The Hungarian Grand Prix 2022

A track where, just like in Monaco, the teams with a slightly less powerful engine can be competitive. The last race just before the summer break is the place to grab a quick win (or podium) and go on holiday with a good feeling. While it should be a perfect track for the Red Bulls given the layout, Verstappen has never won it other than his pole position in 2019.

The teams will have to take the weather conditions into account. It is warm almost everywhere in Europe in early August, but it can get very hot on the circuit near the Hungarian capital Budapest. In recent years it has become apparent that Red Bull Racing can benefit from this and given the reliability of the Honda engine, this does not have to cause technical problems.
