The last Grand Prix of Hungary was not conducive to Force India. In 2015, both Sergio Perez as Nico Hülkenberg were forced to leave. A bad memory that now seek to clear with a good result at the Hungaroring to extend the good moment of the team and they may be closer to fourth place in the table of Constructors, which now occupies Williams and that separate them 19 points.
The sixth place of Sergio Perez and the seventh of Nico Hülkenberg at Silverstone was the best result in the history of the team in his home race. Of face for the Hungarian Grand Prix this weekend, the eleventh round of the season, the performance of the car in the last few races makes their director, Vijay Mallya, be optimistic and trust in return to get a good reward.
I’m very proud of what we had in Silverstone, our best score in a Grand Prix of Great Britain, and our pace during the weekend, especially during the race, makes me think that, with half a season ahead, there is no reason why we can’t add many points at each Grand Prix, that is what we must do to fight for the fourth position. Hungaroring is totally different to Silverstone, but we have worked hard to improve the car in curves, average and slow and I think that we should go well this weekend.
Sergio Perez, after adding 39 points in the last five races has been encouraged to the eighth square in the general classification, and does not forget the bad luck suffered by the team in 2015 in the path magyar, a track that he has done exceedingly well at the individual level since that is in the Formula 1. But the mexican is confident this time in a different outcome.
I’ve Never had much luck in Hungary, so I hope this year I go the better. We have been strong in recent races and now we come to a circuit that is totally different, with few overtaking opportunities and, after Monaco, where it has more the position on the track, so that the classification will be important. It’s going to be a tough weekend, but I think that we will be competitive.
, Nico Hülkenberg also extracts positive consequences of the last race of face for the Grand Prix of Hungary and the rest of the season.
it Was good to re-rate, although if some circumstances, such as the safety-car virtual, you would have developed differently, could have added even more points. All in all, the car paid well and beat some fast cars with all of the law, which gives us great encouragement to Hungary and the remainder of the year.
