The race highlights

It was no surprise to see this aggressive driving into the opening corner. And the 2 Red Bull men got a little too anxious.

Mr. Verstappen got carried away and locked up into the 2nd corner. That proved to be to the detriment of Mr. Ricciardo, as he lost control of his car and hit into the other Red Bull, thus Mr. Ricciardo’s race was over, and Mr. Verstappen handed a 10-sec penalty.

After the super start, the race settled down, as the drivers looked to preserve position ahead of a Key pit stop frame.

Sebastian Vettel led a Ferrari 1-2 in the Hungarian Grand Prix taking the Chequered Flag ahead of Kimi Raikkonen.
