Hungary Grand Prix ‘very boring’ – Montagny

Former F1 driver Franck Montagny said the spectacle of the 2016 season hit a low in Hungary.

“Unfortunately this race was very boring,” he told the French newspaper Le Point.

“I hope we don’t see many other grands prix like this, with very few surprises,” said the former Super Aguri driver.

Montagny said the race was won effectively at the first corner, when Lewis Hamilton overtook his Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg.

“I would have expected, given the way he took pole position, that the German would defend a little more,” he said.

“One then had the impression that Hamilton played with Rosberg throughout the race.

“It’s almost like he (Hamilton) needed a challenge to demonstrate that he could return to the highest level,” said Montagny, referring to the fact that Hamilton took the lead of the world championship for the first time in 2016.

Montagny said Hungary also confirmed the mid-season slump of Ferrari.

“It’s not going well,” he said, “and more importantly is that they look completely lost. I think the biggest problem for them is the constant pressure from the Italian press.”
