Red Bull: Both our cars looked competitive
Red Bull drivers report from day one of the Hungarian Grand Prix weekend at Hungaroring.
- First Practice Session: Position: 5, Best Time: 1:26.070, Laps: 17
- Second Practice Session: Position: 2, Best Time: 1:24.300, Laps: 29
“It was a good day for us today, the car performed well, however it’s only Friday and we have to keep pushing so that we turn that into a good result in qualifying tomorrow. Both our cars looked competitive, straight-line speed is less important here and that suits us. It’s a tough weekend for all the drivers, Jules is on all our minds, and we are all affected.”
- First Practice Session: Position: 4, Best Time: 1:26.053, Laps: 20
- Second Practice Session: Position: 3, Best Time: 1:24.451, Laps: 16
“The car felt good today. The balance is better and it’s an easier car to drive than in recent races. We didn’t make any big changes, just a few minor things that seem to be working well. This track suits us, as it’s less of a power circuit. It’s quite a bumpy track but we seem to be doing okay. We were using an old engine so we won’t have any penalties for that. It’s been an emotional week for all of us drivers; it’s important to race well for Jules this weekend.”
