F1 » Hungarian Grand Prix - Free practice results (2)

I am at the Hungaroring for this weekend's race and enjoyed today's practice sessions. A few observations that may or may not be correct, tomorrow will tell. Lewis has Nico covered this weekend. The margin is quite large for a short track and Lewis looked strong. The Red Bulls, while quick, were working hard to make their times. The Ferraris are quicker but after posting strong laps they focused on on long runs. Seb had a few issues, while Kimi had strong long run pace. I suspect they could possibly split the Mercedes this weekend. The Williams are rather ordinary on this high downforce circuit. Don't expect much. The McLarens looked good. Really. Nothing to choose between the two drivers, who both completed long programs without any glitches. The sound?Much better than expected. The GP 2 cars still sound a little better though. If F1 can raise the RPM's for next year then I will actually be quite pleased with the sounds of the modern F1 car. And I was a big critic.

F1 » Vettel stuns to win dramatic Hungarian GP

Well, that was an exciting race! This is the second GP in Hungary I have attended and clearly the best. The Ferrari start and control of the early part of the race clearly demonstrated they were better in race trim and Seb would likely have jumped the Mercedes duo even without the great start. Maldonado? Time for a new career. McLaren? Getting better quickly. Mid pack racing and passing on both Alonso's and Button's part. I had Grand Stand Gold seats directly across from the Ferrari garage. I highly doubt Kimi's fate has been sealed, based on the body language of Kimi, the mechanics, and the various bosses at Ferrari. All seemed relaxed and happy, and Kimi's race performance aaas great, until the failure. Again, if you can attend this race you must. The Hungaroring is a throw back to the past and it has a special feel to it. And Budapest and night is worth the trip too.

F1 » Rosberg baffled by qualifying issues

Ok, as some of you know, I am at the race and was there for the qualifying session. Things unfolded as I expected, with a few twists, however. Hamilton is in a class of his own at this track. Very confident, very fast and smooth in all sessions. Rosberg? Not. He is overdriving the car and I think he lost the mind game this weekend. Despite his statements I do not see him challenging for the win. I do see him fighting for second place with Vettel, who was quite impressive today. Kimii had a good day too but Seb is still qualifying that bit better. Ricciardo? The Red Bull rebounded from yesterday and he did well to split the Ferraris, and will join the battle for second. Finally, McLaren have had a good weekend with lots of laps and this weekend may seem them turn the corner. In a few races I think both Alonso and Button might be in Q3. Lowly ambitions, granted, but no longer fighting with Manor. But the best pilot of all? The guy flying the helicopter supplying all of the aerial shots.
