HUNGARY

Lewis Hamilton has won a record six times in Hungary (2007, 2009 and 2012 with McLaren. 2013, 2016 and 2018 with Mercedes). He has also been on pole six times and can equal Schumacher’s record seven at the circuit.

Kimi Raikkonen, Sebastian Vettel and Daniel Ricciardo have also won in Hungary.

Alfa Romeo’s Raikkonen has made more podium appearances (nine) in Hungary than any driver. He has also had four fastest laps there.

The lowest winning start in Hungary was Jenson Button’s victory from 14th on the grid in 2006.

Hungary’s debut in 1986 made it the first F1 race in eastern Europe behind what was then the ‘Iron Curtain’. This weekend’s race is the 34th Hungarian GP.

Fifteen of the 33 races to date have been won from pole.

MILESTONE

Daniil Kvyat’s third place in Germany for Toro Rosso was only the third time since 2017 that a driver from outside the top three teams has appeared on the podium.

It was also the first time since 1988 that two different Honda-powered teams had drivers on the podium.

This year marks 25 years since Verstappen’s father Jos finished third at the Hungaroring for Benetton, his first podium in Formula One.

Williams’ Robert Kubica made his F1 debut in Hungary in 2006.
