Rubens Barrichello: “Hungary is the type of track that is quite difficult to overtake on, but with DRS it should be a little bit easier. It is a race I have won in the past so I am looking forward to racing there again. Just like Monaco, it is a slow speed track which can throw up a few surprises, so I hope we can get a better result. I stay in my motorhome so I’m about 20km away from the city but I know the place quite well and my kids will be coming so I’m looking forward to them also getting to know Hungary.”
Pastor Maldonado: “I really like the Hungaroring and I won the main race last year in GP2. The track is really slow speed so we might need to change our set-up quite a lot to adapt to that kind of circuit. There isn’t a single corner I like more than any other, I just like the track as a whole. I think it will be a hard weekend but I hope we can improve the car.”
Sam Michael, Technical Director: “Budapest is a high downforce circuit, with lots of slow speed corners. It has quite a bumpy track surface compared to normal. Usually there is a reasonable improvement in grip as the weekend progresses due to the dusty nature of the circuit. We will have new bodywork to test on the Friday, and we will also run KERS on both cars.”
