Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes)
Sieger
Schnellste Runde: 1:18.528
Ich bin nun schon seit sieben Jahren bei diesem Team, aber von diesem Gefühl kann ich einfach nie genug bekommen. Ohne die Unterstützung aller hier an der Strecke und Zuhause in der Fabrik wäre das heute nicht möglich gewesen. Ich bin unheimlich dankbar, ein Teil des Ganzen sein zu dürfen, und dafür, dass das Team weiterhin an mich glaubt, die Grenzen auslotet und Risiken eingeht. Wir hatten heute ein wenig mit den Bremsen zu kämpfen. Deshalb versuchte ich, sie so viel wie möglich dafür zu schonen, wenn sich eine Chance auf ein Überholmanöver gegen Max ergeben sollte. Es war richtig schwierig, an ihm vorbeizukommen. Ich war mir nicht sicher, ob ich den 19-Sekunden-Rückstand würde schließen können. Aber das Team sagte, dass ich es versuchen sollte und das habe ich gemacht. Ich habe weiter alles gegeben, die Lücke geschlossen und bin Runden wie im Qualifying gefahren. Ich war die gesamte Zeit am Limit. Ich ziehe meinen Hut vor dem Team und ich glaube, wenn Niki heute hier gewesen wäre, hätte auch er seine Kappe vor ihnen gezogen.
Max Verstappen (Red Bull Racing)
2.Platz
Schnellste Runde: 1:17.103
“We gave it our all but Lewis was clearly a bit faster than us today. It was nice to see that we had such a big gap to the others though and second is still a good result. It wasn’t our day in terms of pace but overall it was a good weekend and getting pole position was a great step. Of course, when you start at the front you want to win but you also have to be realistic and to finish second with the fastest lap was the most that we could do. I tried to keep Lewis behind when we were on the same tyres but because of the gap to third, he had the option to do a second stop which worked out for him. I was trying to survive out front and push on my tyres but when he was closing in by one or two seconds per lap there wasn’t much I could do. He closed so quickly on the fresh tyres that I wasn’t surprised he managed to get past. We then pitted to get the fastest lap, which is one extra point, and I’m of course happy to get that. No regrets and we tried everything we could. It was a good weekend for us and I go into the break with a good feeling as we’re getting closer all the time.”
Sebastian Vettel (Ferrari)
3.Platz
Schnellste Runde: 1:19.786
“We leave Hungary and for a few weeks we can console ourselves with the fact that we made it to the podium in a race in which we knew we were going to struggle. Today, we simply could not match the pace of our rivals. In terms of strategy, the idea was to come up with something different to try and do better than fourth. I managed to extend the first stint to 39 laps and that allowed me to fit Softs and have a stronger pace than Charles in the closing stages. Now we can recharge our batteries and prepare to battle once more in Spa and Monza, tracks where we ought to be more competitive. We know there is still some performance to come from the SF90 and we have to work on that, but I am convinced that there is a margin to get better results.”
Charles Leclerc (Ferrari)
4.Platz
Schnellste Runde: 1:20.493
“Arriving in Hungary we knew it would be a tough race for us, and it was. The beginning of the first stint wasn’t bad, but as the race progressed, I started to struggle with my rear tyres more and more and could not match the pace of our competitors. My target now is to understand how to improve this, especially over long runs and on circuits where the degradation is high. I look forward to returning to racing after the break so that we can continue working on making further improvements and give our competitors a good challenge.”
Carlos Sainz Jr. (McLaren F1 Team)
5.Platz
Schnellste Runde: 1:21.002
“Yes! This time, P5 tastes much better than the P5 of seven days ago. We executed the race perfectly. We had a great start, great pace and, in a fairly normal race, we managed to score a top-five finish. Holding Gasly behind in the second stint was intense, but I controlled the pace to counter-attack any opportunity he had to get closer and managed to finish ahead of a Red Bull on pure pace. “I really want to thank and congratulate every single member of the team, here and back at the factory. I think these first dozen races show how much progress we’ve made this season, and we now need to keep digging. The ambition is to get closer and closer. Everyone can be proud of how things are going and the consistency we’re achieving. To keep learning in the second half of the season is important to try to build a better car for next year and take another step. Now it’s time to recharge the batteries and come back even stronger. Thank you team, enjoy a well-deserved summer break!”
Pierre Gasly (Red Bull Racing)
6.Platz
Schnellste Runde: 1:21.045
“It was a difficult race right from the beginning. We had a poor start which didn’t make life easy, and after that I just tried to attack as much as I could but I was sliding everywhere and struggling with grip. I was in a bit of a sandwich in Turn 1, then I was quite close with Kimi in Turn 2 so I lost a lot of time at the start which didn’t help my race. The weekend started pretty well and Friday was good, we were happy with FP1 and FP2, but from Saturday I have just struggled for grip. We finished the race P6 and scored some points but for sure it was not the amount we wanted. It’s good for everyone to have a break now and switch off. I will relax and review the first half of the season, I will look at what went well and what could have been better so I come back sharper and stronger for the second half and make sure we score more points.”
Kimi Räikkönen (Alfa Romeo)
7.Platz
Schnellste Runde: 1:20.880
“Well, that was quite good. The car behaved great, I did a good job in the first lap and stayed out of trouble and then we had even better speed than the McLaren, but it was impossible to overtake. We lost one position at the pit stop but also gained one, so that’s a bit of a shame, but overall I can’t be too disappointed. I’ll take the points and move on. Look forward to spending the summer break with my family, but I’m also happy for all the people in the team, as they work incredibly hard and deserve some time off.”
Valtteri Bottas (Mercedes)
8.Platz
Schnellste Runde: 1:19.331
Heute war ein schwieriger Tag für mich. Ganz und gar nicht, was ich erwartet hatte. Die erste Runde war ein wenig chaotisch. Ich verbremste mich in Kurve 1 - das war mein Fehler. Ich wollte so spät und stark wie möglich bremsen, aber mein rechtes Vorderrad blockierte und ich handelte mir einen Bremsplatten ein. Dadurch bekam ich etwas Untersteuern und dann kam es zur Berührung mit Charles, bei der mein Frontflügel beschädigt wurde. In Folge dessen mussten wir früh an die Box kommen, was mein gesamtes Rennen beeinträchtigt hat. Danach kam ich im Verkehr wieder heraus und verlor sehr viel Zeit. Ich habe alles gegeben, aber das Überholen war richtig schwierig. Wenigstens habe ich noch ein paar Punkte eingefahren. Jetzt werden wir genau analysieren, was passiert ist und daraus unsere Lehren ziehen.
Lando Norris (McLaren F1 Team)
9.Platz
Schnellste Runde: 1:21.188
“A good start, where I came up to a lot of the guys ahead, which was good. I got past Gasly straight away but I knew Carlos was somewhere on the inside, so I played it safe and gave him plenty of space. With hindsight, I think I could’ve stayed ahead but I didn’t want to take the risk. “P7 in the first stint was alright, following Carlos the whole way. Then we did our pit-stop and I think the left rear was a bit slow. We lost all of our positions there, basically. The pace was good but the Mercedes was a bit quicker at the end. Apart from that it was an alright race.”
Alexander Albon (Toro Rosso)
10.Platz
Schnellste Runde: 1:20.621
“I had quite a good race today. My first stint was average, and I didn’t feel very comfortable with the Medium tyres, it felt like I had almost no grip at all, but once I went onto the Hard tyres the car came alive again. I had two nice fights with Dany, the first one was much closer than the second one! It was good fun and it was fair racing. I think P10 was the best we could achieve today, so we have to be pleased. Now I’ve got time to relax a bit, review the season so far and understand where I need to improve to be ready for the second half of the year.”
Sergio Pérez (Racing Point)
11.Platz
Schnellste Runde: 1:21.734
“I think today was definitely a race of which we can be proud. We did a fantastic race - a good start, great first lap, very aggressive strategy to undercut two cars and then pushing to the limit all the way through. Right at the end Albon came up behind me quickly and we made contact, which damaged my suspension. I was really struggling in the last three or four laps - it was a challenge just to finish in P11. We were expecting a difficult race, but we were in the fight for a point until the very end – unfortunately we just didn't get it. We gave it everything out there, so I'm happy with that. Hopefully the second half of the season will be more promising for us.”
Nico Hülkenberg (Renault F1 Team)
12.Platz
Schnellste Runde: 1:21.650
“It was a difficult afternoon for us today. We struggled with the car, with an engine control issue from the beginning of the race, which meant I lost consistently three tenths a lap. That made things tricky and we just didn’t have the pace to progress into the points. It’s a good time for a break. As a team we will regroup, think a few things over because we need to up our game in the second part of the season.”
Kevin Magnussen (Haas F1 Team)
13.Platz
Schnellste Runde: 1:21.008
“The car was okay in the race today, not too bad at least, for our level. Considering the problems we’ve had this year, it was pretty quick race pace – not good race pace, but compared to ourselves in the past. I’m happy we’re headed into the summer break now, we all are in the team, everyone’s ready for the break. We’ll come back stronger.”
Daniel Ricciardo (Renault F1 Team)
14.Platz
Schnellste Runde: 1:20.839
“It was always going to be tough starting at the back of the grid, but there were some positive moments. We made the Hard tyres last well and then had good pace on the Soft tyre towards the end. It was frustrating not to get past Magnussen. I felt he was moving under braking, and I couldn’t do anything. I wasn’t happy about that as we could have progressed even further at the end. There are some positives and the summer break will be good for us. We’ll reset, take some time off, we know we’re in it together and we’ll be targeting a better second-half of the season.”
Daniil Kvyat (Toro Rosso)
15.Platz
Schnellste Runde: 1:21.932
“It was an interesting race and I think it could have been a good day, but unfortunately, we pitted too early and my tyres hit the cliff with around 15 laps to go. Once you hit the cliff it’s game over, so the strategy didn’t work out for us today. It was a nice battle with Alex when we were both on the same tyres, I managed to overtake him and it was very good fun, but after that in the last few laps when my tyres were completely gone it wasn’t enjoyable anymore. Having said that, I’m quite happy with the way I drove and I got everything I could out of the car. It’s just a shame we weren’t able to bring home the points.”
George Russell (Williams)
16.Platz
Schnellste Runde: 1:22.386
Yesterday definitely exceeded expectations, so it was a little bit back to reality today. I had a good first lap and made up two positions on Magnussen and Kvyat at turn four and five, which was pretty fun. It was nice to be racing other drivers. We’ve still got work to do but there are a lot of positives to take from this weekend. We’ve made a good step forward.
Lance Stroll (Racing Point)
17.Platz
Schnellste Runde: 1:20.603
“There’s not much to say about this weekend, which is a shame. I had a bad start and didn’t make up any ground on the first lap, which is so important here at the Hungaroring. I was stuck behind the Williams of Russell for the whole race so that pretty much sums up my afternoon. We knew this track was going to be difficult for us – because of our car characteristics – plus it’s not easy to overtake here. That’s why it was a frustrating race. We will use the break to regroup and come back fighting in Belgium: a track that should be much more suited to our car.”
Antonio Giovinazzi (Alfa Romeo)
18.Platz
Schnellste Runde: 1:23.134
“It was a very disappointing race for me today. I had contact on the opening lap, when I was squeezed between two cars at turn one, and I had an issue with my first set of tyres that meant I had to cut my first stint much shorter than we were planning. It was a shame to end the first part of the season like this, especially because we had shown good pace in recent races, but it was another day in which we didn’t manage to turn our potential into points. At least we have some holidays now – a chance to hit reset during the summer break and come back to do much better in the second part of the season. The first half of my season hasn’t been ideal, but I can take heart from the improvement we had. It’s been a rollercoaster but I’ll keep working hard to improve.”
Robert Kubica (Williams)
19.Platz
Schnellste Runde: 1:23.436
The race was as expected. We had to manage the tyres to get to the end with a one-stop strategy. The feeling wasn’t great in the car, similar to yesterday. After the break we have completely different tracks, we will have to wait and see if we are able to close the gap, like George was able to do here. It is amazing to see how many people from Poland came here. I would like to thank them for the great atmosphere and hope that they go home with good memories, as I will do.
Romain Grosjean (Haas F1 Team)
Ausgefallen
Schnellste Runde: 1:22.809
“I was happy with the beginning of the race. The car felt okay on softs, I was holding everyone behind. That’s something we knew from the race pace and I was happy with that. Then we fitted the hard tire, which we hadn’t really run over the weekend, and I think today you didn’t want to be on the hard tire. There was no grip and it was impossible to warm them up. Ultimately we had a water pressure issue and had to retire the car anyway.”
