Nico Rosberg is hopeful of a better showing on Sunday after declaring himself unhappy with his performance during qualifying for the Hungarian Grand Prix.

Rosberg, who took pole position at the circuit in 2014, was over half a second down on Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton at the Hungaroring.

"Unfortunately for me, something went wrong in qualifying which I can't quite explain at the moment," he said.

"In final practice I sorted out the problems from Friday and had a great feeling in the car.

"But then, as early as the first lap in Q1, I had to feed back to the pits that I had heavy understeer from the car. I tried to change some of the electronic setup but it didn't really work out.

"The positive could be that this setup might help me a bit more in the race, as understeering could keep the rear tyres more alive, so we will see.

"Even if I´m not happy about my performance today, there is still a lot to play for tomorrow."
