F1 HUNGARY GP. The day after Lewis Hamilton’s surprise pole, the Hungarian Grand Prix this Sunday could prove to be more open than expected. Here is the TV program and all the info.

[Updated July 23, 2023 2:13 PM] The eagerly awaited new qualifying format held a nice surprise on Saturday at the Hungaroring. Lewis Hamilton took pole position, blowing the honors from Max Verstappen by 3 thousandths of a second. Each driver had to put on hard tires during Q1, medium tires during Q2 and soft tires for the last ten competitors in Q3. This new format should have already been tried out in April at Imola, but exceptional flooding got the better of the Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix.

The format of the Hungarian Grand Prix this Sunday will be more classic. What offer a new unchallenged domination of Max Verstappen, winner two weeks ago at Silverstone of his eighth race of the year, the sixth in a row? Not sure, especially if the Dutchman does not manage to take the best at the start, the overtaking opportunities being very limited on the tortuous Hungarian circuit, a real turnstile drawn near Budapest. The McLarens of Lando Norris and Oscar Piastri, already in verve at Silverstone, will be in ambush in 3rd and 4th rows.

Even deprived of pole, Max Vestappen arrives serene this Sunday. A third consecutive world championship title is already reaching out to the Red Bull driver, whose margin with his rivals is colossal. Dolphin of his teammate, Sergio Perez is already relegated to 100 points (99 exactly) in the world championship standings! The other teams have been resigned for a long time, especially since the Red Bull arrives in Hungary with some improvements, particularly in terms of the design of its sidepods, likely to save it a few more tenths…

The start of the Grand Prix will be given this Sunday at 3 p.m. French time.

The Hungarian Grand Prix will be broadcast on Canal, the official broadcaster of the Formula 1 world championship, from 3 p.m. Sunday.
