The British pilot Lewis hamilton (Mercedes) got yesterday the ‘pole position’ of the Hungarian Grand Prix, eleventh round of the Formula 1 World Championship, and will start this Sunday from the first place, a remarkable advantage in the circuit of the Hungaroring, where it is difficult to find a gap to overtake.
Will have to do the dutch Max verstappen, He starts from third position, if he wants to keep the lead before the summer break. For their part, the Spanish Fernando Alonso (Alpine) and Carlos Sainz (Ferrari) will start from ninth and fifteenth position, respectively.
Hamilton masterfully took advantage of Q3 to give a bang on the table and get a slice of Red Bull’s amazing tire change, who opted for soft for the last session. The Englishman was the smartest and won the pole with a time of 1:15:05. The current world champion achieves his first pole position since the Spanish Grand Prix (May 9) and the 101st of his career.
For its part, Fernando Alonso agreed to Q3 with sufficiency but could not overcome the ninth position and Carlos Sainz did not reach the final batch after losing control of his car and crashing in the absence of a corner in Q2, when he headed down the final straight to set a time that would have put him in Q3, according to previous sets.
