Arden duo left feeling hungry in Hungary

Telmex Arden International's difficult weekend continued in this morning's GP2 Series sprint at the tight, twisting Hungaroring, near Budapest. From 12th on the grid, Edoardo Mortara fought a hard, race-long duel in the thick of a closely matched midfield group but eventually finished 14th.

Sidelined in a first-lap accident yesterday, team-mate Sergio Perez was obliged to start from the pit lane after a steering problem required last-minute attention. He eventually worked his way up to 16th place in a race that was briefly neutralised behind the Safety Car, because of debris on the track.

Edoardo:

"This has been a difficult weekend. Today's race was better, but we still need to work hard to improve our qualifying performance. It was disappointing again on Friday and that's a real shame, because it affected both race results. I need to do some work on my starts, too, but today's wasn't too bad and I know what I need to do to achieve consistency. The race was subsequently a bit of a struggle, though, and I was unable to pass any of the cars ahead. I can only hope for better in Valencia."

Sergio:

"After starting from the pits, I treated the race as a bit of a test session -- and an opportunity to gain more experience of another Formula One circuit. There isn't much more to say, really, except that I did my best, as always. Yesterday's accident wrecked my weekend, really, so I'm looking forward to a change of luck in Valencia."
