Hungarian F1 Grand Prix: UK race start time, schedule and how can I watch on TV today


he last Formula 1 race before the 2022 summer break takes place this afternoon with Budapest hosting the Hungarian Grand Prix.

Hungaroring has earned a reputation as an incredibly grueling track in its long history as a mainstay of the F1 calendar.

Lewis Hamilton is aiming for his tenth win at a track he has dominated in his career but will start in P7 as his Mercedes team-mate snatched a surprise pole on Saturday.

World Championship leader Max Verstappen took victory in France last week but will start 10th after a power outage in qualifying, with title rival Charles Leclerc third.

The chances of another surprise result also cannot be ruled out with Esteban Ocon claiming a shock debut victory at the Hungaroring last year as rain wreaked havoc on the frontrunners race.

Here are all the details before the race…

George Russell claimed the first pole position of his Formula 1 career for the Hungarian Grand Prix on Sunday.

The 24-year-old edged Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz by just 0.044 seconds, with Charles Leclerc third.

Russell’s Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton qualified seventh with Max Verstappen 10th on the grid after suffering mechanical problems.

Sainz and Leclerc appeared to have secured a front-row lockout for Ferrari only for Russell to pull off a shock result with a brilliant final lap at the Hungaroring.
