2021 FORMULA 1 HUNGARIAN GRAND PRIX
Hungaroring, Budapest
30 July - 1 August 2021




Esteban Ocon made a return to the points in Silverstone to end a four-race point-less streak. Now, he is looking ahead to racing at the Hungaroring, one of his favourite circuits on the Formula 1 calendar. The Frenchman is targeting more points before the summer break.




What’s the feeling heading to Hungary?



The Hungaroring is one of my favourite tracks on the Formula 1 calendar. It’s a great place to drive a Formula 1 car as it has a nice flow and rhythm to it: it’s all about maximising corners and piecing everything together.


I’m feeling happy going to Hungary after a promising weekend in Silverstone where the car felt much better than it had in previous rounds.


The team and I have continued to work hard in our preparation on the simulator to be ready for Hungary. It’s the final round before the summer break, and the aim is to score more points to end the first part of the season on a positive trend.





What’s your record like there?

I have some good memories from the Hungaroring. I won two from three races there in 2014 in Formula 3 with three pole positions. In GP3, I was on the podium twice, so it’s definitely a circuit I feel positive about.


 In Formula 1, the results haven’t reflected my confidence at the track, so that’s a record I want to improve. This year, we will target a solid Friday’s work ready to attack the rest of the weekend.




How challenging is a lap of the Hungaroring?



The circuit is fast with a lot of interesting corner combinations. It’s a fun lap when you get it right. Sector 1 has the long straight with an overtaking opportunity into Turn 1 and then again at Turn 2 where it’s possible to overtake.


Turn 4 is a very satisfying corner as it’s so fast and blind on the entry. The rest of the lap is relatively fast and quite twisty, except the chicane, with the final sector quite tight with the two hairpins. The tyres tend to overheat in the final sector so that’s something we have to keep an eye on.





How important was it to be in the points in Silverstone last time out?



I was pleased to return to the points in Silverstone after a difficult run of races. It was important that we bounced back and our performance, in general, was good. I think the Sprint format worked in our favour on this occasion as we took a gamble by starting on Softs and it meant we were better placed on the Sunday grid.


I was a little unfortunate at the start but other than that, our pace was competitive, we have identified further areas to work on and that means we’re feeling ready to go for it this weekend in Hungary. I’m looking forward to it!
