Hungarian Grand Prix - Hungaroring, 23 July


Kimi Raikkonen: Im disappointed by the result of this qualifying, its really a shame because our car has been working well all weekend and even in wet conditions the handling was very good. For sure we are far from where we should be. At the end of Q2 I went out for my last attempt and I did a decent lap, at least for that moment, but the conditions were improving every lap, the track was getting faster and unfortunately we did not make it through Q3. Whatever the reason, when the conditions are like today its not easy. We tried to do the right things, unfortunately we will pay a price tomorrow, it will be difficult to overtake starting from the back but we wont give up. Well do our best, the speed is there and Im sure we can make something out.


Sebastian Vettel: I am not happy with P5, because it could have been better. It was quite a mess at the beginning to get through, then at the end I think we had a good performance in the car. We improved for this afternoon, but unfortunately the result doesnt show it. The pace was there, but we were not able to get the lap. Its a shame because in the end it was very good, I think it was already half a second down, then there was a yellow flag which caught us out, but we kept going. Then there was a bit of traffic, sometimes it is just like that. I think we have the pace to compete for the podium tomorrow, hopefully well have a good start then well go from there. Its a long race, anything can happen here. Other than that, I think that in the race pace usually we are quicker. Usually all the people decide to do the fastest strategy possible, but theres always something you can do. If the occasion comes up to do something smart I know we have the people on board to do it, so I trust them.
