Paul Hembery: "Hungary certainly couldn't be more different to the races we have seen recently, as we found out when we went to the Hungaroring for our first season of the GP3 series last year. However, as the GP3 tires are completely different to those we race in Formula 1, there's not much that we learned apart from an initial idea of what to expect: high temperatures and a slippery track surface.
"The big challenge for the teams and drivers is going to be keeping tire wear under control in the warm conditions, but we have used the P Zero Yellow soft tire in warm weather before and it has shown good performance. The supersoft tire is almost certain to result in some quick qualifying laps but obviously it doesn't have the same resistance to wear. How the teams juggle the parameters of speed and durability will once again form the key to their different strategies. There has been plenty of drama at the Hungaroring in the past and with so many new elements to the racing this year, I hope we're in for another exciting grand prix."
