Lewis Hamilton will be aiming to win his third straight Hungarian Grand Prix on Sunday and fifth overall as he chases Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg for the championship lead in the last race before the summer break.
Mercedes has won nine of the season’s first 10 races and Rosberg leads the drivers’ standings with 190 points, 14 more than Hamilton. Daniel Ricciardo of Red Bull is third with 106 points.
If previous results are anything to go by, Rosberg would not seem to have much of a chance to hold off Hamilton. Rosberg’s last three placings at the winding, slow Hungaroring circuit have been going from bad to worse — ninth, 10th and 19th. Hamilton, meanwhile, won in 2012 and 2013 and was fourth in 2011. He also took the top spot on the podium in Hungary in 2007 and 2009.
