GP Week : Issue 187
FROM THE COCKPIT VALTTERI BOTTAS “It’s a shame to have my first retirement of the season as the goal was to finish every race, but there was nothing I could do today. We still need to investigate what happened but it felt like hydraulics as first I lost the power steering and then the engine. Today wasn’t my best race but in general I feel I am improving all the time and looking forward to the second half of the season. Congratulations to Pastor and the team on claiming our first point, we now need to work hard to build on that when we return after the summer.” ESTEBAN GUTIERREZ “It was a pity what happened. We were on a good strategy and everything was running as planned. unfortunately, we had to retire due to a gearbox problem. This is not really the best way to finish a race, but we did everything we could during the weekend. We had an engine problem yesterday and now the gearbox during the race, so this is something we have to look at to avoid it happening again. It is frustrating, but we need to stay positive and look forward to the next events, because we can see our performance has improved. The car felt very good up until that point, and I want to thank the team for all the effort it put in. Now we have to solve the issues we had in order to have trouble-free weekends.” ADRIAN SUTIL "IIt’s disappointing not to finish, especially as the race was coming back to me after a poor start on the medium tyres. Just before my pit stop I had a problem with the gear shifts and I could not shift up any more. I came into the pits and it became clear we had a hydraulic problem so the team immediately told me to park the car.” The GPWeeK driver of the day award goes to... LeWIs HAMILTON Ten races, four pole positions, three podium finishes, and – at last – that elusive first win for Mercedes. Lewis Hamilton arrived in Budapest thinking himself to be at a disadvantage. During practice, the W04 was respectable, but not brilliant. And the driver who was surprised to learn of his own pole position was dismissive of his chances of victory, telling the media it would take a miracle for him to emerge victorious on sunday. But a good start, a measured drive, and some well-timed post-pit overtaking manoeuvres meant that the ‘miraculous’ victory was entirely Hamilton’s own doing. sTATMAN Is on leave (running a marathon!) this week and will return ..... 44 GPWEEK.com // 44 GPWEEK.com // PARTNERS: F1 >>> HUNGARY Points – Drivers: Vettel 172, Raikkonen 134, Alonso 133, Hamilton 124, Webber 105, Rosberg 84, Massa 61, Grosjean 49, Button 39, di Resta 36, Sutil 23, Perez 18, Vergne 13, Ricciardo 11, Hulkenberg 7, Maldonado 1.
