Charles Leclerc (Ferrari) 3rd in qualifying for the Hungarian GP: “It was not a good day”

Charles Leclerc (3rd in qualifying for the Hungarian Grand PrixFerrari): “Today was not a good day. (Saturday). I had a lot of difficulty with the tyres, a lot of irregularities to put them in the right window with these conditions. So I had a hard time putting a butt turn on but we’ll look into that.

I especially had difficulties in the first attempt in Q3. I changed the outlap a little for the second attempt, it was a little better but there was still something wrong. The grip was extremely inconsistent and I struggled to just do a drinkable lap. I’m sure we’ve got the pace to be a bit more forward tomorrow (sunday).

So we will focus on that and hopefully our Sunday will be better. The pace is there so we have to understand what happened with the tyres. I’m sure we can go back tomorrow (sunday). »

Carlos Sainz (2nd, Ferrari): “I felt better and better after each run and in qualifying I felt like I had the pace to take pole. I had a few oversteers in the last sector, congratulations to George (Russell) because he did a very good lap and we will start 2nd tomorrow (sunday).

We have the rhythm, of course there is the start and the tire management to take into consideration as always. Mercedes’ pace is a little bit unknown, we’ll see how their race pace will be. We will first get off to a good start and that should promise us an exciting race. »

Lewis Hamilton (7th, Mercedes): “It’s super exciting, I’m very happy for the team. It’s huge for us to be on pole. Kudos to George (Russell). I’m going to do what I have to do and try to come back up as much as possible. I have one of the hardest cars to overtake in front of me, it will be complicated tomorrow (sunday). »

Sebastian Vettel (18th, Aston Martin): “The balance of the car has changed but when you talk about less than a tenth it means that not much has happened. It’s just a shame, not fast enough. I think the team did a really good job fixing the car after what happened to me this (Saturday) morning. Congratulations to them and it would have been nice to continue. »
