HRT score another two-car finish

HRT was happy with its performance in Hungary, as the team recorded yet another two-car finish.

Bruno Senna overcame a number of issues on his way to seventeenth, with Sakon Yamamoto coming home in nineteenth.

The team will now take time during the summer break to prepare for the remainder of the season.

Sakon Yamamoto – 19th: “I am happy for the team which achieved its target of a two-car finish. We decided to have a different tyre strategy as we started on prime tyres. This was good because we could get different data, which we can use in preparation for the next races. We are going to have a summer break in which I’d like to have a good preparation for the following races.”

Bruno Senna – 17th: “Our performance was better than in yesterday’s qualifying. It was a difficult race and to compete with the other teams was very difficult. But in the end, both cars finished the race and I want to thank the team, who did a good job. Now, we are all looking forward to the summer break and to compete again in the next races.”

Colin Kolles, Team Principal: “We are very happy about another double car finish here in Hungary. Our performance was much better than yesterday’s and we could improve a lot. The gap to the other teams was smaller than expected and during the safety car period and the following pit stops, we could even win a position. We decided to work on different strategies. Bruno Senna started on option tyres and changed to prime tyres at the pit stops while Sakon Yamamoto used first the prime tyres and changed then to the option tyres. It was a good result for our team again and everyone did a great job this weekend. Now we are having a summer break and after it, we want to tie in this positive result.”
