Hungary preview quotes: Red Bull

Mark Webber: "Hungary is always a good grand prix, with a good atmosphere - I think it's one that most of the drivers enjoy. I love Budapest as a city; it's a very beautiful place with a lot of nice restaurants and places to go out. The track is pretty short and very technical, so it's a busy lap for us. There are limited places for overtaking, so we'll see how the DRS helps with that this year. The Hungaroring should suit our car well, we were very strong there last year and more of the same this year would be good. It's another opportunity for us to get some good points and it's always nice to finish before the break with a strong result so lets see how we go."

Sebastian Vettel: "The Hungarian GP is one of the hardest for the drivers. It can get very hot in the cockpit due to the high-temperatures, which means we lose a lot of body fluid during the race. There are a lot of bumps on the track, which means you can get shaken up a bit and, because the track has hardly any straights, you have almost no chance to 'rest' that's what makes the Hungarian Grand Prix so exhausting. There are three extremely slow corners and it's pretty hard to overtake there, while on the start and finish lines we reach a top speed of 315kph. We get a good shaking through the first corner due to the bumps; it's the only place where you can really overtake, so long as you come out of the last corner well and get in the slipstream of the car in front. The last two corners are important, because you have to prepare for a potential overtaking manoeuvre. In the last corner, you have to wait, wait, wait... then you can drive over the kerbs and go full throttle."
