Hungary Preview Quotes: Jordan

Narain Karthikeyan: "Budapest is a new track for me again this season. It seems not to have many fast corners so I am not sure whether it will suit my driving style or not. Besides, apparently, it is quite difficult to overtake there, therefore it is very important to do well in qualifying. I have tried to learn the circuit on TV and on computer games as well. So basically I know where it goes. It could also be a difficult race because the weather tends to be always hot and humid, which makes it physically challenging."

Hungary Preview Quotes: Jordan

Tiago Monteiro: "I raced in Budapest in 2002 in F3000. I really liked the track at the time and now I am really curious to drive there in a Formula One car. The atmosphere is always great in this eastern country, the public is real fans of F1 and the show is always big. The Hungaroring is quite technical and it could suit our cars a bit more than on circuits with high speed corners. It is also often very hot there, so we will have to be well-prepared for that as well."

Adrian Burgess - Sporting Director: "The Hungaroring is quite a challenging track for Jordan Grand Prix for a few different reasons. Like Monaco it is a high downforce circuit, so the aerodynamic package is important here. Secondly, there are not many opportunities to overtake, so a good qualifying position on the grid is more important than usual. The weather conditions also play an important role, as it is generally always very hot here, therefore maximum cooling will be required on the cars. Another factor will be the right choice of Bridgestone tyres, as this can be very dusty circuit."

The mistakes Red Bull cannot afford to repeat in F1 2021’s title fight climax

OPINION: Red Bull has had Formula 1’s fastest package for most of 2021, but in several of the title run-in events it has wasted the RB16B’s potential. It cannot afford to do so again with Lewis Hamilton motoring back towards Max Verstappen in the drivers’ standings with two rounds remaining
