Ferrari must strike back in Hungary after blunders at the last race in France handed Red Bull a considerable advantage in both the drivers' and constructors' battles.
Charles Leclerc's crash whilst leading gifted Max Verstappen 25 points to take his advantage to 63 in the championship fight.
Further ground was lost in the constructors' race after Ferrari dithered with its strategy for Carlos Sainz before finding itself in a peculiar no man's land and missing out on a potential podium.
But it is Red Bull's turn to experience a trying weekend this time out with Verstappen and Perez qualifying only P10 and 11 with the former suffering a power unit issue on Saturday.
George Russell will start from pole for the first time in his F1 career and with rain lurking around Budapest, Sunday's race could be one of many twists.

GPFans' F1 HUNGARIAN GP PREDICTION
Russell may start from pole and yes, Mercedes has more often than not this year been stronger on race day than in qualifying, but we still expect Ferrari to have the edge here.
With both Red Bull drivers starting down the order, Verstappen 10th and Perez 11th, the odds rate this as a straight race between the Ferrari pair and Russell.
With both cars in play against the first-time pole-sitter, Ferrari should be able to leap Russell with at least one car through strategy.
WINNER: Charles Leclerc
