HRT preview the Hungarian GP

HRT preview the Hungarian GP

HRT reckon the slow nature of the Hungaroring will suit their F112 as they seek a "good result" before the summer break...

For all the latest F1 odds on the Hungarian Grand Prix, round ten of the 2012 F1 Championship, visit Sky Bet.

Pedro de la Rosa: "The Hungaroring is the permanent Monaco and a circuit where I have very good memories since I achieved a podium there in 2006. I'm really looking forward to going this year because it's a circuit where our car should adapt pretty well, as there are many slow corners. It's similar to Monaco, and we were pretty competitive there, so I'm full of hope. The asphalt evolves a lot throughout the weekend and the track gets quicker so it's very important to interpret this. In Germany we had a good performance and a good race so we're looking forward to Hungary because we should do better there".

Narain Karthikeyan: "I've only raced once in Hungary, in 2005, and I remember it being quite a technical and challenging track. Seven years have passed since then so I'm going to have to work hard and make the most of the practice sessions to get used to the track. The car should adapt well and we're also arriving with a good feeling after the German Grand Prix, so the ideal thing would be to finish off that good work with another positive result in Hungary so that we can go on holiday feeling good about ourselves".

Dani Clos: "I'm really excited about having another opportunity to drive the car in the first free practice session in Hungary. It will be the third consecutive Grand Prix and the fourth time this season that I get into the F112, and I hope to transform that continuity into a good rhythm and a positive result on the track with which to make my contribution to the team. To not compete is something new for me so I have to enjoy and make the most of these opportunities presented to me to continue learning".

Luis Pérez-Sala, Team Principal: "We arrive at a different kind of circuit to the one in Germany because the Hungaroring has a lot of slow turns and few straights, meaning that overtaking isn't easy. Dani will drive in the first free practice session once again and his work, just like in previous events, will definitely be of great use to the team. Both Pedro and Narain are in a good moment of form and given that in theory our car should adapt better to the characteristics of this track, I hope that we can continue with this progress to achieve a good result before heading out on holiday".
