Max is excited about the result and relieved, as he ran on the track shortly after taking third from Leclerc and had to fight for center again.
“I was hoping to get close to the podium. It was very difficult conditions. We put in good strategies, we stopped well in the pits. In the end I still did a 360-degree spin, but I managed to win the race. The feud and it was a lot of fun.”
Leclerc wants explanations from Ferrari after the improper tire changes. Over the weekend in Hungary, drivers and teams realized that playing on hard tires was not effective in Hungary. Once Verstappen passed him at the end of the race, Monegasque complained over the radio: “These tires are so bad.”
“I don’t know why I was on hard tyres, I still don’t have the answer. The strategists were doing the work, I don’t understand, I’m waiting for the explanations. At first we had the right strategies the middle tyres were good and I had a good feeling.”
Lewis Hamilton was in disbelief for the good performance of Mercedes. Immediately after the race, the seven-time world champion said he didn’t know where the car’s speed came from during yesterday’s race and praised the team.
“I was definitely struggling at the start of the race and didn’t know if I would be able to catch up with the guys. But little by little I became more and more comfortable with a balance, and the start was good too. I want to appreciate my team, who continues to give their best, without giving up in the midst of this difficult year. So far, for us to be on the podium with both cars is a special thing for us.”
Russell came in third after starting first. Despite this, the young Briton showed satisfaction with his performance in Hungary.
“When it started dripping at first and we were on soft tyres, I thought victory was certain. We had a strong start and a good first job (up to the first stop), but with the medium tires and more rain, we really struggled. But we are making progress.”
