Fresh from the French GP, won by Max Verstappen after Charles Leclerc crashed out from the lead, F1 has a final round before the summer break with a return to the Hungaroring.

Verstappen’s lead in the drivers’ standings has swelled to 63 points over Leclerc after his triumph in France, while Red Bull now leads the constructors’ championship by 82 points from Ferrari.
Behind the top two, Mercedes will aim to maintain its recent momentum swing, having taken its first double podium of the season in France, as the team looks to close the performance gap to Red Bull and Ferrari.
Elsewhere, Haas has already announced it will deliver an upgrade package at the Hungarian GP but that only Kevin Magnussen will run the new parts. 
Last year’s Hungarian GP produced arguably the most dramatic race of the season, as a first-corner pile-up meant the race was red-flagged and saw Lewis Hamilton as the sole starter on the grid as the rest of the drivers pitted for dry tyres at the end of the sighting lap. With Hamilton’s strategy call forcing him to pit early, it opened up the race for Esteban Ocon to take his maiden grand prix victory.

The returning fan car revolution that could suit F1

Hamilton’s first experience of turning silver into gold
The seven-time Formula 1 world champion has been lumbered with a duff car before the 2022 Mercedes.
