F1 Hungarian Grand Prix – Start time, how to watch and more


The Mercedes driver drove a stunning late lap in qualifying to claim his first F1 pole position, beating Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz to first place by 0.044s.

The pole lap seemed to surprise Russell himself after qualifying as Mercedes’ pace changed after struggling during practice.

With Sainz leading Ferrari teammate Charles Leclerc in third, it still offers the Italian manufacturer the opportunity to hit back in the F1 world title fight after a nightmare qualifying for Red Bull.

Max Verstappen had an engine problem on his last Q3 run that left him unable to improve and dropped to 10th place, while team-mate Sergio Perez retired 11th in Q2.

Lewis Hamilton also had a mechanical problem in Q3 with a DRS failure that ended his last lap prematurely and dropped him to seventh.

McLaren’s Lando Norris took advantage of fourth place ahead of both Alpines Esteban Ocon – last year’s Hungarian GP winner – in fifth and Fernando Alonso in sixth.

In addition to Hamilton in the fourth row is former team-mate Valtteri Bottas in the Alfa Romeo, while Daniel Ricciardo finished ninth in the other McLaren ahead of Verstappen.
