Jenson's thoughts following practice yesterday: "I had a relatively good run on the soft tyre using high fuel, so I'm feeling happier about that, but the balance over a single lap is something we need to concentrate on tonight. "It was quite difficult to be consistent; the car felt different from corner to corner, from lap to lap. I like a precise car, and we didn't quite nail that today " but I think we know why that is and we'll change it for tomorrow. I'm not too worried. "Looking at the timesheets, it's quite difficult to know where we stand " we're not up there with the Mercedes or the Red Bulls, but the Williams cars seem a little less competitive compared to the last race. "We still have a lot of work to do tonight."

Back to back races! Jenson's #HungarianGP thoughts here: "As you know, this has been a special place for me for some time. I won my first grand prix here back in 2006 " it was one of those day when everything seemed to go my way " and I won my 200th grand prix here. That was an emotional day " and it was back in 2011 " I can't believe it was nearly 60 races ago. "The Hungaroring is a great track. Everybody thinks of it as a slow circuit, but, out the back, it's got some pretty decent corners " Turn Four requires some serious commitment, and it's made harder because it has a blind apex. Equally, the sequence of S-bends that make up Turns Eight to 11 are really satisfying to drive. "Nonetheless, it's still a circuit where you require lots of downforce and grip, and I think we are making positive steps in that direction."
