F1 Hungary GP Information, Analysis

F1 Hungary Grand Prix Prediction Course Details — Hungaroring

The 2024 F1 Hungary Grand Prix will be held at the purpose-built Hungaroring track, just outside the Hungarian capital of Budapest.

As we’ve already seen, the race will unroll overthe course of 70 laps of the 2.722 mile (4.381 km) circuit. And despite the high-speed nature of F1, don’t expect those laps to fly by. Hungaroring is a notoriously slow and tight track that requires the use of high levels of down force.

Being tight, the track also has limited overtaking opportunities, meaning the only real strategy to winning the race is to qualify for pole position. There have, of course, been some exceptions to this rule. But, as a general rule, it’s been the strategy that has delivered the most wins here.

As for the weather element, you should never underestimate it when it comes to Grand Prix events, as it can make or break the races and add an element of excitement and danger to them.

The weather in Hungary can be unpredictable, so what can we expect in 2024? While the event is a while away, the summer in Hungary can be warm and humid. Expect temperatures of around 22c – 26c on average, with high levels of humidity, sunny spells, and many clouds.

There will also be a risk of heavy downpours and thunderstorms at this time of year, though obviously, we won’t know until closer to the race. It should, however, be warm and dry, though humidity could be a factor.

F1 Hungary GP Odds to Win — Who to Watch

Max Verstappen picked up the win at the F1 Hungary Grand Prix back in 2022, and again in 2023 but will he be able to make it a hattrick in 2024? Here are some drivers worth keeping an eye on in Hungary.

Lewis Hamilton Odds

Lewis Hamilton loves the F1 Hungary Grand Prix track, and his record here speaks volumes of this.

In 2022 Hamilton had the fastest lap at the F1 Hungary Grand Prix and took 2nd place, narrowly missing out to Max Verstappen. He then came dangerously close to another podium finish in 2024, narrowly missing out when he came in fourth barely a second behind Perez.

The Mercedes legend will not only be looking to get back on course here, but he will also be desperate to show he’s still got what it takes to compete with the best. Not only that, but with his Mercedes teammate George Russell currently leading him on the driver’s championship standings, Lewis will also be looking to prove to Mercedes that he still belongs as their number one driver.

George Russell Prediction

Speaking of George Russell, he has come on leaps and bounds, and many are predicting big things for Mercedes’ current number two driver.

In 2022 at the F1 Hungary Grand Prix, Russell took pole position with a time of 1.17.377 and took 3rd place overall. Unfortunately, he only followed that up with a 6th in 2023.

He knows the course and will be high on confidence and fan support, so expect a good performance from George in Hungary.

Max Verstappen Odds

With the way he has been performing lately, Max Verstappen is always worth watching and has looked unstoppable recently. The Red Bull picked up the victory in 2022 and 2023, and as he chases his 4th World Championship, he’ll be looking to secure as many wins as possible.

Charles Leclerc Prediction

Charles has been performing exceptionally well this season, even if he’s destined to finish up well behind Verstappen. In fact, if you tally up all his races this season, he’s been on the podium more times than he hasn’t, tipping the odds heavily in favor of him finishing on the podium again.

Sergio Perez Odds

Sergio has been down on his luck lately after slipping dramatically in the driver’s championship after multiple DNFs. At this stage, we don’t expect this to become a pattern he’ll follow for the rest of the season, so he’s still figuring heavily in our list of favorites to make the podium.

Prediction for F1 Hungary Grand Prix in 2024

Alright, let’s take a look at our podium predictions for the 2024 F1 Hungary Grand Prix.

  • 1st place — Max Verstappen: Max is in the form of his career right now, and providing he and his car can stay healthy, we’re expecting another dominant season from him. We expect him to take 1st place in Hungary.
  • 2nd place — Sergio Perez: Sergio’s had a rough run recently, sliding down the standings after multiple DNFs. He’ll be out to make up for lost ground and will be very dangerous.
