Vettel sets new track record, grabs pole

30 July, 2017, 01:26 | Author: Gary Shelton

Going into the weekend, Vettel leads the Drivers' Championship with 177 points, Hamilton is second with 176 points and fellow Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas is third with 154 points.

Hamilton, who failed to get a super-soft tyre time in during Second Practice, owing to him aborting the first attempt and then Pascal Wehrlein bringing out the red-flag said that: "It wasn't the easiest start to the weekend, with conditions very gusty".

Ricciardo's time of 1 minute 18.455 seconds - just 0.019 seconds off the all-time lap record - underlined how comfortable he was in his vehicle.

McLaren were given a glimmer of hope, as their drivers Spanish Fernando Alonso and Belgium Stoffel Vandoorne came seventh and eighth respectively, behind Red Bull, Ferrari and Mercedes' drivers.

For the first time since F1's previous visit to a high-downforce circuit, at the Monaco GP in May, Ferrari outpaced Mercedes in qualifying at the twisty Hungaroring as Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen locked out the front row.

While Ferrari, in the new season that has seen faster and meaner engines, dominated the initial part of the year by winning three of the first six races, they have fallen behind without being able to finish on the top step of the podium in the last four races.

The Briton and Bottas both acknowledged Ferrari were clear winners in qualifying, but warned that the race today will be different.

The Ferrari's have been quick around the track during the practice sessions in Hungry with Mercedes appearing to struggle for grip.

"Yesterday it was looking a bit better for us, today was a little bit surprising but it just shows we definitively have work to do".

Vettel's closest rival in the overall championship standing, Mercedes' driver Lewis Hamilton of Britain managed 5th, trailing more than a second.

It really should be an interesting and exciting race to watch before we take our helmets off for a four-week break.

Daniel Ricciardo has said a few sloppy errors restricted him to P6 for Sunday's race, while Max Verstappen certainly had to work hard for P5. "The start was good and the end was not too bad, but on the chicane I braked on the outside kerb and got loose". So when you drive 110 per cent the auto is more on a knife edge and you are just taking it into places it doesn't want to go.

Vettel won this race in 2015.

"I like the track, I'm just going to enjoy it". "If you have good getaway, the straight line is 600m or 700m and there is an overtaking opportunity".

In the morning session, Ricciardo was 0.234 seconds quicker than Raikkonen and 0.372 ahead of Hamilton on a Hungaroring circuit that proved slippery despite warm weather conditions.
