Hamilton warns Verstappen, Bottas: 'Up for a fight'

Hamilton warns Verstappen, Bottas: 'Up for a fight'

Lewis Hamilton says he is "up for a fight" in the Hungarian Grand Prix after qualifying behind his closest rivals in the drivers' championship, Valtteri Bottas and Max Verstappen.

Verstappen has outscored Hamilton by 23 points over the last three races, two of which have been won by the Dutchman, and hopes of the Red Bull man launching a late title bid were raised as he took his first career pole at the Hungaroring.

Bottas remains Hamilton's closest rival in the standings, 41 points adrift, and he too managed to get ahead of the five-time world champion.

With overtaking chances at a premium in the Hungaroring, Hamilton faces an uphill challenge to avoid having his standings lead trimmed on Sunday.

"Naturally we're always targeting first," he said. "Max did a great job, and so did Valtteri.

"It kind of got away from me once we got into qualifying but we're still in a position to get the win and we will be pushing on tomorrow.

"I'm always up for a fight. It's a long, long, long way down to Turn 1 so it will be interesting.

"It's not the easiest place to overtake, the strategy will come into it tomorrow, but I hope we can give them a run for their money."

While I'm a Hamilton Fan AND want him to win every race,I'm truly happy/satisfied Max is fighting for wins against Hamilton. F1 DID get a little boring bc No One was/could challenge Ham/Mercedes.
