Stewards to decide Rosberg’s pole – Horner

Red Bull F1 boss Christian Horner admitted that, having doubts about Nico Rosberg’s pole lap in Hungary following the Mercedes driver went fastest despite the presence of double-waved yellows.

Sky F1’s footage of Nico’s pole lap and the evidence appears to be conclusive: the Mercedes driver definitely lifted as he spotted the double yellow flags. “It’s bona fide,” Martin Brundle reports.

An interesting comments from Horner on Rosberg’s middle sector: “It’s down to the stewards to decide.”

“One thing I need to check,” says Horner.

“Rosberg was behind Daniel and managed to get a purple middle sector, with a car which I don’t know whether it had cleared or not by the time he got there.”

Mercedes boss Toto Wolff has been speaking to Sky Sports’ Ted Kravitz about Rosberg’s lap: “He had a big lift into the yellow zone. It should be ok as per our data.

“We haven’t been requested [to visit the stewards] yet, but you never know.”

Rosberg also isn’t expecting to run into any problems with the stewards:

“For sure there was double waved [yellows], but I had a very big lift and lost a lot of time as a result.

“I’m sure that’ll be okay.”

Lewis Hamilton refused to be downbeat following missing out on pole.

“I don’t know how much Nico was up, but I was four tenths up in the first sector. I felt good on the lap,” Hamilton commented, as he discussed his final lap.

“It’s a bit unfortunate with Fernando, but these things happen. I’m not really too disappointed. It was a tricky session and I did the best that I could do.

“We still have a long race ahead of us tomorrow.”
