Hungarian GP Highlights

By Adam Tate, Associate Editor

The Hungarian Grand Prix has been dominated by the likes of Ferrari and Red Bull in recent years, an anomaly on the calendar, but a chaotic, rain struck qualifying gave us a Mercedes front row lockout and a poorly executed race on the part of Ferrari gave Lewis Hamilton a surprise victory.

The race was full of tension, controversy and excitement from the get go. From Red Bull suffering another Renault power unit failure for Max Verstappen, to his team mate Daniel Ricciardo’s heroic overtakes there was plenty going on through the field. Most eyes were up fixed up front to see if Sebastian Vettel could catch the Mercedes after making his only pit stop late in the race for a switch to the ultrasofts. While that didn’t happen, he did nab second after a lucky escape from the careening Mercedes of Valtteri Bottas and late race pressure from team mate Kimi Raikkonen.

If you missed the race, the highlights cover all of that and more. If you caught it, be sure and watch as a refresher on what F1 fans will be talking about during the annual summer break.
