Can Lewis Hamilton get 7th Hungarian Grand Prix win?

Lewis Hamilton is the all-time leader at the Hungarian Grand Prix. His first win happened in 2007 and his most recent was just last year. He finished a massive 17 seconds clear of rival Sebastian Vettel in a dominant display. So he has that big winning form.

Charles Leclerc Fastest Lap


Things didn’t go to plan for Hamilton in a wet German Grand Prix last weekend. He was fighting off illness as well, which almost kept him out of the race. He was leading in Germany when he pitted after 28 laps and then it all went wrong. After dropping down the field to twelfth place 20 laps later, just five laps later he spun out, had to make another pit spot and was last.

Hamilton ended up finishing 9th. A blip in what has been a dominant season by him. He is at even money to snap back into winning ways this weekend in his Silver Arrow* (betting odds taken from bet365 on July 31st, 2019 at 9:36 pm)

Verstappen on the charge

With so many spins and crashes happening at the German Grand Prix, through the carnage it was Red Bull’s Max Verstappen who took advantage and got the win. That was his second of the season and the Red Bulls have been looking better and better as the season has worn on. The rise of Verstappen has been notable.

He has produced some stunning racing this season and he is in the uncharacteristic spot of being 9/4 second favourite in the outright winner market for this weekend’s Grand Prix* (betting odds taken from bet365 on July 31st, 2019 at 9:36 pm). Verstappen never got a chance to race in Hungary last year, a power loss ending his day in just the fifth lap of the event.

Bottas and Vettel continue struggles

Bottas missed a big opportunity in Germany to get a win on the board as he crashed out. He was in fourth when Hamilton went off the track and only had a Toro Rosso and a Racing Point car just in front of him. But Bottas preceded to go out on the same corner where Hamilton had done. Bottas couldn’t back in the race. After another uninspiring season, Bottas is still the closest driver to Hamilton in the title race, albeit 41 points back.

Sebastian Vettel, who has had another mistake-laden season, did pick up points last weekend as he managed a podium finish in second place. He was second seconds back of Verstappen. Vettel just doesn’t look like winning a race at the moment and that has been reflected at the bookmakers who have dropped him out at 8/1 to win this one* (betting odds taken from bet365 on July 31st, 2019 at 9:36 pm). Vettel though as won twice before at the Hungaroring, in 2015 and in 2017.

Leclerc misses out again

With all of the chaos going on Charles Leclerc missed an opportunity to go and get his first F1 win under his belt. He had been off twice at the same corner before it was third time unlucky for him. He went wide at the penultimate corner once again and went so deep that he lost all traction and the Ferrari driver ironically crashed into a Mercedes advertising board. That was a blow because he looked in good shape for a podium finish with Ferrari being on point with their tactics. Leclerc is at 8/1 alongside teammate Vettel for this weekend’s action at the Hungaroring.

Hungarian Grand Prix 2019 Predictions

The weather just caused havoc in Germany last weekend. But still, until things imploded for Mercedes, it was an under-the-weather Hamilton who was running at the front of the pack. Better conditions and he likely would have swept to the win. There seems to be so much unpredictability about the other top drivers in the game at the moment, it is just worth leaning on Hamilton, who has six race wins in Hungary to get another win there.
