Williams preview the Hungarian GP

Williams preview the Hungarian GP

Williams are confident that they can adapt to the technical nature of the Hungaroring.

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

Pastor Maldonado: The track in Hungary is really slow speed and so we will need to adapt our set-up for this sort of circuit but we have shown so far this season that our car has good pace at different sorts of tracks. I have won here before so the track has good memories for me and the fans create a good atmosphere so I am looking forward to the weekend.

Bruno Senna: The Hungaroring is one of the most challenging tracks we visit all year. Technically it's a real test and it's quite a slow lap so reminds me in some respects of Monaco. It's also demanding physically because the temperature is often high and you have to do a lot of work behind the steering wheel so can get tired quickly. I have done well here in the past, particularly in GP2 in 2008, so I'm looking forward to this weekend.

Mark Gillan, Chief Operations Engineer: Logistics of the back to back races are always a bit more difficult with less turnaround between the events and therefore less time to react to any issues. The competition is so tight at the moment that one must ensure that you extract the maximum performance from the car - there is no room for errors. Pirelli bring the same compounds as used in the previous race, namely the medium and soft tyres. The circuit layout leads to very low average speeds, with only Monaco and Singapore being lower. This low efficiency metric means that you run the maximum downforce configuration. Teams also have to deal with the potentially high ambient temperatures which necessitate larger cooling ducts.
