Lewis Hamilton holds the record for the most wins in Hungary (five), although the Briton has never won a Hungarian Grand Prix and a world championship title in the same year.
Twelve months ago, one man who did look like achieving that goal was Sebastian Vettel. The German hung on to win a nail-biting contest despite troubles with his Ferrari, team-mate Kimi Raikkonen complaining he was faster and a late surge by rival Hamilton. The plaudits were rightly given to Sebastian Vettel for managing his race well in difficult circumstances. A 14-point lead was in the bag for the Scuderia and the month-long holiday looked all the sweeter.
But the elation in Budapest turned to the stuff of nightmares after the summer break. Sebastian Vettel and Scuderia Ferrari’s season imploded in Asia in the space of three races.
Follow us later in the afternoon for the latest updates and results from the Hungaroring circuit, as the 2018 Hungarian Grand Prix is about to get underway, with Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen at the wheel of the SF71H, ready to challenge Mercedes and Red Bull for the win.
