Hungarian GP 2017

Before the summer break, F1 heads to Budapest for the Hungarian GP. It’s a very twisty track where passing another car is notoriously difficult. The top-4 teams are expected to occupy the first four rows with just one team per row, namely Mercedes, Ferrari, Red Bull and Force India. Bottas is predicted to start ahead of Hamilton although the latter has 5 pole positions in this circuit; the most of any current driver. It’s remarkable how little the order changes between quali and race due to the circuit’s nature. Race predictions have been updated after the qualifying.

I personally expect Hamilton to start and finish first with Vettel following. It’s also a track were the lower-midfield teams (e.g. Renault and McLaren) are expecting to gain a few points since performance is not affected too much by the engine power. Let’s hope Fernando puts on a great performance this weekend. I’m also looking forward to seeing the pace of Robert Kubica in the after-race test on the same circuit. I hope he takes Palmer’s position in the car sooner rather than later.

  1. Track sometimes are very important. That’s why Ferrari are 1-2 on the grid and most probably will win. Also good results for McLarens.
    I hope there’s nothing serious with Massa.
