Both Mick Schumacher and Kevin Magnussen admitted that they were not able to “switch on” the Hard tires during the Hungarian GP.

Schumacher and Magnussen had the Hard tires during their second stint at the Hungaroring. However, both drivers were not happy with the performance of the tires. The Haas teammates ended the race 14th and 16th respectively.

“I think at some point it felt like it [was possible to score] but then we put on the C2 [the Hard tires] and things changed pretty quickly. That C2 just didn’t work for us, especially the rear tires. It never really seemed to switch on, and, therefore, we kind of tried to go off it and then go on to the C3 [the Medium tires]. The last three laps were tough,” Schumacher said.

“I was hoping that the tire would improve at some point but it just never did. So it felt like ice in the rear for most part of the stint, really. And then I put the Medium on and everything felt a lot better.”

“The Hards didn’t work, couldn’t switch them on. So I was driving around on cold tires and then we swapped to Medium. It was a bit better but mostly the pace wasn’t there in the race, so we’ve got to try to understand why,” Magnussen added.
