What a race it was, say it a dramatic one actually highly unpredictable is the right word for it. We all know it was predicted a typhoon at the circuit week back, but there was no substance of it not on the Friday practice nor Qualifying day even the race build-up on Sunday it was quite clear skies and no one could even think that it will rain. So the rain was last minute call and it lasts only for that one lap just to have the damage done, unfortunately, five of the drivers has to leave the race because of the race incident on Lap one turns a valuable opportunity for Alpine’s Estaban Ocon.
The dramatic second start where Hamilton leads the race on Intermediate greens from the track while others start from pit stop with mediums, though Hamilton pits on Lap 2 and “BOOM” it was a disaster he went all the way down to 14th position that was a huge disaster and terminate his chances for 100th career win in Formula One. Although he couldn’t be on pole position this afternoon, regaining the Championship lead from Verstappen is what he absolutely achieved with setting 3rd on the Hungaroring today. Currently, Hamilton is in lead with 195 points ahead of Verstappen with 187 in the 2021 Championship.
It’s a great tragedy for Red Bull in a row, Silverstone was already tough for them, and then Hungary a complete disaster with both of their cars involved in the unfortunate incident of lap one. Checo was out of the race following that incident and Verstappen was down to 13th position with severe damage to the car. He hardly could pull the car throughout the race and of course, it all goes to the driver of Max’s caliber that they ended up getting till P10 and earn a point, which leads Verstappen to lose the Drivers championship lead to Hamilton with 8 points and Constructor championship lead from RedBull to Mercedes with 10 disastrous points.
We don’t know it was the team ethics of Fernando what we saw today for Ocon but surely he gave a hell of a fight to Lewis. It was good 7 to 8 laps Fernando fight with Lewis for 4th position in the race ultimately a lockup made Lewis a way to pass him which shows great team ethics of fellow Alpine team and their strength to hold up for the midground battle. Then its first career victory for Estaban Ocon in F1, fighting the two world champions behind, eager to take charge.
It was obvious at the first sight it was Valtteri’s mistake, he ran into Lando’s back (gearbox) and Lando passengers itself to hit Verstappen at the same time Valtteri goes into Shining RedBull of Perez. On this incident, Valtteri has been given a 5 place grid penalty which is to be followed at Belgium after the Summer Break. In the same manner, Lance Stroll ran into the Ferrari of Charles Leclerc ultimately damaging the car further he was also made with a 5 Place grid penalty followed after the summer break.
Apart, it was such an interesting race even the midfield battels are quite tough we saw it with Riccardo holding Max and Alonzo holding Lewis also Schumacher giving the tough wheel-to-wheel fight to Verstappen and of course the dramatic and Proudest win of Estaban Ocon.
