Congrats to Lewis. That has GOT to feel good. Hopefully a great race tomorrow with how tight the Merc, RB, and Mclaren are.

I think Max will have a very difficult start, also with Lando.
He's on the dirty part (very dirty) of the track, so my guess is that he'll loose his start to Lando.

Nothing in it my friend, LEW knows he won't get away from MAX and without RUS his strat could be compromised.

With regards to race pace, preserving tires, Max has shown to be the best this season, so its safe to say hell win tomorrow. However! First 5-10 laps will be super exciting!

Will there be any rain tomorrow?

Checo at P9 let me down again !

Merc has found more HP and the RB19 upgrades didn't worked as expected by lack of wind tunnel time .
The RB19 struggled the whole weekend with balance issues by the new upgrades .
It made the RB19 not 0.2 faster but 0.2 sec. slower ...
The Ferraris look slower too !
The McLaren upgrades work really well .
Great P1 lap from LEW . He can stop whining now ...

The race ? (without incidents)!
It's all about race pace and race/pit/tire strategy .

Well . Anything can happen now !

Looks like Russell is looking like the king of driving crappy cars, Williams, underperforming Merc. Give him a good car, he looks mediocre at best and wildly inconsistent. The best at any sport are the best because theyre consistent regardless of environment, emotions/personal issues, health, they just get it done.

Well done by Hamilton. If both Hamilton and Verstappen manage to keep their track position after the start, we're in for interesting first laps before the inevitable happens.

Tight track and LEW will have to give way if his race pace peters out for him, he can't afford a DNF and MAX can.

Interesting fact i heard. Ham has 103 poles (now 104), 103 wins.

Has he ever battled from the back of the grid at race start, to win? I guess argument can be made, he can only win with a very good car, vs someone like Max who weve seen fight his way to P1. But damn, todays qualifying was brilliant by Ham

I'm hoping Lando will do well and getting a win is a tall order for the Brit but it's his best chance to do well at this mickey m track.

The problem is, RB requires all 3 practice sessions to dial in their setup correctly.

They lost a session and a half basically, and did what they could, and with the upgrades, they seriously required all of the sessions to understand and dial it in.

From one of the commentators, apparently RB is still 0.4 secs faster than mercedes on race pace, and a full second faster than Ferrari.

Plus RB historically does not do well at Hungary, RUS got pole last year as well, but Max still won the race while doing a 360.
