Hungarian Grand Prix - Budapest, 25 July 2015

Kimi Raikkonen: 的t was a pretty normal qualifying, but we did not get the ideal result. We had some difficulties here and there and did not manage to put a very good lap together. This morning we had some issues and could not run with the soft tyres: for sure this did not help and it was a bit of unknown for qualifying, but it was not too bad and the behavior of the car was pretty good. Tomorrow I値l be on the clean side of the starting grid, we値l try to make a good start and see what happens in the first few corners. The race will be very long and obviously the Mercedes will be very strong, but if we cannot challenge them we値l try to be second best. We値l keep pushing and do our best.

Sebastian Vettel: 展e had a great recovery from a bad day yesterday. For sure it was not easy to catch up, but all in all I知 proud that we stayed calm, improved the car and had a good turnaround from yesterday, with an optimum result. We know it will be tight tomorrow, but we値l give our maximum. Remaining realistic, Mercedes is very strong and it would be very tough to beat them, but we also have to look behind us, at teams like Red Bull and Williams which are very strong. Red Bull in particular had a very good Friday but we still managed to outqualify them today, which showed that we are quicker.
