Encouraged by a strong performance from Jenson Button in the German Grand Prix which saw him finish in fourth position, Honda is hoping to carry a more positive showing in Hockenheim through to the race at the Hungaroring. Team boss Gil de Ferran is confident the Hungaroring will suit his team's car.
"After a positive weekend in Germany, we now head to Budapest where we hope to achieve another strong result," said de Ferran. "The Hungaroring is a very tight and twisty track with many slow corners, requiring good traction and braking stability. It is also likely to be another extremely hot weekend which suits our car but is quite demanding for the drivers."
