Hungaroring Race Thread

Racecraft? He was 4-5 seconds faster than everyone else, got to the front and stayed there until he retired.

Michael's a racer, Alonso isn't. He raced his heart out today, but they gambled massively on tyres, and made a big f%^king mistake :(:(

We'll have to agree to dis-agree on that one my friend. FA has proved to me that he, not KR, is MS's heir apparent. My assessment is based on the entire weekend not just the race.

This I have to agree with... and MY assessment is based on their careers so far, and the fact that FA has a title, and Kimi has been the nearlyman so many times now...

Entire weekend? Brake testing, playing games in practice under a red flag. He had massive car superiority, Michael was 7 seconds slower at that stage.

Alonso adapted his racing line to overtake MS, Didnt see Fisi do that and you can see the difference.

Tthat was hardcore racing from Alonso at the start, really showed his expeirence from karting.

That's racecraft :king:

I sort of agree and even if you compare driving styles you can see who is better at the present. Even though Im a Michael fan, sometimes you have to be honest and say Alonso worked hard today, too bad unfortunately things happen, I'm a fan of Alonso's driving style too, but not his attitude - which plays a big role too. However, I enjoyed the race today.

I couldn't have put it better myself.

FA fcuked up and was rightly punished, but to qualify 16/17 and then lead the race, ahead of the McLaren's and his team mate that qualified ahead of him, was impressive.

He was under imense pressure this weekend and aquitted himself better than MS - IMHO

Alonso did work hard, but I can't say I wasn't pleased to see him have a mechanical failure for once... it's just a shame Schumi DNF too.. could have made the title battle even more interesting than it already is. For that and JB's first win, I'd say this is a classic season.

Ahhh ive cracked open the vodka now :P

I think Alonso, Button and Schumi showed their class today but today did belong to Alonso and Button, both drove pretty faultlessly and I do honestly believe Button could have caught Alonso at the end. But anyway, ****ING YEAH!

Kimi was good but Button and Alonso are clearly staking their claim at the best wet weather drivers. They were both in a class of their own!

WTF?!!!!!!!!!!

What an awful and, in the same time, vivid race! Alonso OUT....what a trilling moment, I have to say, but then came Schumi's turn to surprise me and he was out to with only 3 laps to go before the end of the race!

Great job for Haidfeld, de la Rosa misses the experince as a full-time driver in F1, Barry...mhhh, today he got a fillip from his team-mate.

Ralf...you evil-kane-evil, he was lapped by Schumi and he just made the same stupid thing like in Suzuka 2003... selfish stupid bro., he forgot about last week-end when he finish in the same lap with the Winner just because the Winner wanted to be that way...!

Kubica...he didn't impressed me, he finished 7th out of 8....Arhhhh, in front of Massa, what a disastrous race for both Ferraris!!!

Michelin just beat Bridgestone in black and blue at intermediate tyres...Alonso was flying at the begining of the race!!!!!

Britons stop grumbling about the 13 number cause this race got him his 1st victory in F1! WAY TO GO, BUTTON!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jenson: The best feeling ever

Sunday, 06, August, 2006, 16:57

British hero Jenson Button described winning his first grand prix in Hungary as “the best feeling ever” after scything through from 14th on the grid in a race hit by heavy downpours.

The Honda ace, who has waited 113 long races for his dream to come true, hunted down world champion Fernando Alonso and stormed into the lead after a mid-race Safety Car period.

Once ahead, the 26-year-old from Frome, Somerset, made sure his driving was inch-perfect on a slippery track that could have been designed specifically for Jenson’s ultra-smooth pedal play.

“Wow, what a day, it’s been amazing,” he said afterwards.

“The conditions made the race very, very difficult for everyone but coming through from 14th and winning the race, I couldn’t have done it in a better way I think.

“I need to thank everyone – the strategy was fantastic and everyone within the team has done a great job this weekend.”

Jenson paid tribute to the Honda team which has struggled to stay on terms with Renault and Ferrari for much of this year, despite its pre-season expectations.

The low-point came in France last month when Jenson qualified 19th and was lapped before retiring.

But Button said that hard-work and perseverance had finally paid off for Honda, which scored its first victory as a manufacturer since the Italian GP of 1967 on Sunday.

“And it was nice to see that we have got a car that can win races,” said Jenson.

“The team has been working so hard and it’s taken so many years to get here, but we are finally here.

“I’ve also got to say a big thank you to everyone in the factory and everyone back in the UK for supporting me, as they have never lost faith which is the amazing thing.”

While its true that both Michael Schumacher and Alonso retired, it’s worth noting that they were both behind Button when they did so.

Jenson said that teamwork and good strategy was the key to his victory as much as the unpredictable conditions, adding that opting to short-fuel and stay on intermediate tyres during his second stop was critical to his success.

“If my voice sounds funny it is because I’ve been screaming so much,” he told the press conference.

“It was obviously fun closing down Alonso.

“We made a great choice on the tyres and also on the last pit stop, so we’ve been a real thinking team today we haven’t gone out there and just had the best car and won the race.

“We’ve thought hard about the strategy and we’ve won the race, not just through speed but because of our strategy and the way of working within Honda.”

With Alonso retired, and Schumacher, Pedro de la Rosa and Nick Heidfeld some way back, Jenson faced the ultimate nightmare for a first-time winner – the prospect of holding on to a clear lead in tricky track conditions on slicks (which he changed on to in his final stop).

But Button reckons he felt no pressure at all as he counted down the laps to a famous win.

“The last 10 laps I didn’t want the race to end,” he said.

“Normally when you are in the lead – I suppose – it goes on forever. But I was loving it.

“We turned down the revs a lot, I knew we would get to the end of the race – I had a 40 second lead and it was the best feeling knowing you are on the way home to winning your first grand prix.”

"Of course, I am very disappointed. We had a great opportunity but we did not take it. All weekend and especially the race was something of a rollercoaster and in the end, we found ourselves back where we started, although with one less race to go. The track rod broke as Heidfeld went past. We touched, partly because the track was still a bit slippery. These things happen. Did we take a risk staying out on track with intermediate tyres and in the fight with my rivals? That's the way I am. I always want to fight for the top which is why I have won so often. There are still five races to go. Nothing is yet lost and I will give it my all in trying to win the title."

Schu's title hopes dented - Brawn - 06 August 2006

The points gap to Fernando Alonso might be unchanged, but Ross Brawn admitted that Michael Schumacher's championship hopes took a hit in the Budapest rain.

'Yes, because there are less races now,' Ferrari's technical director said.

'On the other hand it could have been worse, because Fernando could have won, so we fight on.'

Schumacher's '248' ultimately exited the race with damaged front suspension, after a shunt with Nick Heidfeld, on a day on which rival tyre supplier Michelin produced genuinely better pace than usual wet-weather specialists Bridgestone.

BMW-Sauber's Heidfeld confirmed: 'Michael ran into the back of me and destroyed his suspension.'

Reporters asked Schumacher if he thought he had taken too much risk in the dice with 'Quick Nick'.

'You're always smarter afterwards,' the German remarked.

'Ok, it's not easier now, but we're still in it.'

Well this is my last post in this forum. I am really fed oof racist remarks, insults and people mistaking opinion and fanatism for reality. I must point out in this thread specially, with insults like spanish twat, or hairy spaniard. AS I Spaniard I feel insulted by these remarks.

About the race, we can see why Alonso and Schumaker are WDCs, great racing from both. We can see that Alonso DOES know how to drive in rain, and Schumi has a bulldog like tenacity that is to admire. A really good Hungary GP, the best race of the year so far. Kimi is still jinxed, and finally congrats of JB on his first victory, even if it was due to both Kimi and Alonso DNFs. Button will win others, he has the talent.

To posters lie Capdeville, Kiko, Autummpuma, Monza Gorilla, Senna and other I forget, thanks for the great times and opinions. To the others enjoy your life.

That 1 point means that it is still totally in MS hands -- as now if he wins all and Alonso second all, MS wins due to more wins. With 11 points difference Alonso would have won even if lost 2 points to Michael per all the races left.

So Klien had fuel leak...suprised no conspiracy posts about that :P Alonso was best at first half, is he better than MS on wet is hard to say considering how hard it was for MS at start. MS chances for win went for his own mistake colliding with Fisi, if he had not collided there he might have had chance to win. KR was not competitor for win, his car behaved weirdly in wet (after certain point PDR became faster than him).
