BBC Sport - Hungarian GP: How artificial grass helped Daniel Ricciardo win
How artificial grass helped Ricciardo win
- From the section Formula 1
BBC F1 pit-lane reporter Tom Clarkson explains why a piece of artificial grass at the exit of the final corner played a crucial part in Daniel Ricciardo's win in Hungary.
Force India's Sergio Perez crashed on lap 23 after hitting the worn-away piece of turf causing the second safety car of the race to come out.
This enabled Ricciardo's quick-thinking engineer to revert his driver to a three-stop strategy meaning he was on newer tyres than the cars in front of him and helping him win.
