Formula One arrives in Budapest this weekend for round 12 of the 2018 Championships.

 

Summers shutdown is almost here as F1 looks forward to summer hols. 

It's sad news as the death of Ferrari chairman Sergio Marchionne has been announced.    

Mercedes are 8 points ahead of Ferrari and Lewis Hamilton is 14 points ahead of rival Sebastian Vettel after the German's DNF at his home Grand Prix. Its not a comfortable lead for Mercedes, as boss Toto Wolff believes the Hungaroring does not suit their DNA. 

Plans for a Miami Grand Prix have been pushed back to 2020 after planners ran out of time to agree on the exact circuit. 

This time last year, We were celebrating 88 years of McLaren and Bruce McLaren's win at Spa. We were also sure of the Ferrari line-up as Kimi had been confirmed for another.

"Temperatures can be very high and the circuit itself is quite tricky technically, so it is a good challenge for the drivers." 

Toto Wolff
Team Principal Mercesdes F1 Team

"Hungary will see another tough fight with both Ferrari and Red Bull. It's a high downforce track and on paper they should both be very fast in Budapest."
