Both Sauber drivers were more than disappointed with their Hungarian finishes, with Sergio Pérez and Kamui Kobayashi ending the weekend in 14th and 18th positions. The Japanese, who suffered a miserable start, finished the race behind Heikki Kovalainen’s Caterham. This comes just a week after the team's best race of the season at Hockenheim, where the duo scored a total of 20 points.
“I’m afraid there isn’t much to say today,” Pérez began. “We were just lacking the pace. We tried to stretch my first stint for a different strategy, but in the end I think there was just nothing that could get us into the points today. It is a shame, but we will fight back after the summer break.”
Kobayashi’s comments were somewhat stronger.
“We have simply been too slow here. We have been struggling all weekend, especially with the Medium tyre. I also lost a few positions right after the start when I found myself on the extreme left side of the track with nowhere to go anymore.
“Finally, I got the call to come in because of a hydraulic leak and that was it. For some reason the Hungaroring didn’t work for us.”
Heading into the summer break of 11 of the 20 races in 2012, Sauber sits sixth in the Constructors’ Championship with 80 points to its name.
