Hungaroring Overview

Formula 1 heads to Hungaroring, Budapest for the Round-12 of the F1 World Championship, the Hungarian Grand Prix.

Lewis Hamilton leads the championship standings by 17 points over Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel. Hamilton put a brilliant show in Germany after starting 14th on the gird and took victory as Vettel crashed out in front of his home crowd in challenging wet conditions.

The Budapest Grand Prix is always a crucial event as teams and drivers look for the perfect boost before they head to their winter break, it's crucial this year after a huge swing in the title race in Germany.

Ferrari is still the car to watch out for the win and Vettel will be defending his win at Hungary too. He started from pole in 2017 and won the race ahead of Kimi Raikkonen and Valtteri Bottas. The circuit has favored Reb Bull cars in the past and the team will look very competitive while Verstappen and Ricciardo will be the eyeing the top spot this weekend. Mercedes are expecting them to be a little slower than the Ferrari's but we have seen them match the prancing horses Sunday's.

The Battle in midfield is likely between Haas, Force India, and Renault.

Michael Schumacher holds the lap record in Hungary with a time 1:19.071 in his Ferrari, we expect that record to be shattered in the new generation hybrid cars.
