Verstappen explains why Hungaroring is one of his favourite tracks

Fresh off his superb victory at the German Grand Prix on Sunday, Max Verstappen is already looking forward to the next race in Hungary, which says has one of his favourite tracks in the Hungaroring.

At Hockenheim, the Dutchman secured his second victory of the campaign in the rain-soaked surroundings, with Sebastian Vettel finishing second and Daniil Kvyat in third. It has provided Red Bull with a good bit of momentum heading into the summer break, and he wants to keep it up with a positive result in Hungary.

“I like the Hungaroring, it’s one of my favourite tracks and I’m looking forward to going there again this year. It’s a very technical circuit and you really have to hit the apexes to position yourself well for each corner,” he told verstappen.nl.

“It feels a bit like you’re driving a big car on a small track as it’s so narrow but that doesn’t make it any less fun.

“My favourite corner is Turn 11, the fast right hander, and it’s a nice feeling when you get it right. A good exit from the final corner is also very important as the straight is so long and you have to carry good speed into it. Budapest is a beautiful city and there is lots to do in the evenings.

“The whole Team always looks forward to this race, it’s one of the warmest of the year and it’s normally a good track for us.”

In Germany, the Red Bull pit crew broke the world record for a pitstop in F1 with a stoppage of just 1.88 seconds, and Verstappen has praised his colleagues for their achievement.

“Germany was one of the most crazy and difficult races for me but it was great to come out on top. We all worked so well together and it’s amazing that the pit crew got another world record, even though they had to do nine pit stops last weekend,” the Dutchman continued.

“Now we go to Hungary ready to give it everything before the summer break!”
