Hamilton seeks more speed in Hungarian heat

30 July 2017, 01:27 | Jermaine Blake

Shocker: Lewis Hamilton's chances of taking pole took a hit with a sloppy mistake at the top of the hill at Turn 4. His teammate Kimi Raikkonen of Finland was placed second in 1:17.492, increasing the expectation of the Maranello-based team for the upcoming qualifying session. Other short odds to win are Sebastian Vettel (+300) and Valtteri Bottas (+350).

Ferrari had a terrible weekend in Silverstone last time around after both their drivers suffered tyre punctures late in the race.

Lewis Hamilton dominated the British Grand Prix two weeks ago, and in the process cut his points deficit to Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel to just a single point.

And that is in his opinion. I'm just going to enjoy it.

"I think that's the only way to succeed", he said.

"I think we need to look at the races".

"It's a track that you can be aggressive at", said Hamilton. "But it will be a long race and anything is possible".

Wolff said he believed Mercedes' drop in form compared with recent races was caused by the different nature of the Hungaroring track.

"I enjoy coming to Budapest as well, a handsome city, and the track is spectacular".

As for the Hungaroring, the circuit now joins an elite club of just nine other locations to have held more than 30 F1 grands prix.

Over in the Ferrari garage, the mood was one of jubilation as Vettel clinched the 48th pole of his career.

"We can't follow or overtake a auto that is as fast or faster", he said following Saturday's session, as per the BBC.

"The auto was fantastic today, it was really a pleasure to just go around", said Vettel after taking his 48th career pole on a hot afternoon at the Hungaroring.

Raikkonen was.168 behind in front of many flag-waving Finnish fans. "Clearly, we are not performing as we want".

Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo pulled up in final practice with gearbox troubles but returned to the track to finish qualifying sixth-fastest, one place behind team-mate Max Verstappen. That will raise McLaren's Fernando Alonso and Stoffel Vandoorne to seventh and eighth respectively.

Di Resta did only manage 19th spot on the grid, but considering he'd never driven the auto before it was a stoic performance.

He was an emergency late replacement for Felipe Massa, who pulled out after complaining of "dizzy" spells following Friday's practice.

Out in Q1 were Magnussen, Stroll, Wehrlein, di Resta and Ericsson.

"Big vibration on these tyres", he said, again, as he launched his first flying lap.

But with his father, Anthony, watching on, Hamilton shot to the top of the leaderboard right at the end of Q2, raising hopes of a pole.
