âAs you know, this has been a special place for me for some time. I won my first grand prix here back in 2006 â it was one of those day when everything seemed to go my way â and I won my 200th grand prix here. That was an emotional day â and it was back in 2011 â I canât believe it was nearly 60 races ago.
âThe Hungaroring is a great track. Everybody thinks of it as a slow circuit, but, out the back, itâs got some pretty decent corners â Turn Four requires some serious commitment, and itâs made harder because it has a blind apex. Equally, the sequence of S-bends that make up Turns Eight to 11 are really satisfying to drive.
âNonetheless, itâs still a circuit where you require lots of downforce and grip, and I think we are making positive steps in that direction.â
