Benetton Aim to Show Germany Result was No Fluke

Wednesday August 15th, 2001

The Benetton team are hoping to continue with the good form showed at the German Grand Prix three weeks ago where, for the first time this season, both their drivers Giancarlo Fisichella and Jenson Button finished in the points after clinching fourth and fifth places respectively.

The Renault-owned outfit, who have struggled down the field during most of the year due to major problems with their radical new engine, will introduce several evolutions for this weekend's Hungarian Grand Prix in the hope of continuing their recovery from a terrible start of the year.

"After a great result in Hockenheim the whole team is looking forward to the race in Budapest," admitted the team's technical director Mike Gascoyne. "While the factory has been working flat-out producing new parts for the next Grand Prix, a two-week test ban has prevented us from trying out the new aerodynamic configurations.

"We have substantial evolutions for this Grand Prix given that this track should suit the B201. We have to aim to consolidate our 7th place in the Championship and to prove that the last race's good result was not a fluke."

Benetton have scored five points so far this season and are currently tied with Jaguar in seventh place in the Constructors' Championship.
