Honda not satisfied: Qualifying results less than ideal

Qualifying results for the Honda cars are not ideal in Hungary. Pierre Gasly got a strong result, but Red Bull Racing had to settle for P3 and P4, as Mercedes locked out the front row.

"Once again today, ambient and track temperatures were very high, although slightly lower than yesterday. This afternoon, three of our cars made it into Q3 and the Red Bull Racing Honda cars will both line up on the second row of the grid. However, with the two Mercedes ahead of us, this qualifying result is less than ideal," commented Toyoharu Tanabe on the official website of Honda.

Alpha Tauri achieved a strong result with Pierre Gasly. "For Scuderia AlphaTauri, Pierre produced a fantastic performance to qualify fifth, which is a good comeback after the disappointment of Silverstone. Unfortunately, Yuki did not manage to put it all together and will start from 16th tomorrow."

Hungaroring is a tricky circuit

"A short track length means that the drivers face a tough 70 laps tomorrow, but hopefully all four Honda drivers can move up the order, even if overtaking is difficult here," Tanabe finished. Things could also get interesting with the different strategies between Mercedes and Red Bull.
