Brendon Hartley - Hungarian Grand Prix - F1

Brendon Hartley was disappointed to leave the Hungaroring with no points as he felt he made “no mistakes” during the race.

The New Zealander finished eleventh, just missing out on the points and was annoyed not to score points after a strong qualifying performance on Saturday.

“I’m disappointed not to score points after a strong qualifying.” he said.

Hartley feels the start played a big role in him missing out on points as he spent his first stint stuck behind the Renault Sport Formula One Team of Carlos Sainz Jr.

“I had a great start but decided not to dive up the inside of Gasly which ultimately lost me a place to Magnussen.

“My race was then destroyed as I was stuck behind Sainz during the first half of the race when he was on a harder tyre.”

Red Bull Toro Rosso Honda split their strategies and Hartley understands why but is annoyed that his didn’t work out.

“We then reacted too early to Hulkenberg pitting behind and putting the Medium tyre, which didn’t give me the best performance.

“I fully understand why the team split the strategies but today it didn’t work out for me.

“I made no mistakes, I had a good start but unfortunately no points to show for it.”

Hartley’s team-mate Pierre Gasly came home sixth and Hartley was happy that the team got some reward from the race.

“I’m happy for the team to score more points which is a nice reward for all the hard work over the last months.”
