Esteban Ocon (5th on the Hungarian Grand Prix gridAlpine): “We have to watch and try to understand why we won so many times during this qualifying session. Before, I think we really weren’t super comfortable. Honestly, Friday we tried a lot of things.
It’s a very good result to start in the top 5 tomorrow (sunday) … I’ve never started from so high, so it’s great. But it was a weekend that took a little energy from us, we scratched our heads trying to find performance and today (Saturday) it paid off. »
Pierre Gasly (19th, AlphaTauri): “I’m disgusted because it was a really good lap that allowed us to go into Q2, we were in 13th position. I haven’t seen the footage yet but when we tried to watch we didn’t have the right cameras so we couldn’t see exactly. This afternoon, I’m doing a really good lap.
We knew that on the predictions before qualifying we thought we were 17th and 16th, I manage to do the 13th time so it was really good. Since the start of the season, there have been a lot of stories with the track limits. I don’t know how much it was played for but it’s sure that if it was played for a question of five centimeters, it’s a shame. »
