2017 Hungarian Grand Prix

Fernando Alonso set the fastest lap of the Hungarian Grand Prix as Sebastian Vettel’s steering problems restricted the pace of the front-runners.

Vettel only managed five laps at race pace after the Safety Car came in before he hit trouble. “I developed a problem with the steering wheel,” he said afterwards. “I don’t know why yet.”

“It was quite annoying because it was a strange feeling. But then, at some point, I forgot about it and just tried to get used to it, which was tricky because it just kept changing and getting worse. However, in the end the pace was still there.”

The effect the steering problem had on Vettel’s lap times wasn’t that great at first. He lost around half a second per lap to begin with, but the one second per lap advantage Ferrari enjoyed to begin with swiftly disappeared as both cars were locked into driving at Vettel’s pace.

As Vettel’s handling deteriorated Fernando Alonso was eventually able to match his pace in the McLaren. Alonso, running in free air after getting past Carlos Sainz Jnr, was the quickest driver on the track more than once over the final ten laps.

  1. Well done, Fernando! It was quite a surprise to see fastest lap going to him at the end. Of course helped by the Ferrari, Mercedes and Red Bull going slowly, but still impressive.

  2. Despite renaults were faster than the midpack they were stuck behind slower cars (and unsporting driver) and couldn’t pass them.

  3. Looking it at this, I begin to understand why McLaren aimed for the overcut with Vandoorne, but he should have pitted only a few laps after Ocon did. Would have yielded a P8 I reckon (if he wouldn’t have slipped in the pits himself either). Massive drive by Alonso yesterday, especially the 2nd stint (identical pace to vandoorne in the first stint), but he always seems to get the better strategy, doesnt he?

  4. Look at that list! Fastest laps at the end of Grand Prix with low fuel and old tyres! Reminds me of the old Bridgestone days! It seems to be a trend this year with more downforce and Pirelli’s more durable tyres. I think that Pirelli has actually done a good job this year, with the exception of the hardness of the compounds. Fastest lap charts like this are proof of this. Softer compounds with this durability for next year, please!
