Hungary - Mercedes is not the certain winner of this weekend's Hungarian grand prix

Bounce back

Former Ferrari driver and regular Formula 1 steward Mika Salo, thinks Ferrari could bounce back at the Hungaroring after a difficult recent period.

The Finn told Ilta Sanomat newspaper that Red Bull is also expected to be strong on the tight, twisty circuit near Budapest.

Salo said: "And I think Ferrari will be strong.

"Mercedes could have a bit of trouble again because of their long wheelbase.

"But of course, Mercedes is always strong on every track, and so much will come down to qualifying because you can't really pass there.

"If you quality well, that's already a big part of the race." 

Improvements needed

Indeed, Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel said after Silverstone that it is Saturday afternoons on which the Italian team needs to improve.

But Mercedes boss Toto Wolff is not willing to say the German team is definitely the favourite for Hungary.

He said: "First I'd like to see how our car works there on a slower, high-temperature track.  

"That could give us a more complete picture."
