Lewis Hamilton takes pole holding Max Verstappen in Q3

It doesn’t look like the Hungarian Grand Prix is ​​going to bring peace to Formula 1. Lewis Hamilton took pole position at the Hungaroring ahead of Valtteri Bottas, showing that Mercedes is still the dominant car in the category. More than half a second has put the champion to Max Verstappen.

Hamilton had everything to win, but has still gone a step further, slowing down his last lap as much as possible to prevent the Red Bulls from having one last attempt. Verstappen did have a chance to make a bad final lap, but Sergio Pérez found the checkered flag at the nose.

Carlos Sainz crashed in Q2 and will start fifteenth

In any case, nothing punishable by Hamilton, who has the right to make that last lap at whatever speed he deems possible. Who they have sinned suckers are those of Red Bull, who, refusing to overtake Hamilton, sent Verstappen on his last lap on cold tires and clipped Pérez’s wings.

Tomorrow’s departure promises to have a lot of tension. Not just because Hamilton starts first and Verstappen immediately behind, but because the Red Bull will do it with the soft tires, while the champion goes with the media. That is to say, everything indicates that they will arrive in parallel to the first curve.

Too Pérez will start with soft, and also Bottas with medium. With the tension that has built up since Silverstone, and that has been further strengthened today by Hamilton’s attitude, it is difficult to think that all four will come out of that first corner unscathed. It doesn’t look like it’s going to be a smooth race.

That’s why it hurts more the mistake Carlos Sainz made in Q2, one of those unforgivable that will make him leave fifteenth when he had speed to be in Q3 to spare. Sainz crashed into the wall in the last corner, so it will be his turn to come back, while Charles Leclerc will start seventh.

There is a third Red Bull car in the top five positions, and that is Pierre Gasly he finished fifth in the Alpha Tauri, and could also play a role in the start on the soft tires. Right behind is Lando Norris, who has once again risen with the McLaren when push comes to shove. Daniel Ricciardo crashed in Q2.

Good classification of Fernando Alonso, although he has punctured in Q3, remaining ninth, immediately behind his teammate, Esteban Ocon, and just ahead of a Sebastian Vettel who has completed the final session. Tomorrow at 3:00 p.m., a race that will surely give a lot to talk about.
