After 10 races in the 2017 Formula One season, Hungary is the next stop for the drivers who are aiming to be crowned world champions in Abu Dhabi later this year.
After this race comes the summer break then racing resumes on the 25th of August in Belgium. The drivers will be looking to take advantage of the momentum that they’ve built all season long before the summer holiday comes around.
And this weekend is the perfect time to that. Looking at the drivers’ standings, only one point separates Sebastian Vettel (177 points) and Lewis Hamilton (176 points). Bottas is third with 154 points while Daniel Ricciardo is fourth with 117 points.
After dominating the British Grand Prix from start to finish, Hamilton benefited greatly from the puncture in Vettel’s tyre. This helped him to cut the once-20-point-large gap to a gap of just one point.
Bottas is keeping up…and will be poised to take advantage of any slip-ups. With 5 podium finishes already this season – one being a win in Azerbaijan – Daniel Ricciardo’s consistency is helping him to lurk around the top three.
The drama in Azerbaijan still tops the list for best action-packed race so far. With cars racing at top speed this weekend, the Hungarian Grand Prix may just oust Azerbaijan by the time the race is done with.
But drama aside, who will win the race in Hungary? Of course, the two front-runners are Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton.
Will it be one of these two usual suspects or will there be an upset – a Ricciardo or Raikkonen or Bottas or Verstappen win? Leave us a comment and let us know what you think.Tags: F1, F1 Hungary, formula one
