Webber On “Massively Disappointing” Qualifying Session

Mark Webber has branded Qualifying at the Hungarian Grand Prix as “massively disappointing”.

The Red Bull driver made his comments after the session which saw him suffer both KERS and gearbox issues. It’s especially infuriating for the Aussie as his Red Bull seems to be blighted with technical gremlins, as opposed to the other side of the garage.

“That was a massively disappointing qualifying session,” He said. “Obviously we had a lot of issues with the car and we left a lot of lap time in the garage, with items which weren’t working on the car at their optimum.

We had no KERS, and a basic gearbox setting that we couldn’t get out of, which cost a lot of lap time. I was happy with how I drove, but it doesn’t count in qualifying when you need everything at the absolute limit. Instead of challenging for the front row, we were challenging for the last row of Q3. We’re out of position with a car that is capable of much more, but I didn’t have the car today to challenge for the results I thought we could get.”

Webber’s team-mate Sebastian Vettel starts tomorrow’s Grand Prix from second on the grid.
