'Hope fight Verstappen and Hamilton happens the right way'

Next weekend Formula 1 heads to Hungary for the final race of the first half of the season. A summer break will follow. It is also the first race after the incident between Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton at Silverstone.

Jenson Button at the SkySports looking ahead to the weekend in Hungary. He believes the battle between the two world championship leaders has taken on a new dimension and the battles are now going to get spicier.

"It will be a spirited battle from here, which is good for us to watch, but whether it's good for them - I don't know! Emotions are running so high, these are two of the best drivers to ever drive F1 cars and it's going to be a tussle over the next few races."

Button hopes it remains fair

Because of course, despite all the emotions, that's the most important thing. Still, it will be interesting to see how they will react. "We just have to hope it happens the right way. I think after this race they will discuss it hopefully, that's what's important to me it's that these drivers understand what happened and they talk about it and they move on, and then they can fight as they should with the gloves off."

Hamilton will have the chance to make further inroads into Verstappen in Hungary, while Verstappen will again want to outrun the Briton.
