GP Week : Issue 225
A dramatic Hungarian Grand Prix weekend saw both drivers involved in spectacular incidents and the team heading home empty handed. The team’s woes started on Friday morning when Sergio Perez suffered a suspension failure during free practice one, the Formula One paddock holding its breath as his car flipped over after tagging the wall. Thankfully the Mexican was uninjured in the accident, however the team withdrew both cars from the second free pre practice session as a precautionary measure. Both drivers took part in Saturday’s on track action after the team put in a late night to repair Perez’s car and ensure both contenders were safe. With Perez qualifying 13th and Nico Hulkenberg 11th spirits were high, only to come crashing back to earth mid-race. Hulkenberg brought out the safety car after his front wing fell off on the main straight on lap 42, sending the German into the tyre wall at high speed. He too was unhurt in the incident. Perez soon headed to the pits for a new front wing - the team suspecting a fault in the design - before taking the decision to retire the second car on safety grounds. However the weekend wasn't over even at that point with both drivers feeling the wrath of the stewards post-race with penalty points added to their super-licences due to on track incidents. Perez was penalised two points on his superlicense when he sent the Lotus of Romain Grosjean into a spin while Hulkenberg was in trouble after trying to reclaim a position from the Red Bull of Danii Kvyat without the room to do so. 33 GPWEEK.com // 33 GPWEEK.com // F1 >>> HUNGARY PARTNERS: one to forget
