Formula 1 Hungarian Grand Prix – how to watch, start time & more

The Hungarian GP has been an ever-present fixture on the F1 calendar since 1986. McLaren is the most successful team at the Hungaroing with 12 wins, but Mercedes has won the last two races at this venue.

Red Bull hasn't scored a single win at the Hungaroring since 2014, although it did come close to ending its win drought last year.

Mercedes locked out the front row of the grid, with Lewis Hamilton claiming pole position from teammate Valtteri Bottas. Lance Stroll will start a strong third ahead of the sister Racing Point of Sergio Perez.

Red Bull struggled in qualifying at a track that was supposed to suit the RB16. Max Verstappen qualified a lowly 17th, while Alex Albon failed to get into Q3 and will start 13th.

But, as the campaign heads back to purpose-built venues once again, how the drivers of the two top teams compare in one crucial area will be a major factor in deciding which squad stays in or retakes the top spot

Stuart Codling weighs the life of a man whose work for safety on both road and track has saved hundreds of thousands of lives, but whose penchant for cruelty remains problematic and polarising.
