Guess who is on pole position for the 2015 Hungarian Grand Prix? Yep, 4-time Hungarian GP race-winner and current points leader Lewis Hamilton took pole position by over a half second for Sunday’s grand prix.
Hamilton has looked dominant all weekend and while he takes pole position, his teammate Nico Rosberg has struggled with his car trying to find balance. The short circuit plays into the hands of Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo who split the Ferrari’s of Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen. his long-run pace seems competitive but keeping Raikkonen behind him will be a challenge. Still, a good points finish could be on the offing.
Max Verstappen continues to impress with a top-ten qualifying run while both Williams exposed their short, twisty circuit deficit.
