Starting almost from the end of the peleton - Sergio from P17, Lance from P19, the drivers obviously improved the results in the race, although couldn’t earn points.
After weak results over the weekend, Perez finally had a chance to reach a few points in the race. He started well, perfectly passed the first round, and the team has prepared a successful strategy. However, the battle with Albon complicated Sergio's way into the point zone - the drivers made a contact, which damaged the suspension of his car. So, in the last laps, Perez’ goal was just to finish.
"I think today was definitely a race of which we can be proud. We did a fantastic race - a good start, great first lap, very aggressive strategy to undercut two cars and then pushing to the limit all the way through. Right at the end Albon came up behind me quickly and we made contact, which damaged my suspension. I was really struggling in the last three or four laps - it was a challenge just to finish in P11."
The race of Lance Stroll proved to be difficult. He lost the start and then couldn’t improve. The main Stroll’s rival in the race was George Russell. But it didn’t work to overtake Russell, as this track is very difficult to overtake, and secondly, the characteristics of the Racing Point cars aren’t suitable for the Hungaroring.
"There’s not much to say about this weekend, which is a shame. I had a bad start and didn’t make up any ground on the first lap, which is so important here at the Hungaroring. I was stuck behind the Williams of Russell for the whole race so that pretty much sums up my afternoon. We knew this track was going to be difficult for us – because of our car characteristics – plus it’s not easy to overtake here. That’s why it was a frustrating race."
