Lando Norris celebrated his second consecutive podium finish at the Hungaroring, but this time his special champagne foaming technique took a heavy toll, in addition to spilled expensive sparkling wine, in the form of a broken valuable trophy awarded to Max Verstappen. https://twitter.com/F1/status/1683143232073375744
Canadian Nicholas Latifi set the fastest time in the last free practice session before the Hungarian Grand Prix on the wet Hungaroring track in a Williams car, which was 0.661 seconds faster than the closest pursuer, Charles Leclerc.
Max Verstappen believes that Red Bull's cars will be no match for Ferrari's in the Hungarian Grand Prix if the track remains dry. Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc set the fastest times of Friday's free practice with the cars of the Italian team, while Verstappen was just three tenths of a second behind Leclerc in the afternoon. The weather forecast says that we could see a rainy race at the Hungaroring, which, according to the Dutchman, will at least give the Red Bull team some hope. "I think they are a bit ahead of us and we will have a hard time beating them," Verstappen said on Friday night. "We'll try to close the gap, but if the track stays dry we won't be able to compete with them, but in the rain we might have a chance." As has been the case several times before, at Red Bull they have not found the right balance between the fast
For the second race in a row, Max Verstappen was left without a fight to win, due to the consequences of the action of the Mercedes racer. After a collision with Lewis Hamilton in Silverston, the Dutchman was hit this time by Hamilton's assistant Valtteri Bottas, who crashed into the back of Land Norris and pushed the McLaren racer into the Verstappn race car. “I was knocked out again by a Mercedes racer,” he said after the race, where he won a consolation point. "You really don't want that. I was left without the entire flank of the car, the bottom was also damaged. I did my best to score at least one point. It's not much, but it's at least a few, but we want as few races as possible." Verstappen had a bit of luck in the accident, as the race was interrupted due to debris on the track, so the mechanics had some time to quickly repair the car,

While Bottas' teammate Lewis Hamilton, as the leader of the race, escaped the collision of Bottas and Norris, Verstappen took her out of it all with a strong
