GP Week : Issue 225
should have scored points, Lotus will head back to Enstone empty handed with its tail between its legs, and some rather sharp words reserved for both drivers in the post-even debrief. The action wasn’t finished there though. Rosberg and Ricciardo came together when the Red Bull dive- bombed Rosberg at turn one. Having run wide Ricciardo hung it out around the outside while Rosberg looked to defend his position at corner exit. The German misjudged the width of the Red Bull though and clipped the front wing, puncturing his own tyre in the process and dropping him out of the points as he limped back to the pits. Daniil Kvyat was the main beneficiary. Having kept his nose clean, aside from running off the track when battling Hamilton, the young Russian inherited second place. Ricciardo’s advantage was such that he rejoined third, marking the strongest result of the season for Red Bull. But little should be read into that, since the Hungaroring plays to the strengths of the Red Bull car, masking its lack of engine power and relying more on chassis performance. When the circus reaches Spa and Monza for the next two races the results will be rather more humble. Much the same will be true at McLaren, which scored a double points finish for the first time this season. Importantly it wasn’t a result of attrition but earned on outright pace. Fernando Alonso claimed fifth with Jenson Button ninth to give the Woking squad a much needed morale boost. The result also somewhat justifies the rhetoric from the drivers which have claimed that the car is good, and once the engine is sorted it will move for ward. It’s not a golden bullet, there is still much to be done at neither Belgium nor Italy will be kind to the team, but it’s a suggestion that maybe, just maybe, the worst is behind it. 24 GPWEEK.com // 24 GPWEEK.com // F1 >>> HUNGARY PARTNERS:
