Hungary! A race that traditionally the Red Bulls have been very strong at, so Mercedes may have a race on their hands for once.
This race will be the 31st Hungarian GP, all of which have been held at the Hungaroring. 13 races (43.33%) have been won from pole position and 18 (60.00%) from the front row of the grid. In the last five races at the Hungaroring two (40%) have been won from pole position and three (60%) from below the front row.
17 drivers have won the Hungarian GP, with Michael Schumacher and Lewis Hamilton currently tied for the most wins with four each, so Hamilton could be the most successful driver in Hungary by Sunday evening. The most successful team is McLaren with 11 wins, but I doubt they will be winning their 12th anytime soon.
Nico Rosberg only leads the championship by a single point, so if he finishes behind Hamilton in Hungary he will most likely lose his championship lead for the first time all season. Quite amazingly nobody since Schumacher in 2004 has won both the Hungarian GP and the Drivers’ Championship in the same season.
The Silly Stats
The Rubik’s Cube was invented by a Hungarian, you could line 76,860 of them around the Hungarian GP, or if you wanted 14,832,564 of them would completely cover the track surface.
A great white shark would be able to swim the same length as the Hungaroring in 5:15.432, or to swim the entire race distance it would take 6:08:00.240.
