Five Renault engines to start Hungarian Grand Prix in top ten

Frenchman Romain Grosjean will start tomorrow’s Hungarian Grand Prix in second position.

Romain blasted his Lotus-Renault to secure his best-ever F1 start, lining up on the front row alongside Lewis Hamilton, with a lap of 1:21.366 round the 4.3km track.

Four further Renault engined cars will start the 70 lap race in the top ten. Red Bull Racing’s Sebastian Vettel qualified in third position ahead of Jenson Button and Lotus F1 Team’s Kimi Raikkonen. Red Bull Racing’s Mark Webber was eliminated in Q2, missing the grade by the narrowest of margins and will start 11th.

Both Williams-Renaults entered into Q3 for the first time this season; Pastor Maldonado putting the FW34 into eighth position and Bruno Senna into ninth, the Brazilian’s best qualifying so far this year.

Caterham F1 Team’s Heikki Kovalainen and Vitaly Petrov will start 19th and 20th respectively.
