Spectacular comeback by Max Verstappen, who started from tenth position at the starting line, to prevail in Hungary and deal a serious blow to the championship. The Dutch Red Bull driver took advantage of the bad day for the Ferraris, who finished off the podium, to caress the title and goes into the break with the best possible taste in his mouth.

If the transalpine team did not do well, Carlos Sainz finishing in fourth place and Charles Leclerc in sixth, the positive note was put by the Mercedes. George Russell could not ratify the surprise of Saturday, when he got the pole in Hungarorin, and managed to get on the third podium drawer. He was accompanied by his teammate Lewis Hamilton, crossing the finish line in second position.

Nor was it the day of the Alpine that worsened their performance from the previous day. Fernando Alonso, who started from sixth position, lost up to two places to finish in eighth place, beating his teammate, Esteban Ocon, despite the fact that he started from fifth on the grid.
