Spoiler Alert: The incredible P1 GTR Design Concept. Wonder where they got the inspiration for that rear wing…

Jenson’s thoughts following the Hungarian Grand Prix:

“I’m glad it was an exciting race for the fans, but it was a tough afternoon for us. We didn’t make the right decisions today.

The opening laps in the rain were great: I got up into fifth – which wasn’t a bad position for us – but it went downhill from there. As the track started to dry, we thought it was going to rain again – unfortunately, however, we were the only ones thinking that.

“I feel like I did everything right, and in every track condition, which is why it’s tough – but we win as a team and we lose as a team, and we’ll quickly put this behind us and move on.

“It’s the perfect time for the summer break – obviously, we’re not where we want to be, but we’ve had some positive results, and the whole team has worked incredibly hard throughout this first half of the season. I hope that everybody can get the chance to recharge their batteries before we embark on what we hope will be a better half of the season.”

Crazy race in Hungary, but it didn’t go our way. That’s motor racing. Half-time in the F1 season.

Jenson’s thoughts following yesterday’s #FP3 & #Qualifying:

“Until qualifying, it felt like it had been raining on me all weekend! Then, this afternoon, the car felt a lot better than it had in all the other sessions. That was a major positive.

“I think it’s the ‘never give up’ attitude of the guys in the garage: we’d been playing with the set-up all weekend – it’s better now, but there’s still more work needed.

“Into Q2, we had reasonable pace and I think we did well to take seventh, just a few hundredths behind sixth. Seventh is basically where we are.

“We don’t know what the weather will do tomorrow. In the dry, our long-run pace looks okay, but all the guys ahead of me are very quick, so we’ll see what we can do.

“I’m on the clean side of the grid, so I’ll be hoping for a good start.”

‘Happy Birthday Dad, it’s not the same down here without you… Miss you…. RIPPapa’

More mixed fortunes in today’s quali. We’ll be battling hard to score every point we can tomorrow. Team reaction here: http://tinyurl.com/p3z72a9

#FP3 & #Quali done!! Jenson starts tomorrow’s #HungarianGP in P7

Jenson’s thoughts following practice yesterday:

“I had a relatively good run on the soft tyre using high fuel, so I’m feeling happier about that, but the balance over a single lap is something we need to concentrate on tonight.

“It was quite difficult to be consistent; the car felt different from corner to corner, from lap to lap. I like a precise car, and we didn’t quite nail that today – but I think we know why that is and we’ll change it for tomorrow. I’m not too worried.

“Looking at the timesheets, it’s quite difficult to know where we stand – we’re not up there with the Mercedes or the Red Bulls, but the Williams cars seem a little less competitive compared to the last race.

“We still have a lot of work to do tonight.”

As the sun beats down on the Hungaroring, we’re teeing up for Quali. Come on McLaren. Stay tuned with McLaren LIVE:
