Max Verstappen will be keen to win the Hungarian Grand Prix for the first time in his budding career which has seen him win the 2021 World Formula One title. 
The Red Bull Racing-RBPT driver endured a disappointing race at last year's Hungarian Grand Prix as he finished ninth despite having started in position three on the grid. 
Verstappen has been in scintillating form in the current campaign and he won the most recent race which was the French Grand Prix on July 24.

The talented driver took a controlled seventh victory of the season after title rival Charles Leclerc sensationally crashed out of the race after just 18 laps.
Mercedes duo of Lewis Hamilton and George Russell finished second and third respectively in a memorable race which took place at the Circuit Paul Ricard.
Looking at the 2022 Drivers' Championship standings, Verstappen is still at the top and he is followed by Ferrari's Leclerc and Red Bull Racing-RBPT Sergio Perez respectively.
A win at the Hungarian Grand Prix will see Verstappen open a gap at the top of the standings with nine races left in the current season which is scheduled to end in November this year.

"It would have been a really good battle to the end, unfortunately, we never got to that, but luckily Charles is okay," said Verstappen after the French GP. 
"We're halfway only so there are still a lot of races to go, and a lot of things can happen. I don't really look at that lead. We still have a lot of work to do. 
"We are still behind over one lap and I don't expect Hungary to be particularly our best track, because I do think we are lacking a bit of downforce compared to Ferrari and that's what you need around there."
Red Bull Racing-RBPT are placed at the top of the Constructors' Championship standings and they are followed by Ferrari and Mercedes respectively.
