F1: the Hungarian GP takes place on Sunday

Updated: Oct 6, 2021

Appointment number 10 of the F1 world championship. After the fireworks at Silverstone, with the excitement of the sprint qualification, the Hamilton-Verstappen accident, the victory of the Englishman and the first podium of the season for Leclerc, the circus of the F1 stops at the Hungaroring.

THE SITUATION


After three wins in a row (4 in the last 5) Max Verstappen saw his race in the British Grand Prix slow down, at the hands of Lewis Hamilton. The contact between the two, still under scrutiny by the federation, which wants to see clearly about it, caused a serious accident for the Dutchman, paving the way for victory for the Mercedes leader. Hamilton is now just 8 points away (185 vs 177) from his rival. Behind, however, the fight for third place rages with Norris at 113, Bottas at 108 and Perez at 104. Leclerc, with the second position at Silverstone, climbed to 80 points. Although Hamilton has therefore narrowed the gap, the Loginbet traders seem to have clear ideas on the antepost with Verstappen leading at 1.50 against the 2.50 of the current champion.


HUNGARORING, HISTORY AND CHARACTERISTICS OF THE CIRCUIT


The Hungarian Grand Prix takes place in Mogyorod, a northeastern suburb of Budapest. The 4.3 km long circuit will have to be covered for 70 laps. Hamilton, who has obtained 8 victories here (and 10 total podiums) has won consecutively since 2018. No success for Verstappen, who seems to have always been on this track. difficulty. The track is very winding and is one of the slowest in the World Championship. The high temperatures (on Sunday it will touch 36 ° C) and an always very dirty asphalt that is slowly improving with the passing of the sessions, will be two very important factors. Unlike Silverstone where the sprint qualification was tested, Hungary is back to basics with free practice, q1, q2, and q3 to decree the pole position.


VERSTAPPEN IS THE FAVORITE


Although, as explained above, Verstappen does not have a great feeling with this track, for what his Red Bull has shown in this first half of the season, he is a favorite in both qualifying and in the race.
