July.31 – McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton thinks overtaking chance in Hungary very hard, because starting will be very important to his opportunity of claiming a race victory. Last grand prix winner Hamilton is well form, and having qualified second in Hungary is in with a shout of claiming back-to-back wins for the first time in 13 months.
“It’s going to be important to start like a rocket man because you can’t overtake here, apart from in the pit stops, so it’s vital to have an even better start if I’m to win,” said Hamilton. But I’m not thinking I should have been on pole, although it was a possibility because we’ve been quick this weekend.
“I knew it was going to be very close, and if I’m honest I knew it was going to be difficult to be ahead of Sebastian. But I’m positive ahead of tomorrow. Jenson (Button) qualified third, and he is in a nice sweet spot ready for tomorrow for the start down to turn one.
“I’m just massively happy we’re in the fight because not so long ago we were behind the Red Bulls and Ferraris, and now we’re splitting them. We have both been saying how nice it is to drive the car, and we hope it will continue to be like this for the rest of the season.”
