Formula 1 Hungarian GP

2023 F1 Hungarian GP – How to watch, session timings and more

Formula 1 heads into its final double-header before the summer break with the Hungarian Grand Prix, which hosts the 11th round of the 2023 season.

The headlines have been dominated by a driver change at AlphaTauri, as rookie Nyck de Vries has been axed after just 10 races and replaced by Daniel Ricciardo.

The Australian, who raced for the Italian team in 2012-13 under its Toro Rosso guise, will be the central focus going into the race weekend because if he can produce strong performances it is likely to put Sergio Perez under greater pressure at the Red Bull F1 squad.

Perez trails team-mate Max Verstappen by 99 points at the top of the F1 drivers’ standings going into the Hungarian GP, with the Dutch driver on a run of six consecutive wins.

Red Bull also has the opportunity to set a new most consecutive F1 wins record of 12 if it triumphs in Hungary, having matched McLaren’s 11 straight victories from the 1988 season.
