Hungarian GP - Post-qualifying press conference - Pt.2

I think yes, to have the chance to have this second chance. As I say, I'm happy to be in Formula One again, even if it's more difficult. When you lose something that you really like, you realise how much it counts to you and today I'm proud to be back, proud to be part of the Lotus F1 team. I think we are growing up together, so far having a very good season so I'm very happy to be here and fitting in well to the Formula One world.

Q: (Peter Farkas - Auto-Motor)
As far as I understand, there could be some rain tomorrow. Did you take that into consideration in terms of set-up?

Sebastian Vettel:
No. I think the impact in terms of set-up that we see these days is way less than compared to the past, so something like a real rain set-up doesn't exist any more these days.

Q: (Livio Oricchio - O Estado de Sao Paulo)
Considering the difficulty of overtaking here, the number of laps you are able to do with these supersoft tyres in the first stint will maybe be the key to victory or a good finishing position?

Romain Grosjean:
We haven't got supersofts so you may mean with the soft. I think the key is part of the strategy. I think if you they can go longer than the others then you may stop earlier, if you think that you may be in difficulty at the end of the race as we have seen some cars then you don't have them. It will be a good question for the guys doing the strategy and then we try to make the target happening as good as we can.
