Car 5 SEBASTIAN VETTEL, Position: POLE POSITION
"It was a very good day for us. We have felt comfortable all weekend and I think we were able to improve overnight also. I said on the radio to the team on my in-lap, "Mark and I were pushing hard to finish first and second, but this is your moment, enjoy it you built this wonderful car'. It's a pleasure to drive and I'm looking forward to tomorrow. It was quite a difficult session today. I didn't have a good run in Q2 on the option tyre and didn't feel 100 percent. There's not really much you can do to the car between Q2 and Q3, just little trims, but it worked quite well and I had a lot of confidence in Q3. I was able to go quite a bit quicker, so it was a good step. I'm happy to be on pole; hopefully we have a good start tomorrow and a good race."

Car 6 MARK WEBBER, Position: 2nd
"Sebastian did a good job. We have pushed each other most of the weekend, but he put Q3 together well. The tyres are the gold thing around here you need to get them just right, understand them and then nail the lap, they can be pretty sensitive at times. We'll see how we go tomorrow, it's a long race and I'm in a good position to get some good points. The first three seconds of the race can be crucial and can deliver 70 per cent of the result."

CHRISTIAN HORNER: "It was a fantastic team performance today. The team and both drivers did a fantastic job to secure a dominant front row lock out. Grid position is very important here, it's also one of the longest runs to the first corner, so we're starting the Grand Prix in the best possible positions. Hopefully we can have a successful race tomorrow."

(Renault) FABRICE LOM: "Our eleventh pole position. We really have a quick car this year and have been such a strong force on Saturdays. We have to build on this performance tomorrow and take advantage to score the maximum points tomorrow. It's not a difficult track for engines here and power is not the most important factor I hope we convert this to a one / two result."

Practice 3
Mark Webber: P1 Best Time: 1:19.574, Laps: 17, Chassis 3

F1 TWITS
If you want to know what's really happening in F1, social media sites are now the go-to places to find out what the so-called experts are saying. If only they were saying something intelligent...

CynicalF1hack Living in 1981 and Vaguely Frightened by Anything New: Welcome to Hungary, the land that vowels forgot. Good race!

Gridgirl-on-a-mission: And with all those Finnish fans. In their honour, I'll be mostly stalking Heikki this weekend. I love Finns, they're sweet but a bit shy. They spend most their time looking down at their shoes when they're talking to you. I met a wild one once though he looked at my shoes instead.

UltimateF1fan who thinks everything's just amazing: This place is amazing!!!! It has a water park right nearby!!!! Amazing! Is that for the drivers!!!?

Team Technician Who Knows Less Than He Thinks He Does But Has an Opinion on Everything: Only if they've completely misjudged turn 5. Which can happen. It's a grip-free track. If you go off line you're straight on the marbles.

Thirddriver-with-a-Grudge: It's a tricky corner but I managed it fine in GP2, Formula BMW and the East European Karting Series. Interesting too that this is the sixth time Red Bull Racing has raced at the Hungaroring.

CynicalF1hack Living in 1981 and Vaguely Frightened by Anything New: Sixth time! Mere children. I've been here for every single one of the 25 Hungarian Grands Prix. In the old days you had no timing screens. You had to write out a lap chart...

Thirddriver-with-a-Grudge: On tablets of stone. While watching the chariots go past. Silly old fool.
