Did you watch the controversial Verstappen/Hamilton crash in Silverstone two weeks ago? If not, you should definitely do! Max crashed out with a 51G impact and retired while Hamilton received a 10-second penalty – still, he went on to win the race. In my view, it was a racing incident – one that could have been avoided if either driver took their right foot off the throttle. Red Bull has lodged a formal petition to review the penalty that Lewis received but I doubt any further action will be taken. With all this in mind, F1 goes to Hungaroring this weekend with the protagonists being separated by just 8 points.
The circuit is favoring the Red Bulls, however they haven’t won there since 2014. Given the recent turn of events, I think Max is going to win although Lewis will try hard to get his 100th F1 Grand Prix victory. Mercedes should also be getting close to a decision between Bottas and Russell, with the latter being the favorite. Bottas will have to do something extraordinary to keep his position in a championship-winning car!
