It was tight. Just disappointing – Whitmarsh

Published

July.30 – Vodafone McLaren Mercedes team principal Martin Whitmarsh says that it was tight just disappointing session, Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button in the first three grid spots for the Hungarian GP.

Lewis Hamilton early set his first speedy lap halfway through Q3; despite his McLaren appearing to suffer from excessive over-steer through the last few corners. But, Sebastian Vettel’s final lap set his top fastest time and demoted Hamilton to the outside of the front row.

“It was tight. Just disappointing,” he told BBC television. “But we’ve got both cars on front two rows so it should be an exciting race. It’s not result we wanted. He ran little wide at the last corner on the last lap, but neither were bad laps. It would just have been nice for him to have got pole.

“At least we should be competitive in the race. Both drivers had good runs on Friday, and we’re not in a bad place. We’ll try to make it exciting.”

Lewis, who could have given McLaren its first pole since Canada last year, said he was undisturbed about being beaten by Vettel.

“It’s still a great achievement,” he said. “We knew from the last race that we have good pace. Yesterday was good, but today they [Red Bull] picked up the pace. To be on the front row is good though and we can pick up some good points from three tomorrow.”
