Marcus Ericsson: “The Hungaroring is a difficult circuit”

1 Mins read

Marcus Ericsson hopes the Swedish support is out in force this weekend at the Hungarian Grand Prix as the Sauber F1 Team driver looks to secure his first points since the third race of the season in China back in April.

Ericsson feels the Hungaroring track is a difficult circuit, and expects a big challenge this weekend with tyre management due to the high temperatures usually faced at this time of the year in Hungary.

“The Hungaroring is a difficult circuit – a small track, quite narrow, also bumpy, with a lot of corners,” said Ericsson.

“Budapest and its surroundings usually have extremely hot temperatures at the end of July, therefore, we require good tyre management and need to make sure they are working in the right way. That will be one of the big challenges. We have to see in practice how competitive we are on this type of track with the car.

“As far as I know a lot of Swedish fans are coming to the race, including more than a dozen friends of mine. So it will be nice seeing a lot of Swedish people around the track, and hopefully they can help to push me even more.”
