FORMULA 1
HUNGARIAN GRAND-PRIX
Hungaroring, Budapest
Sunday, August 1st 2021

 


•    Alpine driver Esteban Ocon took his first ever Formula 1 win at a dramatic Hungarian Grand Prix, which originally started with all the field (apart from Alfa Romeo's Antonio Giovinazzi) on Cinturato Green intermediates in wet conditions. A collision at the first corner brought out a red flag, during which teams were allowed to change tyres and repair any damage.


•    Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton, who led the field away for the re-start, was the only competitor to keep the intermediates and start from the grid, while all the other drivers came into the pits for medium tyres. Hamilton then pitted for mediums too at the end of the first racing lap following the re-start, rejoining last but eventually finishing third after an early switch to hard followed by a final run on mediums.


•    Ocon effectively re-started on the P Zero Yellow medium C3 tyre after the second formation lap and then switched to the P Zero White hard C2 on lap 37, one lap after Aston Martin's Sebastian Vettel, who finished a close second on an identical strategy.


•    After record-breaking temperatures on Friday and warm conditions yesterday, the weather completely changed today with rain and 28 degrees ambient, plus 32 degrees of track temperature at the start of the race. The track then warmed up considerably after few laps, peaking at 40 degrees of asphalt temperature.




HOW EACH TYRE PERFORMED

 


•    HARD C2: Used by most drivers for the second part of the race, with some drivers completing nearly 50 laps on this compound.


•    MEDIUM C3: The first driver to use the medium was Giovinazzi, who gambled on moving to a slick after the original formation lap. Everyone then used the medium after the re-start, with Hamilton and Red Bull's Max Verstappen selecting it also for the final stint. Alpine's Fernando Alonso went furthest on it, completing a 36-lap opening stint.


•    SOFT C4: Alfa Romeo's Kimi Raikkonen and AlphaTauri's Pierre Gasly were the only drivers to use the soft during the race, for the final stint. Gasly claimed an extra championship point by virtue of setting fastest lap with it. The unpredictable nature of the race favoured the harder compounds, which were able to provide better graining resistance.




FORMULA 3: RACE 2 AND RACE 3

 

Matteo Nannini claimed victory in Saturday afternoon's second 22-lap race. The HWA Racelab driver made a strong start from third on the grid to take second at the first corner and then moved into the lead on lap four. In 45 degrees of track temperature, managing the P Zero Yellow compound was vital.


Sunday's race was very different, getting underway in the wet behind the safety car with all the field on the Cinturato Blue wet tyres (only one wet-weather tyre is available for Formula 3). Prema's Dennis Hauger, who started from second on the grid, overhauled his pole-sitting team mate Arthur Leclerc to extend his championship lead.


Towards the end of the race the track dried and Nannini gambled on a move to slicks, but although he was much quicker than the drivers remaining on wets, he was affected by a safety car and ran out of laps to make the difference. Nonetheless, the wet tyres stood up well to a wide variety of wet and dry conditions.






MARIO ISOLA – HEAD OF F1 AND CAR RACING



 
"Even before the race start it was hard to make any predictions, so the race began as a complete step into the unknown today, with the drivers having no reference point for the conditions they faced this afternoon. The amount of water meant that the intermediates were the clear choice to originally start the race with, but with the track drying rapidly following the red flag delay, it effectively became a dry race after the re-start.


If we just consider this as the 'real' race, some drivers selected a medium-hard one-stopper while others like Hamilton and Verstappen – who were running out of position due to the unusual race circumstances – went for a two-stop 'sprint' strategy. Congratulations to Esteban Ocon and Alpine for their first win."
