Qualifying - Vettel eases to Budapest pole for Red Bull
Posted at on July 31, 2010 - Updated August 1, 2010

Sebastian Vettel was in a world of his own in qualifying as he thrust his Red Bull to a fastest time of 1m 18.773s, and his second-run lap of 1m 18.832s would have been sufficient to win him the pole too as team mate Mark Webber could not improve on his first effort of 1m 19.184s...

Qualifying analysis - relentless Red Bull unbeatable in Budapest?
Posted at on July 31, 2010

Nobody could hold a candle to Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel on Saturday in Hungary - not even team mate Mark Webber, who took a distant second to the German’s dominant pole time. Together the duo look pretty invincible for Sunday’s race, but there’s no doubt Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa in third and fourth, and fifth-placed McLaren driver Lewis Hamilton will do all they can to stop Red Bull having it all their own way in Budapest. We take a team-by-team look at the pre-race form...

Sebastian Vettel Q&A: A perfect lap - now I need a perfect start!
Posted at on August 1, 2010

Having just taken his fourth pole position in a row, there is no doubting Sebastian Vettel’s one-lap performance. While it’s true that he’s found it more difficult to convert those front-row starts into race wins, Vettel is confident that should all change in Sunday’s Hungarian Grand Prix. Considering the lead he had on Saturday over his team mate Mark Webber and the two Ferraris, few would disagree...

Race - Hungary win gives Webber title lead
Posted at on August 1, 2010

Mark Webber turned the Hungarian Grand Prix into a nail-biting gripper when a safety-car intervention on the 15th lap upset the form that Red Bull team mate Sebastian Vettel had established from the start.

The German sprinted into the lead from pole position, with Ferrari's Fernando Alonso bulling up to snatch second from Webber as Felipe Massa in the second scarlet car just held off Renault’s Vitaly Petrov and McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton...

FIA post-race press conference - Hungary
Posted at on August 1, 2010

1st Mark Webber (Red Bull), 1h41m05.571s; 2nd Fernando Alonso (Ferrari), 1h41m23.392s; 3rd Sebastian Vettel (Red Bull), 1h41m24.823s.

Q: Mark, a commanding win by the end of 70 laps. But it was probably the 43 you managed in your first stint that really set it up.
Mark Webber: Yeah, that’s right. The start we always knew was going to be a little bit tricky on that side. Fernando got a good start. Seb’s was pretty good as well. But we all jumped into the slipstream in the run to the first corner...

Mark Webber Q&A: A nice way to celebrate my 150th!
Posted at on August 1, 2010

Red Bull’s Mark Webber is looking forward to some relaxation in Formula One’s traditional summer break, spending some time with his dogs and avoiding planes and hotel rooms. And what better way to start that break than by winning your 150th Grand Prix and seeing yourself and your team take the lead in the championship...

Hungary race analysis - everything to play for
Posted at on August 2, 2010

The Hungarian Grand Prix not only put a victorious Mark Webber firmly back in the championship race, it left fans with the tantalising prospect of a genuine five-way fight for the title over the season’s final seven rounds, with just 20 points covering the leading contenders. Red Bull’s prodigious pace in Budapest might lead you to believe they are now favourites, but the RB6 is unlikely to be so perfectly suited to the remaining circuits as it was to the Hungaroring. We take a team-by-team look at Sunday’s form...

Sebastian Vettel Q&A: Hungary lapse already in the past
Posted at on August 2, 2010

Disappointment was written all over Sebastian Vettel’s face as he received his third place trophy on the Budapest podium. It should have been his race, but the Red Bull driver could not reap the rewards from his prior dominance of the weekend. He may have been angry at the time, but Vettel is not one to dwell on what might have been, and after a few days relaxing at home he’ll be concentrating on Spa...

Schumacher: I crossed the line with Barrichello move
Posted at on August 2, 2010

Michael Schumacher has admitted that his blocking of Rubens Barrichello in Sunday’s Hungarian Grand Prix was “too hard”. Schumacher almost edged Barrichello into the pit wall as he tried in vain to stop his former team mate passing him for P10 late in the race...
