Default 2010 F1 Budapest - Hungaroring Grand Prix

Practice 1 FRI 13:30

Practice 2 FRI 17:30

Practice 3 SAT 14:30

Qualifying SAT 17:30

Race SUN 17:30


Similar to Monaco, the Hungaroring circuit is a tight and twisty race track at which the drivers have to manage 14 slow speed corners over just one 4.3 km lap. Combined with some of the shortest straights on the calendar, a maximum downforce package and a well balanced car are essential to achieve a competitive lap time.

1) Again Karun Chandok will sit idle, while Sakun Yamamoto fills in for his place

2) Mercedes GP and Schumacher wants to have a fresh perspective for the coming weekend.

3) Former F1 driver, Jacques Villeneuve is rumored to make a comeback by 2011

My predictions

1) Hamilton
2) Webber
3) Button
4) Vettel
5) Alonso
6) Michael Schumacher
7) Nico Roseberg
8) Fillipe Massa
9) Robert Kubica
10) Adrian Sutil

Hope Ferrari will put extra wheel nuts on Fernando's car to keep them secure - Hungaroring and the wheel nuts on Alonso's car have very special connection

Looks like a straight fight between Red Bull and Ferrari. I think Redbull will come on tops, their car suites such circuits.
McLaren need to up their game now. Have they "blown" their blown diffuser.
Typically ciscuits like Hungaroring suite McLaren, but this time around their car is too edgy to work well there. I think the only circuit where they would excel would be Monza.

Default Ferrari

Great Comeback from Ferrari las week and surely this week they are going to do the same.
Ferrari have not done the same what mercedes were doing.For every race mercedes were upgrading and the result is getting up and down.

but Ferrari did all R&D and only they have set the upgrades after 4 or 5 races.They are very strong now.

Looking forward for Michael.Ross Brawn try for something different.

Without refuelling i dont think the races are much more interesting.Every race they are pitting once(Normally) and we could not find the race very interesting at all.

Nope,I explicitly mentioned Alonso.

Twice,in 2006 and in 2009,while leading the race at the Hungaroring,Alonso's wheel nuts snapped ending his charge.

It was a sight to watch him returning to pit in 3 wheels last year

You're talking of springs, he's talking of wheel nuts. Anyway, hopefully every part of the cars stay on

Did anyone notice the Lord Venkateswara's paper weight placed on a bunch of currencies in the Force India Garage? This was shown during the break between Q2 and Q3. The camera shows Sutil talking to another team member and then camera man moves to show a small case placed with loads of currencies and on top of them is the paper weight.

Guess Mallya needs all the luck and blessings for this weekend!

Watch the replay for this one!!

Darn I missed it! Heard Mallaya goes to Sabrimala every year. Maybe take Sutil and Tonio this time?

I noticed it and I was very actually very happy .

About the race, The Red Bulls were about a sec faster than the next car on the grid, Alonso's Ferrari. If there is no drama in the start, we can see the Red Bulls almost lapping everyone.

Force India seem to be slipping. Anyway, the next two races, Belgium and Italy should suit them the most. Meanwhile they are falling behind Williams.

Brilliant race, Webber truly deserved the victory.
Tough luck for Vettel for his drive through penalty.
Good job by Alonso, he really soaked up the pressure till the end.
Michael almost caused a major crash in the dying moments of the race. Bad move!!

RedBulls were really fast, they deserved a 1-2 finish, but for the penalty.

Brilliant drive from Webber. Made most of the car's pace to negate the safety car handicap. An outstanding effort from Alonso to put Ferrari in second place ahead of a much faster Red-Bull. Vettel getting his share of luck from the stewards with Massa having a solid drive from 4th place. McLaren getting their share of mechanical troubles and Button couldn't do anything at all about the Sauber.

And the tire strikes again, this time with Rosberg!

Going to be an awesome race to the WDC and WCC. Should be interesting to see what developments are the teams going to bring to Spa.

Schumi had another disappointing race but had a great fight with Barrichello in the end holding off a car almost two seconds faster and on fresh tires.
