Hungarian Grand Prix: Who is looking good for the win?

After an eventful race in Germany affected badly by rainfall, the F1 moves to the Hungaroring for the Hungarian Grand Prix. The 2019 Hungarian GP is the 12th race of the 2019 Formula One season and the last before the three-week summer break.

The Hungarian Grand Prix was first held in 1934 and since 1986; it has been part of the FIA Formula One World Championship. It was the culmination of  Bernie Ecclestone’s dream for auto racing to venture beyond the Iron Curtain. The Hungaroring track is located in a valley so it gives race fans excellent visibility.

Last weekend’s German Grand Prix proved to be a race to forget for Lewis Hamilton as he struggled with illness during the race. Nevertheless, Hamilton is likely to regroup and dominate at the Hungaroring.

Going into 2019, there were two tracks on the calendar where the Five-time World Champion had won six times before. Canada was one, and the Hungaroring was the other. Hamilton stretched his record to seven in Canada and looks well-placed to the same this weekend in Hungary.

However, Max Verstappen of Red Bull held off the challenge from Mercedes to secure the first pole position of his career for Sunday’s Grand Prix. Valtteri Bottas was second in the qualifying and Hamilton was third. According to Vbet, Verstappen is the favourite to win at the Hungaroring.
