Lewis Hamilton has won a record five times in Hungary. Vettel has won two of the past three for Ferrari.

It has been 14 years since the winner in Hungary also won the championship in the same season. The last was Schumacher in 2004.

The lowest winning start in Hungary was Jenson Button’s victory from 14th on the grid in 2006.

Hungary’s debut in 1986 made it the first F1 race in eastern Europe behind what was then the ‘Iron Curtain’. This weekend’s race is the 33rd Hungarian GP.

Fourteen of the 32 races to date have been won from pole.


Vettel and Mercedes’ Hamilton both have four wins so far this season. Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo has two and Max Verstappen one.

Hamilton has 66 victories from 219 races and is second in the all-time list behind seven-times world champion Schumacher (91). Vettel has 51, Ricciardo seven.

Raikkonen has now gone 105 races since his last win, in Australia in 2013.

Ferrari have won 233 races since 1950, McLaren 182, Williams 114, Mercedes 80 and Red Bull 58. Former champions McLaren and Williams have not won since 2012.


Hamilton has a record 76 career poles, Vettel 55.

Verstappen, at 20 years old, can still become the youngest ever pole sitter this season. The current youngest is Vettel, who did it at the age of 21 years and 72 days.

Verstappen’s birthday is on Sept. 30.


Hamilton has 125 career podiums and is second on the all-time list behind Schumacher (155). Vettel has 105, Raikkonen 98.

Mercedes’ Valtteri Bottas has had five second-place finishes in 11 races.


Hamilton leads Vettel by 17 points.

Mercedes are eight points ahead of Ferrari in the constructors’ championship.

Russian rookie Sergey Sirotkin (Williams) is the only driver yet to score a point this season.


Mercedes took their 80th grand prix win in Germany, putting them fourth in the all-time standings.

Hamilton’s win from 14th place in Germany was the first time he had won in F1 from lower than sixth on the grid. Only 14 races in F1 history have been won from 14th or lower. (Reporting by Alan Baldwin, editing by Amlan Chakraborty)
