Both Toro Rosso drivers got to Q3 in the qualifying for the Hungarian Grand prix. Pierre Gasly got sixth position on the grid while Brendon Hartley gave the 8th time.

Pierre Gasly

“It was a crazy qualifying for us, especially in these conditions but I’m super happy with the outcome! It was very tricky to keep the car on track, but the team made a fantastic strategy with the tyres and I managed to put a good lap in. It was super difficult but I really enjoyed it!”

“When I saw the rain coming before Qualifying I thought there could be an opportunity, and the result of P6 is just incredible, especially after the tough few weekends we’ve had, it’s really an unbelievable result for the team. To get both cars into Q3 was a great job and it’s a mega day for Toro Rosso. It’s really important to have a good Qualifying here as it is hard to overtake and in the race we’ll give the others around us a hard time! I think we have good pace so we need to stay focussed and prepare well for tomorrow.”

“The conditions were really tricky out there, but I’m incredibly happy to make it into Q3 for the first time! I had a couple of little mistakes at the end of Q3 when I started pushing the limits and I fell just short of Pierre’s time, which put us in P8. The whole way through Qualifying the team did a brilliant job with communication and strategy and the car felt good. I think we’re always hanging around the top 10, and to get both cars through today is a really big achievement. It’s quite hard to pass here so I need to have the best possible start and a good first lap. There might be some strategy in play as it’s a little bit of follow the leader around here, so hopefully we can hang on to a points position tomorrow.”
