay vida tras los 40...

    Hungary GP: Race team notes - Mercedes

    Lewis completed a remarkable recovery drive to finish on the podium despite finding himself running last on lap five after an action-filled start to the race.

    Valtteri suffered wheelspin in the heavy rain at the race start, losing position to the cars around him on entry to the first corner. He locked brakes and collided with Norris, sparking a multi-car accident with several cars suffering damage and a number of retirements, including Valtteri. Lewis was unscathed out-front.


    The race was red-flagged and upon the standing restart, the Team chose to keep Lewis out on the Intermediate tyre and start from the grid, while the remainder of the field behind opted to pit for slick tyres and start from the pit lane.


    On a rapidly drying track, Lewis was forced to pit just one lap later to fall in line with the other cars and found himself emerging from the pits 14th and last, with a mountain to climb.


    Lewis carved his way through the field with a number of impressive overtakes to climb to fifth with a little over 10 laps to go, before encountering a stubborn Alonso who defended strongly and cost Lewis precious time.


    Eventually, Lewis made the pass on Alonso and quickly dispatched SAI thereafter but ran out of laps and was forced to settle for a heroic P3, joining debut-winner Ocon on the podium alongside Vettel in P2.


    Lewis Hamilton (192 points) leads the Drivers' Championship by 6 points from Max Verstappen (186) and Lando Norris in P3 (113), with Valtteri (108) in P4. The Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team (300 points) lead Red Bull by 10 points in the Constructors' Championship.


    Lewis Hamilton: First of all, I want to say a quick congratulations to the Alpine Team and to Esteban - he's been a shining star for some time now so it's been a long time coming and I'm really, really happy for him. It's great to see Aston Martin up there with their best result so far and I know there's more to come from them. We've had an amazing crowd this weekend and I'm grateful for the support.


    Today was definitely tough, it's crazy to think we were the only ones on the grid at the start, but these things happen in an unpredictable race, and we will learn any lessons that need to be learnt. I gave it everything today and I had nothing left at the end. I came into this weekend not knowing how we would perform and considering the circumstances today, I'll take P3!


    Valtteri Bottas: I had a poor start with lots of wheelspin off the line, lost a couple of places and then into turn one, I was right on the gearbox of Lando and locked the wheels. I misjudged the braking point - it's always difficult starting a race in those conditions, you're always 'guesstimating' grip levels and today I got it wrong. I've spoken to Lando and Checo to apologise, it was my bad today and sometimes you have to hold your hands up.


    Toto Wolff: A difficult start for Valtteri, he suffered wheelspin off the line and found himself sandwiched into the first corner and missed the braking point. A small mistake with large consequences and damage to several cars, and I'm sorry to McLaren and Red Bull - to lose out in an accident like that at the start of the race is tough to take.


    We then had a decision to make with Lewis on the race restart and I stand absolutely behind our decision, keeping him out was absolutely the right call for us, even if it was a little lonely for him out there. It would have been a gamble to pit from the lead, the track tried unbelievably quickly in the sun and it could have easily gone the other way, and then we would have looked foolish for bringing him in. It was a courageous drive from Lewis to carve his way back through the field and the win was possible at the end, but Fernando defended strongly and perhaps it wasn't our day to win.


    Andrew Shovlin: Congratulations to Esteban and Alpine on the win. For us it wasn't a very tidy day - Valtteri had a very poor start and then his mistake at turn 1 obviously ruined the day for Max, Sergio and Lando; we can only apologise for that, although it's not much by way of consolation. Given the position we were in at the restart, we didn't particularly want to gamble on slicks but we were surprised when the entire grid left on intermediates. It was even more surprising to see them all pit on the formation lap.

    That is obviously one of the key moments of the race for us, although we wouldn't have been leading on the restart as having the first garage means the field coming in behind us prevents us from leaving our pit box. Recovering from last position was clearly then an enormous challenge for Lewis and to get to third took everything he had.


    It's such a difficult track to overtake on and we had to convert to the two-stop to get through but unfortunately we spent too many laps behind Fernando and that meant Lewis was only catching the leaders on the last lap. It's frustrating to have given away a chance to win here but encouraging that the car was really good - we weren't expecting to be so strong. We've got a week before the summer shutdown and there's lots to do in the next few days to prepare for a triple header on our return but it's going to be nice to have some time off as it's been non-stop since testing back in February.

    Hungary GP: Race team notes - Red Bull

    Max Verstappen: "It was all out of our hands in the race and I can't believe I got taken out for the second week running. The mechanics did what they could to get me back in the race but I was carrying a lot of damage on the car after the incident and it was super difficult to drive with, there was a lot of oversteer and understeer from the downforce loss. Of course it's really disappointing to only score one point but on the other hand I was incredibly lucky to continue after the crash so it was a surprise to score a point at all which is still important. We have the summer break now but we keep pushing, we will never give up and we will focus on ourselves. We've had two very unlucky races but nothing is lost, it's still a very long season. Congratulations to Esteban too, you can see that he is super happy and I'm sure many more race wins will follow."

    Sergio Perez
    :
    "I don't know what to say but it is unbelievable to be hit like that at Turn 1 and a massive blow for us as a Team. I got a good start and was up to third and it is such a shame because I think we had a good opportunity in those conditions, but there was nothing I could do. I have watched the replays as it was hard to understand exactly what happened behind me from inside the car and I just knew I got a big hit. Bottas made a big mistake and braked too late into Turn 1 which took out a lot of cars, including me and caused bad damage to Max's car. He came to me and apologised as he knew it was his mistake, and although it was not on purpose and is how racing goes sometimes, it doesn't make a difference to the result for us right now as the large amount of damage ended our race and opportunity for points."


    Christian Horner: "It is obviously an enormously frustrating way to end the weekend but we are within 10 points of first place in the championship going into the summer break which means it's all to play for. Unfortunately, Bottas braking late into Turn 1 eliminated both of our cars, Checo was immediately forced to retire and the substantial amount of damage to the right hand side of Max's car meant he had no chance of fighting at the front.


    "Full credit once again has to go to our mechanics who worked wonders to get Max's car back out for the race. The temperatures were off the scale and they had to straighten pipes and fix the right side as much as possible in very limited time, before nailing the fastest pit stop once again, which is quite remarkable. It is also disappointing not to have seen what Checo had in store today as his start was impressive and he felt very confident in the car and his race pace. Max fought hard, despite the extensive damage and downforce losses, securing one point which could prove vital at the end of the year.
    "There is no doubt that this has cost us a lot today, financially in a cost cap world, points wise and for Honda who now need to understand whether Checo's engine is salvageable, but there are many positives to take into the summer break. We have achieved six victories with the most competitive chassis and power unit package we have had for years and the whole team is fully motivated. We will take a few weeks off, recharge and come out fighting for the second half of this championship. We have experienced close title battles like this before and we are not giving up anything. The points difference between the top two in both championships is still very small, it will be an epic second half to this year and we are ready for it."

    Hungary GP: Race team notes - McLaren

    Daniel Ricciardo: "These races are fun for the fans because there's always chaos. Wet starts are never boring and it's very tricky for us. I was halfway around Turn One and I thought I'd escaped the mess. I could see one car in front and thought 'I'm P2! This is amazing!' and just as I exited the corner, I saw Charles [Leclerc] come into me, but I'd suspected someone went into him, because he caught me really late in the corner.

    "There were a few other drivers making mistakes into the first corner and it cost a lot of us a race. Valtteri [Bottas] obviously cost Lando his race and Lance [Stroll] cost me mine. So, there wasn't much more we could do after that, despite us trying. There were parts where I could hang on to the cars ahead, but with the car damage we had, and the difficulty overtaking here, it really just limited our race.


    "In the end, the tyres were gone, and it was just about trying to hang on for dear life, but I couldn't hang on to the points. I tried to hold on to Max, and to be honest I thought I did okay! I don't know how many laps I held him off, but once he was past, the race was done, which is a shame.


    "It looked very promising, but now, when you look at the race and the chaotic results, you realise you could've been up there, but unfortunately not. We were one of the many that just got unlucky today through no fault of our own.


    "After a race like that we're all looking forward to the holidays, but we'll push on for a few more days of testing and then I'm very much looking forward to taking a break and just switching off, recharging the batteries and coming back stronger in Belgium."


    Lando Norris: "Not much to say, it was a short race! I only really made it to Turn One. Until then, it was extremely good – I was into third place but then I got taken out and was just a passenger. The boys did a great job trying to get the car fixed and get me back out during the red flag, but it was impossible as there was just too much damage. It's a huge shame, but it wasn't our fault. We still had a good weekend, and everything was going well until then, so we can be satisfied with our performances and look forward to the next one.


    "I hope everyone can have a well-deserved rest now. The whole team here and back at the factory has done an awesome job this season. We'll come back more energised and ready to retake what we lost out on this weekend."


    Andreas Seidl, Team Principal: "A day to forget for us. Unfortunately, both of our drivers and cars were victims of incidents in Turn One after good race starts, which finished our day.


    "We had to retire Lando's car straight away with extensive damage. Daniel's had heavy bodywork damage as well, but the team was still trying to fight for points, which wasn't possible with the loss of aero we'd suffered.


    "Thanks to Lando and Daniel, the entire team and our colleagues from HPP for all the hard work everyone has put in here during this weekend, with very hot ambient temperatures. We will finish the first half of the season with P3 in both championships, which is a good platform from which we start the second half of the season. We'll stay in Hungary to complete a Pirelli test here on Tuesday and Wednesday before the entire team goes into a well-deserved summer break for two weeks, to recharge batteries and come back strong again for the second half of the season.

    "Congratulations to Esteban and Alpine for a great drive and the win today."

    Hungary GP: Race team notes - Ferrari

    Carlos Sainz drove to a strong fourth place in the Hungarian Grand Prix. However, it cannot make up for the disappointment of the points lost, that the Scuderia could have scored, if Charles Leclerc had not been knocked out of the race when another driver got it completely wrong and smacked into the number 16 SF21 at the first corner.

    Carlos managed to bring home a good result, going from 15th on the grid to fourth at the flag. However, even the Spaniard was somewhat disappointed after he lost places to several drivers at the time of the pit stop immediately following the restart, as they left their pits in rather a cavalier fashion. Sainz was therefore unable to stick with the two leaders who went on to finish the race in first and second places and that cost him the chance of fighting for the win.


    It is now time for the Championship summer break, with racing resuming at Spa-Francorchamps, when the Belgian Grand Prix takes place on 29 August.


    Carlos Sainz: What a crazy race. After starting P15 we actually had a good chance of a podium. Losing positions to Williams and AlphaTauri after the first pit stop due to the traffic in the pit lane cost us dearly. We were in the hunt for the win at that point, but instead we lost any real chance of fighting for it.


    In the first stint on slicks, once I was in clean air, the pace was super strong and I overcut Latifi and Tsunoda. Unfortunately in the last few laps I couldn't do much to defend from Hamilton, as I was on very old Hard tyres, having to look after the fuel and also coming up behind the McLaren at the end of the main straight which made it impossible to defend that podium position. I feel for Charles today because he was taken out through no fault of his own and I'm sure we could've scored more points with both cars.


    Overall, the first half of this first season with Ferrari has been positive. We still need to continue to understand the car in every type of corner and condition, but I think we are definitely on the right path. We'll keep pushing and come back recharged after the summer break.


    Charles Leclerc: A hugely frustrating Sunday for me. I had a strong start and was in a good position, fighting for second or third. I knew that I had an opportunity today, so I took it easy and moved with caution. I was taking the first corner and no way was I expecting anyone to make that kind of move on me. Getting caught out like this is just a shame. The damage was so big that once I arrived at the braking point for the next corner, I spun straight away. Not the way we wanted to head into the summer break, but that's how it is.


    Matia Binotto: We were in with the chance of a great result given that the rain before the start created an opportunity to fight for a top place finish. However, even though Charles adopted the right cautious approach to the initial moments after the start in the wet and had managed to move further up the order, he was hit from behind by a driver who had tackled the corner in a less than prudent manner, to say the least. It was a real shame because I think Charles could have done really well today.


    Carlos drove a great first part of the opening lap to go from 15th to fourth. At the restart, he came in immediately for slicks and, after a pit stop in under two seconds, we released him back into the pit lane, observing the safety requirements taking into consideration all the traffic at that time. In front of our place in the pits, others seemed to have no such qualms and so we lost several places, which probably cost Carlos the chance to fight with the two drivers who finished first and second. As far as the race went from then on, fourth is a fair reflection of our race performance.


    A very intense first half of the championship has now come to an end, during which the team reacted well after a very difficult season last year. We have a couple of young, very strong drivers who are making progress, as are we. Now we can take a short break to pause for breath and recharge the batteries, before tackling the second part of the year with renewed energy.


    Finally, I want to congratulate all the Italian athletes taking part in the Olympic Games in Tokyo, especially Marcell Jacobs and Gianmarco Tamberi who have left an indelible mark on Italian sport, taking the gold medals in the 100 metres and the high jump respectively.

    Hungary GP: Race team notes - Alpine

    Alpine F1 Team secured its first win in Formula 1 at the Hungaroring thanks to a stunning drive by Esteban Ocon to grab his maiden victory in the sport. Fernando Alonso finished in fifth after some valiant battles of his own meaning the team heads into the summer break in fifth position in the Constructors' Championship.

    In damp weather conditions, Esteban and Fernando got off the line well and managed to avoid several first corner incidents. With their mirrors full, the Frenchman exited Turn 1 in second place with Fernando just behind in seventh. A red flag brought proceedings to a short delay to allow the resulting debris to be cleared. During the 15-minute break in action, the track began to dry leaving drivers and teams with an agonising choice on whether to fit the slicks at the end of the Formation Lap. In the end, only one car (Lewis Hamilton) lined-up on the grid with Intermediate tyres, with Esteban and Fernando opting to switch to the dry compounds along with the rest of the field.


    Both cars avoided any contact at the restart and Esteban assumed the lead of the race once Hamilton conceded and pitted for dry tyres. He settled into an early rhythm with the Aston Martin of Sebastian Vettel keeping him in close company.


    Vettel was brought into the pits one lap earlier than Esteban, but a smooth pitstop by the team meant he held position and could avoid an undercut.


    Whilst his team-mate was in the lead, Fernando was fighting inside the podium places, battling with Carlos Sainz and a late charging Hamilton. With fresher rubber, Lewis shared a thrilling battle for fourth place with Fernando, whose actions protected Esteban's lead from the seven times World Champion. The Spaniard was eventually forced to cede the place to the Mercedes at Turn 2.


    Despite constant pressure from the German driver behind, Esteban delivered a measured and error free drive to hold onto the lead and take the chequered flag. The result means Esteban becomes the first driver to win in a French car with a French engine since Alain Prost's victory for Renault in Austria 1983. It is also the first victory for the Alpine brand, just six months after it made its F1 debut.


    His team-mate stayed in fifth place and scored his best result of his Formula 1 comeback with the pair scoring Alpine's best result in the sport to date.


    Laurent Rossi, Chief Executive Officer, Alpine: I am incredibly proud and delighted with this result; for Esteban, for Alpine, for Renault Group, for Fernando and for the teams across the UK and France that have worked tirelessly to deliver the first victory for Alpine. Everyone has shown great resilience, dedication and passion to get this result - it was great teamwork all round, especially for Fernando and his incredible fighting spirit. We are humbled by standing on the podium amongst the giants of this amazingly competitive sport. It has been an incredible week; we started with the opening of our Alpine dealership in Hungary, marked Fernando's birthday and now we finish with a double French victory! We can celebrate this now and use as inspiration for further success as we carry on the Alpine journey well into the future.


    Esteban Ocon: Formula 1 Grand Prix winner, it's unbelievable and it definitely has not sunk in yet. What a moment, allez les bleus! It was a crazy race from the very start to the end. There were a lot of decisions to make and the team executed that really well along with the crew who did a mega pit-stop, which was crucial to staying in front of Sebastian [Vettel]. I was happy to manage the pace as best as possible at the front and it all worked out well today. What a fight from Fernando too, his amazing teamwork at the end played a huge part in the win and it was great to share the moment with him. I can't be thankful enough for the team's work and support and it's all paid off today. A big thanks as well to everyone at Enstone and Viry - this is for you!


    Fernando Alonso: It was a very long race, very tough, and we were fighting all the way through. The start was key - I was a bit unlucky and lost some positions, but some were even unluckier than me. It compromised our race a little, however, top five is the best result of the year for me so far, but winning the race for the team is the best result ever. Now we have quite some history on this track! My first victory came here with Renault in 2003, now Esteban has won as Alpine in 2021. I am so happy for him and for the guys. Sometimes we have been unlucky but today was one of the lucky days and we have to maximise these opportunities. We can execute races close to perfection if luck is with us. We've been up and down, but we can now look forward to the future and repeat the success of the past. These boosts motivate us, and we can go into the break with a smile on our faces.


    Marcin Budkowski, Executive Director, Alpine F1 Team: What an incredible result, the first win for Esteban and for Alpine F1 Team. Esteban was unbelievable today, huge congratulations to him for his first Grand Prix victory. It was a stressful race and it felt incredibly long. We put ourselves in a great position at the start, made the right calls during the race, the pit crew executed two perfect pit-stops and then it was about holding all the way to the end. We knew Lewis [Hamilton] would be a threat in the last laps, but we must pay huge credit to Fernando for fighting hard to defend against him, as this helped a lot to protect Esteban's position. We've seen crazy races in the past and it's about being there to capitalise on any opportunity and today we did just that. I'm so proud of this Team today, not only here at the track but also at Enstone and Viry, this is the reward for their hard work over the last few years. Let's savour this win, it will give us the appetite for many more.

    Hungary GP: Race team notes - Aston Martin

    Sebastian Vettel: "Second place is a great result and we can be proud of our performance, but when you are that close to victory, you always want more. At the start of the race, I could see the contact ahead of me, so I took the inside line and found myself with the leading cars. From then on, I felt like I tried to take the lead for the entire 70 laps, but it is so difficult to overtake here. I think we were quicker for most of the race, but there was not enough of a difference to make an overtake because it was very hard to follow in the dirty air. I tried to pressure Esteban [Ocon] into a mistake, but he did not make a single one. Congratulations to Esteban, it is his day and I am very happy for him. He deserved the victory. I will sleep well tonight knowing I gave it my all. We have a good fight on our hands in the midfield with Alpine and AlphaTauri, so we will take the summer break to rest up and come back ready to fight in Belgium."

    Lance Stroll: "Congratulations to Seb and the team for our second podium of the season, everyone in the team has been working so hard and I am happy for them. On my side, it is really frustrating to have to retire so early in the race. Once the incident at the front of the field happened, I took the line to the inside to try and avoid making contact, but I locked up under braking. As soon as that happened, I knew I would not make the corner because it was so slippery and tricky out there. I did all I could to avoid contact but, unfortunately, my race was over. We will take the break to regroup and we want to come back stronger in Belgium."


    Otmar Szafnauer, CEO & Team Principal: "Formula One is all about tiny increments, and it was a couple of tiny increments that cost Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One Team our first Grand Prix win today. Had our lap-36 pit-lane time-loss been just a fraction of a second less, Sebastian would have jumped [Esteban] Ocon and would surely have held on to win. Having said that, second place is a great result for us, and Ocon drove mistake-free. Again, Lance was unlucky, for he made a truly sensational start, passing a lot of cars, including Sebastian, and, had he not been involved in a Turn One shunt, we may well have had two drivers on the podium today. However, faced with a tangle of cars in front of him, Lance was left with nowhere to go, and that was that. But his time will come, mark my words. Finally, I want to pay tribute to everyone who has worked so hard to make today's result possible, both here in Hungary and back home in the UK. Next up is the summer break, then Spa!"

    Hungary GP: Race team notes - AlphaTauri

    Pierre Gasly: "To be honest, I don't really know what to think. We started P5, which is probably the best position we can hope for, but then I was almost taken out in the first corner incident and had to make my way back through the field to finish in P6. It's good obviously to be finishing where we did, with everything that happened in the race, but I think it definitely could've been better. We were best of the rest in Quali and I was happy with the car, so there's lots of positives to takeaway from this weekend but obviously we've lost a lot of points in the Championship which is disappointing.

    However, I think we've come away with the best possible outcome given today's circumstances. A big congrats to Esteban for the win – I think they did the right think with the strategy and he deserves it."

    Yuki Tsunoda: "After the first lap I managed to jump up to P5, which I was really pleased with. I've really struggled with the car the whole weekend, but the pace was ok during the race and I managed to bring home some good points for the team today. For me, this has been a really difficult weekend, up until the race, so I need to go away, reset over the summer break and look at what I need to work on ahead of Spa, so I can continue to consistently score points in the second half of the season."

    Hungary GP: Race team notes - Alfa Romeo

    Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN missed out on the points in an agonising manner in a chaotic Hungarian Grand Prix, with Kimi Raikkonen finishing in P11 and Antonio Giovinazzi in 14th. Both cars were in good position earlier in the race, but penalties to both drivers meant they had to start their climb again from the back, finishing just outside the top ten.

    On the back of the strongest qualifying session of the year, there was optimism going into the race. A shower just minutes before the lights out meant the opening stages of the race were chaotic, with a series of incidents eliminating several competitors and the race red flagged after just two laps. Having had to take evasive action in the melee, both Kimi and Antonio had not capitalised on the confusion as much as hoped, but the restart provided a new chance to make up ground.


    On a rapidly drying track surface, both drivers opted to stop for slick tyres after the new formation lap: however, a technical issue with the pit-stop release system meant that Kimi collided with Nikita Mazepin's Haas in the pitlane, suffering no damage but receiving a 10 second penalty for his role in the clash. Antonio was also hit with a setback, a stop & go for speeding in the pitlane. Burdened with those penalties, both had their work cut out.


    Antonio ended up closing in to Mick Schumacher but, on the tight and twisty Hungaroring circuit, overtaking proved impossible. Kimi was able to catch up the four-car battle for P9, but after passing Daniel Ricciardo he had to settle for P11.


    The result is disappointing, but many races remain to break once again in the top ten. The summer shutdown will now offer an opportunity to recharge the batteries and come back stronger.


    Frederic Vasseur, Team Principal: "It ended up being a very tough weekend for the team, after a promising start. We came into the race after a good Saturday in which we delivered the best overall qualifying performance of the season but the opening stages were chaos. We got blocked in turn one, trying to avoid the start incidents, and we had to recover from the back of the field on a track where overtaking is very hard.

    Unfortunately, a collision with Mazepin and a speeding in the pitlane offense meant that both Kimi and Antonio received penalties and we weren't able to turn this chance into points at the end. It's a shame as it was an opportunity to score big points: but we keep working hard, knowing we will have more opportunities in the second part of the season."


    Kimi Raikkonen: "The start of the race was a bit what you would expect in these conditions, with a hectic first lap and lots of things happening. We looked quite ok until the penalty, which pretty much compromised our race: there was an issue with the traffic light release system and we ended up colliding with Mazepin. Up until the penalty, we were deep in the points, but making it back from the bottom was just too much."

    Antonio Giovinazzi
    :
    "It just wasn't our day. It was a race where we had the chance to bring home a good result and we didn't, but it is what it is. With the penalty after the restart, our race was pretty much compromised: it's hard to say how much pace we really had as I spent a lot of time in traffic, but when in clean air we were pretty good so it's disappointing not to finish in the points. Let's focus on recharging our batteries in this break and then come back stronger in Spa. There are still many races to come after the holidays and we will not give up."

    Hungary GP: Race team notes - Haas

    Uralkali Haas F1 Team driver Mick Schumacher classified 13th while Nikita Mazepin was forced to retire at the Hungarian Grand Prix, Round 11 of the 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship – held at the Hungaroring.

    Schumacher took the start on Pirelli Cinturato Green intermediate tires following a pre-race shower and rose 10 positions to 10th place following a chaotic first corner in which two separate collisions shook up the order and eliminated five drivers. The race was halted due to the quantity of debris.

    Schumacher exchanged his intermediates for mediums due to the drying nature of the track and took the restart from the pit lane, along with all bar Lewis Hamilton.

    Schumacher held a spot inside the top 10, keeping some established front-runners at bay, before coming in on lap 35 of 70 to take on a set of hard rubber. Schumacher preserved those tires through to the checkered flag, maintaining his 100 percent finishing record in Formula 1, taking 13th.


    Mazepin also started on intermediates and gained five spots on the opening lap, despite sustaining a puncture amid the chaos. Mazepin was set to take the restart from 14th position but boxed to take on slicks – where he was ultimately side-swiped by Alfa Romeo's Kimi Raikkonen in the pit lane. Mazepin's left-front sustained terminal suspension damage and he was forced into an immediate retirement. Stewards deemed Alfa Romeo culpable and issued a 10-second time penalty for Raikkonen.


    Up front Alpine's Esteban Ocon claimed his maiden grand prix, ahead of Aston Martin's Sebastian Vettel, with Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton third.


    Uralkali Haas F1 Team will embark on a summer recess, which includes a mandatory 14-day shutdown period, prior to resuming its 2021 campaign at the Belgian Grand Prix. That will be held at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps from August 27 to 29.


    Nikita Mazepin: "That's one race I really wanted to be in. Not only for me, but this race offers lots of opportunities and my team really needs those opportunities. I saw the carnage in T1 and thought this is our day, and then I drove over debris and the team informed me I had a left-front puncture, I boxed and lost my track position and then boxed again and you saw what happened. That's seriously not the way I wanted to go into the summer break because you want to give it your all and at least leave this weekend tired, with a sore body and sore neck. It's a lack of laps and a lack of result, it's very annoying. I'm sure this is just one of those day that is just rewarded later on."


    Mick Schumacher: "Finishing in front of an Alfa is something that we weren't anticipating and starting from last and finishing P13 is quite a decent result for us. We were keen on having a point but frankly we don't have the car at the moment to do so but nonetheless this was great experience as I've been able to battle with the top guys and the championship leader. For me personally, from a growth point of view, it was very good. We always knew it was going to be tough but today was a very nice day and after having a disappointing day yesterday, we came back on a high. Ending this first half of the season on a high is very positive for everybody - the team and myself - and being able to battle with the top guys brought me so much experience and knowing that I can throw out my elbows, I'm glad I got that opportunity."

    Guenther Steiner: "A tough day for us today. It started promising, with all the mayhem that happened, we always had some hope. We were taken out for no reason by an Alfa Romeo which Nikita couldn't do anything about - he just got taken out in a bad way. The good thing was to see Mick fighting for whatever was there and holding Giovinazzi behind, that was pretty good. For sure, it's a good lesson for him next year to fight with somebody - even if the car is faster - he kept him behind. It was still frustrating because other people scored points and we didn't and at some stage it looked like we would as well."

    Hungary GP: Race team notes - Williams

    Nicholas Latifi finished 8th and George Russell 9th in a chaotic Hungarian Grand Prix. George started the race 17th and Nicholas 18th both on the intermediate Pirelli tyre.

    George and Nicholas both made impressive starts, with Nicholas making up 12 places to P6 and George up nine to P8. Following the Red Flag, both drivers changed from the intermediate compound to the medium tyre on the formation lap ahead of the restart.

    Both Nicholas and George stopped once again for the hard Pirelli tyre, lap 21 for George and lap 23 for Nicholas.


    Thank you to the entire team for their continued hard work and securing our first double points finish since the 2018 Italian Grand Prix.


    Dave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance: Today, a small amount of rain caused a big swing in fortunes for the field. We obviously benefited, not least from the crashes at the initial race start. However, the Team made the most of the situation and made good decisions throughout the race. Both drivers managed their pace, their cars and their tyres expertly and both were calm and confident throughout. Although we ultimately lost some places to faster cars, we are nonetheless very happy with the result. Finishing on the lead lap and in relatively dry conditions meant that we had to work hard to manage the fuel, but this was done well and in conjunction with the tyre management.


    Whilst we were a bit fortunate today, the result is due to a huge amount of work at the track and the factory and the ability to put into practise everything that we have learned as a Team over the last few seasons. We can now begin our preparations for Belgium before taking some time off. When we return, we will attack the second part of the season with renewed confidence.


    Nicholas Latifi: It is an amazing result for the team, and I am so happy for us. The team has been knocking on the door of points for a few races now, so to get both cars in the points and to move up to P8 in the championship is amazing. The race from my side was very tough to manage, obviously the start in the first corner was what sealed it for me. We struggled in qualifying yesterday, so to come away with a result like this is better than anything we could have hoped for. Overall, it is a really nice way to head into the summer break.


    George Russell: I'm so happy for everyone and I'm a bit lost for words. It was an incredible race. My final stint was probably the best of my whole career as I was fighting like crazy, fending off Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen. I'm just so pleased for everyone because it's been a big slog over the last two-and-a-half years for me, and three-and-a-half years for the team, so these points are really deserved. Really well done to Nicholas too, he made an amazing start and drove a really great race. Finishing eighth and ninth, we couldn't really have done much more today.

    Hungary GP: Race team notes - Pirelli

    Alpine driver Esteban Ocon took his first ever Formula 1 win at a dramatic Hungarian Grand Prix, which originally started with all the field (apart from Alfa Romeo's Antonio Giovinazzi) on Cinturato Green intermediates in wet conditions. A collision at the first corner brought out a red flag, during which teams were allowed to change tyres and repair any damage.

    Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton, who led the field away for the re-start, was the only competitor to keep the intermediates and start from the grid, while all the other drivers came into the pits for medium tyres. Hamilton then pitted for mediums too at the end of the first racing lap following the re-start, rejoining last but eventually finishing third after an early switch to hard followed by a final run on mediums.


    Ocon effectively re-started on the P Zero Yellow medium C3 tyre after the second formation lap and then switched to the P Zero White hard C2 on lap 37, one lap after Aston Martin's Sebastian Vettel, who finished a close second on an identical strategy.


    After record-breaking temperatures on Friday and warm conditions yesterday, the weather completely changed today with rain and 28 degrees ambient, plus 32 degrees of track temperature at the start of the race. The track then warmed up considerably after few laps, peaking at 40 degrees of asphalt temperature.


    Mario Isola: "Even before the race start it was hard to make any predictions, so the race began as a complete step into the unknown today, with the drivers having no reference point for the conditions they faced this afternoon. The amount of water meant that the intermediates were the clear choice to originally start the race with, but with the track drying rapidly following the red flag delay, it effectively became a dry race after the re-start. If we just consider this as the 'real' race, some drivers selected a medium-hard one-stopper while others like Hamilton and Verstappen – who were running out of position due to the unusual race circumstances – went for a two-stop 'sprint' strategy. Congratulations to Esteban Ocon and Alpine for their first win."

    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.

    Martin Brundle (Sing '09)

    "Alonso has been brilliant all weekend, absolutely brilliant". "A driver not always easyto love, but very easy to admire".

    Y una *olla como una olla!

    No espero, pongo los definitivos , las probabilidades que tiene la reclamación de Red Bull están entre ninguna y el cero por ciento de prosperar.

    Pregunta del millón : "hay alguna certificación de que cargaran la gasolina declarada y necesria?

    Me temo que no, solo su declaración de que han puesto la gasofa necesaria, pero los errores humanos en el manejo de las bombas de gasolina, están a la órden del día .

    Y los comisarios técnicos están hasta los mismísimos de rebuscar la gasolina necesaria , lo han hecho mil veces todos.

    ¿Estamos de acuerdo en que ha sido la MEJOR carrera, aunque haya sido atípica por muchos motivos, de los últimos años en cuanto a EMOCIÓN+INCIDENTES+post-carrera?
    Creo que la audiencia para Spa va a subir bastante...

    ¿Vettel entonces P2?
    PUes como se ponga de moda acabar sin gasolina suficiente tendrán que regularlo mejor. Personalmente pienso que es absurda esa norma, como otras, en el sentido de que si alguien echa algo, al final todos lo echarán. Recordamos el F-duct todavía, aunque la trampa de la centralita de RB y los difusores aún se recuerda, como lo del Brawn GP.

    Spa lo tiene todo para ser emocionante como hace años no se veía. ¿Alguien más tiene ganas de que llegue YA?
    Jajajajaja...
    Eso sí, lo de Jaimito diciendo que Alonso era peligroso por ir rápido, me lo apuntaré...Y decían que Alonso era cry-baby...Demasiados años Hamilton ganando sin oposición. Este año se lo va a tener que currar. Pero no sé yo hasta cuándo les durará el juego sucio a Mercedes. YO ya empiezo a pensar mal de lo de Bottas...O del misterioso atropello a Alonso a principio de temporada, llamadme loco.

    Y dos post más abajo
    Vettel DQF
    , y todos menos Ocón ganan una plaza . Fíjate en que en Pdf de la FIA (doc 63), Vettel tiene a su izda DQ , no el 2 de posición.

    Precísamente esa norma no es tan estúpida, 33cl para el test FIA, 33cl para test de un independiente (si ha lugar), y 33cl de muestra para el equipo, que la guarde por si las moscas.
    Si la FIA no puede sacar 1L, es más, solo salen 0,3L.... ... AJO, AGUA y RESINA...


    Y p'o Dió, deja ya las "constipaciones pironoicas" ... Qué C.Jones tiene que ver el accidente de bici???

    Algunas novedades captadas por N. Carpentiers en el pasado GP de Hungría:

    La technique à Budapest : Alpine consolide


    C’est au volant d’une Alpine légèrement évoluée qu’Esteban Ocon a remporté le Grand Prix de Hongrie, sa première victoire en F1. Quant à Max Verstappen, il a dû piloter une Red Bull très endommagée. Explications.



    ALPINE (SE) RENFORCE

    Pas d’évolution majeure sur l’A521 victorieuse dimanche aux mains d’Esteban Ocon, si ce n’est l’amélioration de la rigidité des éléments composant la dérive latérale de l’aileron arrière.


    Comme on le voit ci-dessus, deux renforts ont été ajoutés, qui attachent les lamelles descendant de la partie supérieure de la dérive à sa partie inférieure (comparez les flèches jaunes).


    Pour aller vite, cette série d’entailles verticales travaillent en collaboration avec les ailettes fixées sur l’écope de frein arrière et le diffuseur.




    En déviant une partie du flux vers l’intérieur de l’aileron (ce qui n’est pas désirable isolément), elles permettent à ces ailettes attachées au écopes de frein de “respirer” et de bien remplir leur mission : diriger le flux d’air vers le haut et le connecter à l’aileron arrière.


    Il faut les considérer comme un élément d’un système : le fait qu’elles dévient le flux vers l’intérieur de l’aileron n’est pas idéal en soi mais permet aux ailettes de mieux travailler, ce qui améliore la performance globale. Ces lamelles ont été remplacées, chez certaines écuries, par un dessin très original (avec des incises sinueuses) inventé par Haas en 2019, repris par Red Bull en 2020 et par McLaren en 2021.


    Cette modeste mise à jour n’a pas transformé l’Alpine en foudre de guerre, elle dont la compétitivité ce week-end tient surtout au fait que l’A521 possédait les caractéristiques requises pour bien figurer sur le Hungaröring (bonne motricité, habileté dans les virages lents). À son volant, Esteban Ocon et Fernando Alonso s’étaient bien qualifiés (huitième et neuvième sur la grille), mais de là à imaginer une victoire, il y avait de la marge.

    Pour atteindre le sommet de la première place, il a fallu à la monoplace bleue une bonne dose de chance et deux excellents pilotes.


    Le plus jeune d’entre eux a remporté dimanche son premier Grand Prix, sur le circuit où le plus âgé arracha son premier succès en F1 dix-huit ans plus tôt.






    POURQUOI RED BULL ÉTAIT MOINS RAPIDE QUE MERCEDES ?

    Contrairement à ce que l’on pouvait attendre, c’est la Mercedes qui était la F1 la plus rapide ce week-end sur le circuit du Hungaröring. Sur une piste exigeant beaucoup d’appui, la Red Bull paraissait pourtant être la favorite, elle qui génère plus de charge que la Flèche d’argent.


    Certes, il y a un an, l’avantage de la Mercedes W11 sur ce même tracé était le plus élevé de la saison passée (1,27 % contre 0,72 % en moyenne). Un avantage en bonne partie dû au manque d’équilibre de la RB16. Curieusement, il semble que sa descendante soit affectée du même mal. Comme si les bolides produits à Milton Keynes ne pouvaient être réglés pour les longs changements de cap imposés par les virages serrés du circuit magyar… En tout cas, la RB16B a peiné tout le week-end à rester stable dans les longs virages, souffrant en particulier de sous-virage.


    Pour compenser ce phénomène, les mécaniciens montèrent un aileron plus plat, générant moins de charge. Moins pour accroître la vitesse en ligne droite (assez faible) que pour augmenter, proportionnellement, l’appui à l’avant et réduire ainsi le sous-virage. Malheureusement pour Max Verstappen, ce compromis, qui consista à ôter de l’appui sur une piste en exigeant beaucoup, n’améliora pas vraiment l’équilibre de sa monture (on l’a vu faire beaucoup de corrections au volant). C’est ce qui explique son déficit de quatre dixièmes de seconde en qualification.




    DE GRAVES DÉGÂTS


    En course, la situation de l’infortuné Hollandais s’est encore empirée après les dégâts causés à sa voiture par la McLaren de Lando Norris, projetée contre la Red Bull par la Mercedes en perdition de Valtteri Bottas. Le choc arracha tout le “bargeboard” droit, comme on le voit ci-dessus, et une partie du fond plat.


    Ces dégâts ne purent pas être réparés alors que les voitures étaient immobilisées dans l’allée des stands après la neutralisation de la course. Les mécaniciens réussirent à remplacer et reconnecter les conduites hydrauliques de la RB16B, mais pas le fond plat ni les déflecteurs latéraux, qui produisent une grande partie de l’appui.


    On sait que la présence des bargeboards entraîne grosso modo 25 % d’appui en plus. Ceci ne veut pas dire qu’ils produisent en eux-mêmes un quart d’appui supplémentaire, mais que leur effet sur des zones critiques pour l’appui – comme le fond plat – engendre une hausse de 25 % de la charge globale. En perdre un équivaudrait donc à perdre grosso modo 12 % de charge, auxquels il faut ajouter la perte due à la dégradation du fond plat, dont une partie était arrachée sur la voiture de Verstappen.


    Même s’il n’est pas le plus objectif en la matière (ce qui peut se comprendre), Christian Horner estimait que la voiture de son pilote avait moins d’appui que la Haas de Mick Schumacher, que le Néerlandais mit 14 tours à dépasser.


    S’ils les bargeboards sont si importants sur les F1 actuelles, c’est parce qu’ils jouent trois rôles essentiels (conditionneur de flux, générateur de vortex et créateur d’appui), que nous détaillons dans notre dossier exclusif.





    McLAREN POURSUIT SON DÉVELOPPEMENT

    En Hongrie, les deux McLaren, dont aucune ne termina dans les points dimanche, étaient équipées de nouveaux déflecteurs latéraux. Alors que la plupart des écuries ont affirmé qu’elles avaient cessé de développer leur châssis, comment comprendre que l’écurie britannique poursuit la mise à jour de sa voiture ?


    Tout simplement parce qu’il existe toujours un décalage entre ce qui a été développé en soufflerie et ce qui sera installé ensuite sur la voiture. Mais ce n’est pas tout. Une fois que les pièces ont été testées lors des essais libres, les écuries recueillent encore des informations intéressantes (notamment en utilisant de la peinture fluorescente), qui vont permettre d’affiner la pièce :


    “Nous avons apportées quelques évolutions ici en Hongrie, qui ne seront pas les dernières de la saison, puisqu’il faut toujours un certain temps pour les fabriquer et analyser leur fonctionnement en piste”, explique le directeur sportif Andrea Stella.


    “En Formule 1, on continue toujours à récolter des données quand on installe les pièces sur la voiture, car on n’obtient jamais une corrélation parfaite avec les outils de simulation. Quand on les évalue en conditions réelles, on obtient de nouvelles informations, qui vont permettre de perfectionner les pièces sans devoir nécessairement les faire repasser en soufflerie. On peut les adapter simplement avec quelques passages en CFD, en fonction de ce que l’on a vu en piste.”



    “Cette mise à jour n’est donc pas la dernière. Il y aura encore quelques améliorations lors des prochains Grands Prix, mais rien de fondamental.”




    L’écurie McLaren compte sur ces évolutions pour conquérir sa troisième place au classement des constructeurs, qu’elle partage actuellement avec la Scuderia (163 points chacun).


    Vous l’avez sans doute remarqué : les bargeboards sont très régulièrement mis à jour par les écuries (en Grande-Bretagne pour Mercedes, en Autriche pour Red Bull et Aston Martin, etc.). Pour quelle raison ?


    “Depuis 2017, c’est une zone de développement qui s’est considérablement ouverte”, nous explique Andrew Green, le directeur technique d’Aston Martin.



    “Par ailleurs, ça ne coûte pas très cher de la développer. Même si elle présente des surfaces complexes, il ne s’agit pas d’un composant structurel. Elle peut donc être fabriquée assez rapidement et à moindre coût. Ceci explique la profusion de versions au fil de la saison.”


    Pas sûr que Christian Horner ne trouve les bargeboards aussi bon marché que cela…




    SÉCURITÉ DÉVOILÉE

    Enfin, après les nombreux crashs de ces derniers Grands Prix, il importe de souligner combien les F1 actuelles sont sûres, grâce aux efforts de la FIA d’imposer des standards toujours plus élevés.


    Parmi ceux-ci figurent les deux structures déformables en carbone destinées à absorber l’énergie d’un éventuel impact latéral sont bien visibles sur l’Aston Martin endommagée de Lance Stroll.


    Aujourd’hui, toutes les F1 positionnent la structure déformable supérieure assez bas.

    Cette configuration, inventée par Ferrari en 2017 et reprise par toutes les écuries depuis, dégage autant que possible l’espace situé sous l’entrée d’air des pontons.

    Appelée “undercut”, cette zone remplit une mission déterminante sur le plan aérodynamique. En simplifiant beaucoup : plus il y a d’air passant sous cette ouverture, plus le flux est énergisé et reste attaché à la surface.


    Le creux de l’“undercut” dévie l’air autour de l’obstacle que constitue le ponton et le dirige vers l’arrière de la voiture. Rehausser l’ouverture laisse davantage de place à l’air pour qu’il s’écoule sur les flancs avec une fluidité et une énergie suffisantes. Ce flux énergisé est utilisé pour maintenir le flux d’air attaché sur la surface de la carrosserie et générer ainsi moins de traînée, tout en aidant le diffuseur à extraire l’air sous le fond plat. Plus ce flux est rapide, mieux le diffuseur fonctionne (car ce flux, qui finit par passer au-dessus du diffuseur, aide à extraire l’air de haute pression).

    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.

    Martin Brundle (Sing '09)

    "Alonso has been brilliant all weekend, absolutely brilliant". "A driver not always easyto love, but very easy to admire".

    Martin Brundle (Sing '10)
