At the Hungaroring everyone is hunting for Verstappen, the Ferraris are looking for redemption after the disappointing English weekend
Five victories in a row, seven out of ten races of the 2023 World Championship. In short, that of Max Verstappen is absolute domination: there is an abyss between him and his rivals. And the race starts again from Hungarian GP, from the Hungaroring. Here the last to triumph was the Dutch driver last season in front of the two Mercedes of Hamilton and Russell. This time we go to the track on 21-22-23 July. The weekend to be experienced entirely live on Sky Sport F1Sky Sport 4K and streaming on Now TV.
We have a couple of updates for the weekend, hopefully they work as planned so we can find something more for the next races, Verstappen said. It's still: I'm curious to see where we are on this track, where there is a lot of downforce in the low speed corners. A great track to drive, very technical. Definitely a place I can't wait to go back to.
The Ferraris, on the other hand, are returning from ninth (Charles Leclerc) and tenth place (Carlos Sainz) of the British weekend. A year ago they finished fourth (Sainz) and sixth (Leclerc) respectively. The Hungaroring is a technical and very difficult track for us drivers, said the Monegasque. There is also curiosity for Lewis Hamilton because Hungary is one of his strongholds. Here he has already won eight times, even in years in which it seemed impossible that he could prevail. However, data in hand, no one has ever claimed nine victories in the same Grand Prix.
