Brawn explains challenges presented by Hungaroring
July 29, 2011
Mercedes GP PETRONAS Team Principal Ross Brawn has explained that the upcoming Hungarian Grand Prix marks the conclusion of an extremely busy few weeks for everyone associated with the team.
Brawn said that the team will be afforded a “well-deserved” summer break, allowing them to charge their batteries before competition recommences.
Looking ahead to this weekend’s race, Brawn explained: “The Hungaroring is renowned for being a technically challenging track and it will be very useful for us to gain further experience of our latest developments there.
“It’s not a track where overtaking has been easy in the past, so it will be interesting to see how the combined effect of DRS and KERS improves the possibilities this year.”
He added that while the Mercedes GP PETRONAS team’s recent performances in Silverstone and Germany have been encouraging, the “pace is still not there to compete with the front-running teams”.
However, Brawn pledged to keep working hard to continue to find improvements.
