Jenson's thoughts following yesterday's #FP3 & #Qualifying: "Until qualifying, it felt like it had been raining on me all weekend! Then, this afternoon, the car felt a lot better than it had in all the other sessions. That was a major positive. "I think it's the 'never give up' attitude of the guys in the garage: we'd been playing with the set-up all weekend " it's better now, but there's still more work needed. "Into Q2, we had reasonable pace and I think we did well to take seventh, just a few hundredths behind sixth. Seventh is basically where we are. "We don't know what the weather will do tomorrow. In the dry, our long-run pace looks okay, but all the guys ahead of me are very quick, so we'll see what we can do. "I'm on the clean side of the grid, so I'll be hoping for a good start."

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."
