Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel suspects that he may have missed out on pole position for the Hungarian Grand Prix because he was not aggressive enough in qualifying.

Sebastian Vettel has said that he may have missed out on pole position for the Hungarian Grand Prix because of a lack of aggression.

The reigning world champion will start tomorrow's race in second place after finishing qualifying 0.038 seconds behind Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes.

The Red Bull driver told reporters: "There wasn't much missing, so Lewis did a good job, put a strong lap in. I was pretty happy with both laps.

"I was losing out a little in the middle sector, maybe I wasn't aggressive enough. But in the end I was happy with my lap but it was just not quick enough.

"Lewis did a good job as you can see from the gap to Nico [Rosberg], you have to respect that."

Vettel has never won a Formula 1 race at the Hungaroring.
