After a dramatic double-header at the Red Bull Ring for the Austrian Grand Prix and Styrian Grand Prix, Formula 1 heads to the tight and twisty Hungaroring which plays host to this weekend's Hungarian Grand Prix.

Mercedes has locked out the front row once again with the Racing Points just behind in third and fourth.

With rain looking to impact the race, we could be set for a dramatic afternoon.

 

 

What happened last time out?

Round two of the 2020 season was dominated by Hamilton after the Brit stormed to one of the best pole positions of his illustrious F1 career - ending qualifying for the Styrian GP 1.2s clear of the rest of the field.

Hamilton converted it into an 89th career victory, with team-mate Bottas joining him on the podium to make it Mercedes' first 1-2 finish of the season. 

Verstappen finished third, having been overtaken by Bottas in the closing laps with Red Bull team-mate Albon coming home in fourth.

The race had a plethora of midfield action with Lando Norris overtaking Sergio PerezLance Stroll and Daniel Ricciardo in the closing stages to finish an impressive fifth - maintaining third in the drivers' championship.

Perez, Stroll, Ricciardo, Carlos Sainz and Daniil Kvyat rounded out of the top ten.

What to expect from this weekend?

Expect Mercedes to be the team to beat once again but the lack of straights should put Red Bull closer to the front. 

Ferrari will be eying a more competitive weekend after both cars failed to make the chequered flag at the Styrian Grand Prix.

Pirelli has nominated the C2, C3 and C4 tyres for this weekend - the same as in the first two rounds.

Wet weather is threatening to disrupt this weekend with there being a chance of showers on each of the three days.
