Webber feel sad wrong tyre opt for Hungarian GP

Published

on

Aug.01 – The Australian Mark Webber was feeling distressing a wrong tyre choice through the Hungarian GP, after finishing fifth in the race. Mark Webber decided to switch to intermediates when it started to rain again late in the race.

The Red Bull’s driver Webber finished nearly 50 seconds off winner Jenson Button admitted it had been his call.

“It was quite an enjoyable grand prix up until when you make the wrong decisions from the cockpit,” said Webber. “I made the right one to go to the slicks when I did, which worked out well, but you look completely stupid when you are only on the intermediates for two laps. If it rains heavier, for another three or four minutes, then that’s the right decision. So that’s the roll of the dice you’ve got to make. Obviously the difference between the slicks and intermediates when it was wet was a lot.

“It was my call. I decided to roll the dice and, if it worked, obviously you win big. If you lose – I lost some positions. That’s the way it was today.”

The Australian said he was also upset by the rain at the start of the race, having to start from the dirty and wetter side of the track.

“It was pretty slippery on that side of the grid I think. I got away reasonable. I saw the Mercedes and those guys got a very good start – better than me for sure. That was the first part of the race, but you knew it was going to be some more decisions late in the race. I got some right, some wrong.”
