Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton enjoyed a peerless run to his eighth Hungarian Grand Prix victory, winning out over the Red Bull of Max Verstappen, as he tied with Michael Schumacher’s record for most number of wins at a single venue.

Top Point Drives of the Day

  1. Alexander Albon (Red Bull Racing-Honda) 35 points: a top five finish from 13th
  2. Max Verstappen (Red Bull Racing-Honda) 31 points: second place after a disappointing Saturday qualifying and needing repairs after crashing on the way to the grid
  3. Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) 27 points: a perfect weekend capped with a second straight GP win and a fastest lap earned through a late pit stop.

Our Game

With 19 drivers finishing, our results were not too different from we had predicted, with John Cavelti running the table on predictions. With all 10 rows scoring, that’s a great achievement! After three races, only 13 points blanket first through fourth place.
