Verstappen looking forward to Hungary: I'm definitely ready

After his mega-crash at the British Grand Prix, Max Verstappen will be looking to bounce back in Hungary. Red Bull Racing have often been strong at the Hungaroring in the past and will need a good performance this weekend to regain their lead over Mercedes.

Bruises

Verstappen himself is happy that he can race again. Fortunately, the damage isn't too bad either, according to an official Red Bull Racing press release. "I'm happy to be back on the track this weekend in Hungary, especially after the result of the last race. Of course I have some bruises, but that's normal after such a big impact, but I'm training and feeling good."

Good test

The Dutchman says he has had a good dress rehearsal for the upcoming race weekend, especially after experiencing the worst crash of his career at Silverstone. "I did a 24-hour simulation race this week and it was a good test to see how my body would react to being in one place and behind screens for a long time. I'm definitely ready to go again!"

Verstappen is currently still first in the championship, but after Silverstone, his lead over Hamilton has shrunk to eight points. Red Bull Racing is also ahead of Mercedes in the Constructors' Championship, but the difference is only 4 points. A good result is needed.
