With just one point separating Rosberg and Hamilton in the championship, it could be Lewis’ chance to take the lead for the first time this season. In the past, he has won here four times and victory this weekend would make him the most successful driver in the history of the Hungarian Grand Prix. However, Mercedes are aware of a big threat from Red Bull this weekend, who are aiming to take the fight to the silver arrows.
After an incident filled qualifying, Rosberg takes pole position after a late yellow flag. A delayed session due to rain and multiple red flags, it ended controversially as many argued Rosberg had not slowed significantly under double waved yellows. However, he was later cleared by the stewards and will line up on pole alongside Hamilton.
