Nick Heidfeld finished 12th for Jordan Ford at the Hungaroring today after getting a good start and racing closely with the Toyotas and Jaguars throughout his three-stop race. Giorgio Pantano retired with a gearbox problem from 14th place on lap 51.

Nick Heidfeld, 12th

"All in all a relatively positive weekend. I had a quite a good race, although not finishing in the points. I had a good start, gaining a couple of positions, and we made some small adjustments during the pit stops to help the balance of the car which improved it, especially for the last stint. The only problem throughout the race for me was in the second pit stop when the car fell off the front jack. I lost some time but I don't think it affected my finishing position."

Giorgio Pantano, DNF (Gearbox, lap 51)

"We had a problem with the gearbox. I think it maybe caused my two outings off the track, as when I changed down the gears, the rear locked and I went off. The car was not bad, once the tyres had been settled in for a few laps it felt good."

James Robinson, Head of race and test engineering:

"Bridgestone have done a fantastic job. Congratulations to them, Ferrari and Michael on the constructors' championship in a brilliant display of excellence."
