Starting Grid 2018 Hungarian F1 GP

The starting grid at the Hungaroring

Event: Hungarian Grand Prix
Track: Hungaroring
Start time: 15:10 CET (29/07/2018)

Mercedes driver Lewis Hamitlon will start form pole at the Hungarian Grand Prix the 5th time in his F1 career. It's also his 5th pole position of the 2018 F1 season.

Because it's very hard to overtake at the Hungaroring, the current drivers champion Hamilton is also the favourite to win the race.

If he wins the 2018 Hungarian Grand Prix he will score his 67th F1 race win and the 81st for Mercedes and extend his lead in the 2018 drivers championship title.

Valtteri Bottas looks set to put in a good battle with his teammate, but starts on the dirty part of the track, just like Hamilton's title rival Sebastian Vettel in the very quick starting Ferrari.

The best chance to overtake Hamilton in the first corner will have Kimi Raikkonen in the Ferrari on the clean site of the track.

Wetter or not the race will be wet or dry is still very uncertain.

The race strategy that the teams choose will also be very important for tomorrow's twelfth race of the 2018 Formula One season.
