Formula 1: The seven-time F1 champion, Lewis Hamilton claims that Max Verstappen’s Hungarian GP win tells you all about the strength Red Bull’s RB18 challenger possesses even though Verstappen had a spin at the Hungaroring but still managed to see the chequered flag in the first place.

Surveying Verstappen’s most recent achievement and the RB18 underneath him, Hamilton said, “If you look at Max’s race, he started 10th, spun, and still won. That says pretty much everything about his car.”

Verstappen got an against-the-chances success in Hungary after a power unit issue in the qualifying brought about the Dutchman to start the Hungarian GP from tenth place. Red Bull suffered more misery as Sergio Perez had to start from the eleventh spot.

Meanwhile, Red Bull’s defending champ cut his direction through and took the net lead after Ferrari switched Charles Leclerc onto hard tyres, yet inside a lap dropped back in the wake of turning at turn 13.

Mercedes’ Hamilton in the long run completed second, 7.8secs behind his previous title rival. Meanwhile, his colleague George Russell finished third following his post heroics on Saturday after claiming his first pole of his F1 career.

Moreover, Hamilton is going through his longest win drought into a season, with his past record of a dry spell being 10 races in 2009 and again in 2013. The seven-time champion is the only driver to have won a race in every one of his years during his time in the sport.

When asked whether he could keep this record alive, Hamilton replied, “I hope so. It’s what we are working towards. This weekend there was potential for a win. You saw George [Russell] on pole.”

“If we had both been up there we could have worked a bit better together as a team, one of us would have been able to support the other strategy-wise. But if we’re able to take this pace into the second half of the season, for sure, we can start to fight with these guys,” Hamilton concluded.
