2015 Hungarian Grand Prix - Formula 1

Post by BWard on Thu Jul 23, 2015 6:37 am

Despite the recent passing of Jules Bianchi, the F1 show must go on to the Hungarian Grand Prix at the Hungaroring in Budapest, Hungary. Last year's race was an absolute thriller that saw Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo pull some amazing moves late in the race to pull off a fantastic victory. This year's F1 season has incredibly lacked in competitive racing, but maybe this could be the race that could turn it around as we head in the Summer Break.

In other news, there will be a minute's silence held on the grid, 15 minutes before the race in honor of Jules Bianchi. And Sauber have announced that both of their current drivers, Marcus Ericsson and Felipe Nasr will remain with the team for the 2016 season.

Gonna be the first Europe race i've stayed up for all year. Really intrigued how the networks that cover the series are gonna go with their tributes to Bianchi. Might be a good race since Hungary was good last year.

The Williams ride guessing game has been blown wide open with Nasr being announced as staying at Sauber.

Williams say they want Button if Bottas goes to Ferrari.

McLaren could block the move of Button to Williams, but I question why when they have a young driver in Vandoorne who is cruising to a GP2 title in his second season. If he doesn't end up in F1 after this year then there is something seriously wrong in the minds of McLaren et al.

Looking at Perez's crash, it seems rather unusual to suffer suspension failure when going over a kerb.

Also both Force India's won't run Free Practice 2 as a result of Perez's crash.

That was already clear when they benched Magnussen for this year.

I've heard that Lotus wants him, but the noticed that both Maldolan and Grosjean are back for 2016...So it's a big question to see where Vandoorne goes.

I'm sure Sainz could've matched or beat Verstappen if he was given a chance but it's good to see that 'ol Helmut still really cares about only one car.  Razz

Good win for Vettel, good double podium for Red Bull, good double points finish for Mclaren, and a very exciting race it was.

Hell yeah Team Daniel!

Also Max Verstappen deserves a shoutout, it's not often you see a Toro Rosso get a top 5.

Between the crashes, penalties, collisions, mechanical failures, more collisions and more penalties. This was a great race and a great boost for Ferrari and Red Bull. And definitely the boost the F1 community needed after a tough week.

Feel like an idiot for skipping this in favour of the Spa 24 Hours, will have to watch highlights later finally a race really worth watching as like last year.

Motorsport.com wrote:Lotus driver Pastor Maldonado accumulates six penalty points after being awarded two for causing a collision with Force India's Sergio Perez.

"They were very strict on driving," said Maldonado, who was given three penalties today.
The quote made me laugh.
Also Hamilton got 2 for the Ricciardo incident,
Kvyat got 2 for overtaking off the track,
and the Child got 3 for "Failing to stay above the required time set by the FIA ECU during the deployment of the safety car." But none for causing Bottas to drop out of the points.... He now has 5 for this year.

Well, that was fun. The stewards were giving away penalties like candy, though I am not at all surprised that Maldonado managed to rack up three in one race. Laughing

I'd also found it kinda funny that Lewis Hamilton was blaming everyone else for incidents he brought upon himself. For example: When he went off-roading on Lap 1 and blamed Nico Rosberg for chopping him off? He didn't chop you off, Hammy, you locked up and blew the corner all by yourself. People used to say that Hamilton drives as if he were playing a video game, and I don't know if people do still say that, but it sure showed either way today.

Overall, easily the best race of the season for Formula One. Albeit several different kinds of crazy, but nevertheless a fun race to watch.

And I can't help but think, how fitting is it that a Ferrari wins the week after someone who had been associated with them for so long had passed away? Good win, Seb. Wink

Saw the 2nd half of the race. It was awesome, yet messy at the same time. Congrats to Vettel on winning, and the two Daniels on the podium. Impressive. And Versteppen deserves a holler for his 4th place. A good showing for F1 after dealing with a devestating blow last week with Bianchi.

I am in no way a Hamilton supporter - but that was the only time he ever did that. After the race, he more or less said that he didn't deserve any points - which was true. Unfortunately, all the unreliability then happened, and then of course Rosberg decided that puncturing his tyre on Ricciardo's front wing was a rad thing to do... still an awesome race though.

First time in a long time both Mercs got passed cleanly, and they react by hitting the car that passes them, but still blames the other car. Shows how petulant both drivers are when things are less than 99.998% perfect for them.
