Romain Grosjean says he wants to continue his good form into next weekend's Hungarian Grand Prix.

Grosjean finished in third place in the German Grand Prix, his second podium of the season.

"It was a great result for the team and we had a very strong race," Grosjean said of his race in Germany. "I was able to push really well in my first stint and thought I had a chance at one stage to challenge for the win, but the Safety Car meant I lost all the advantage I’d built up at that stage of the race."

"That then decided the strategy for us and ultimately we weren’t fast enough to challenge for the win at the end. There are a lot of positives to take from Germany so we’re very keen to maintain the momentum from that good result heading to Budapest."

Grosjean, who finished on the podium in Hungary last season, believes qualifying will be crucial at the twisty Hungaroring circuit.

"It’s a tight and twisty track so you need a good qualifying result. We showed last year that being on the front row certainly helps and it would be fantastic to be back there again this year. We’ve also seen that high temperatures work well for us and it’s usually hot in Budapest, so we’ll be hoping for plenty of sun again."
