Hungarian Grand Prix qualifying preview

Ferrari had been tipped to dominate in Hungary and all signs on Friday indicated it would be a strong weekend for the Italians.

The Scuderia’s superior downforce helped them top the timesheets in both practice sessions, while they were noticeably faster than the rest of the field in the race simulations.

The bookmakers are therefore happy to stay with Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc at odds to claim his eighth pole position of the season, and he certainly needs all the help he can get if he is to close the 63-point lead. of Max Verstappen in the driver standings ahead of Formula 1’s summer break after this race.

However, the weather threatens to wreak havoc in qualifying for the fourth time this season with thunderstorms set to frequent the Hungaroring on Saturday.

The last time the drivers had to qualify in the wet, Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz put in a stunning lap to snatch pole at Silverstone and the Spaniard is worth repeating that trick for a far more attractive price than his team-mate.

Sainz has a new engine – fitted ahead of the French Grand Prix last weekend – and isn’t riding with the weight of expectation that Leclerc is currently carrying.

McLaren’s Lando Norris generally performs well in the wet, taking third place on the Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix grid, and he looked to have the measure of the Hungaroring on Friday.

The Briton posted the fourth and second fastest times in both practice sessions and is worth a dart to secure the second pole of his career.
