Mark Webber admits that starting on the dirty side of the grid is less than ideal, but remains hopeful of a good performance in Sunday’s Hungarian Grand Prix.
The Red Bull driver once again hoisted his RB4 into the top ten and wound up less than tenth of a second shy of Renault’s Fernando Alonso in eighth place.
“That was a pretty good qualifying session, quite straightforward. It would have been nice to have had a bit more pace in Q3, but Q2 and Q1 went well for us.”
But it will be a case of damage limitation for the Aussie at the start as he attempts to get a clean get-away from the dirty side of the grid.
“I’m disappointed I’m on the wrong side of the grid, an odd number is always better, but we definitely have a chance to get something from where we are, so we’ll see how we go tomorrow.”
Webber will have to fend off Toyota’s Jarno Trulli who starts on the clean side behind him in ninth, but could be there to capitalise on any problems that Kimi Raikkonen, runs into directly in front of him.
